POSTED BY Y Magazine

Y’s must-read guide to the top auto deals during the Holy month. This week, we take a look at three of the best entry-level sedans money can buy.




Nissan Sunny


First introduced in 1966, the Nissan Sunny remains one of Japan’s most heralded cars and for being a major driving force behind the rapid growth of the small car market.

It’s a compact car with a decidedly non-compact interior. Up front, the distance between the seat and the ceiling is 101cm (39.8 inches). What does that mean? Major headroom. Your passengers won’t get packed into the backseat either because there is serious headroom and legroom back there too. With the Nissan Sunny, everyone gets a comfy ride.

BMW 3-Series


The Bavarians have outdone themselves yet again to develop one of the best European compact sedans ever built.

If modern design, a sporty character and an unrivalled interior is what counts, then think no more: the BMW 3 Series is the car for you. The nameplate has been around for more than four decades and across six model generations. The new-look BMW 3 Series features a sharper and sportier design than its predecessor that helps it stand out against its competition. Little wonder then that the 3 Series is the world’s best-selling premium compact sedan.

Y Recommendation


There’s a reason why the 3 Series is a pioneer in the sub-compact sedan segment: the drive is sublime. The interior is also crafted with much attention to detail and the safety features are top-notch. We’ve grown to love the 3 Series a lot and it really is the “ultimate driving machine”.

The Dodge Neon combines high levels of comfort, exceptional roominess and a range of standard features and safety equipment, creating one comprehensive package.

The 2017 Dodge Neon brings unique levels of standard features to the Middle East compact sedan segment.
