Car buyers with poor credit interested in the convenience of a rear view camera should check out these ten 2015 models
Cheap Cars With a Backup Camera?
While most borrowers with bad credit will end up financing a used car, in many cases the option of financing a new car may also be offered. If this happens, careful consideration should be given to picking one of the more affordable models.
But just because a vehicle is affordable doesn’t mean at least one of the most recent, and popular, safety features needs to be sacrificed.
10 Cheapest Cars with Rear View Cameras
Starting with the 2018 model year, all new cars will be required to have rear view cameras. But with that deadline less than three years away, many manufactures are starting to offer this feature on some of their most affordable models – sometimes as standard equipment, as an option or as part of an option package.
To help you save time, we’ve put together a list of the ten most affordable cars that offer this useful safety, all with an MSRP of less than $19,000. In decending retail price order they are:
A rear view camera with guidelines is standard on all Honda Civics, with the Coupe LX equipped with a manual transmission being the most affordable model.
The top-line SX trim is the only Rio that offers a rear view camera, although it is standard, as is the 6-speed automatic transmission (a manual SX is not offered)
To get a rear view camera on a base Kia Soul, you have to order it with the 6-speed automatic transmission as well as the UVO eServices Package.
A rear view camera is currently available in just the top-level Titanium trim level, where it is standard.
The top trim SL is the only Versa sedan that offers a rear view camera as part of the optional Tech Package.
A rear view camera is available on the mid-level SV trim when the optional Convenience Package is ordered. Another plus is the fact that the CVT automatic is standard.
The LT trim and above offers the option of a rearview camera. To order it the MyLink Touch option must also be ordered. More good news is that for $400 more, buyers can get both Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning.
Like its hatchback twin, LT trim and above Sonic sedans come with the option of a rearview camera and the MyLink Touch option must also be ordered. Like the hatchback, buyers can get both Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning for just $400 more.
Like the Honda Civic, a rear view camera is standard. But the one on the Fit features three angles – making maneuvering in tight spaces even easier.
Although the Mirage is the least expensive car sold in the U.S., in order to get a rear view camera the uplevel ES trim has to be ordered. The good news is that not only is a CVT automatic standard, the camera is part of the optional navigation package.
