We have put together a list of local cars that you could get for a whole lot less. With a choice between compact hatchbacks and sedans, these picks are an excellent choice for those starting their first job.

How did we pick? We selected models that met out pricing criteria by calculating the monthly installments for a tenure of seven (7) and nine (9) years at an interest rate of 3.4%.
