When we say "cheap cars" what do we actually mean? Well, the word "cheap" in this contexct can't simply be associated to price alone. This is because a price that one person feels is cheap may be expensive in someone else's eyes. When we descrive a car as "cheap" what we mean is that the car is affordable in terms of the national average price of a used car and also the fact that a car may have been reduced in price. This is why the "Cheap cars" section of the website generally show cars priced lower than £10k and have been reduced in price.
