Is it cheap in the US? Take a look at the top 5 American cars

Every time higher car prices enter the conversation in Brazil, one of the members drops the phrase “it’s cheaper in the US”.

Of course he is right, an American needs far lower wages than a Brazilian to buy a car. But when we make the change, the effect is disappointing: as the dollar rises, even the cheapest cars in the United States do not fit in the pockets of most Brazilians.

Based on a workload of US $ 7.25 per hour for 40 hours per week, the minimum wage in the United States is US $ 1,160 (approximately R $ 6,400). Thus, an American only needs one year to buy a Chevrolet Spark, the cheapest car in the country, for US $ 13,400, equivalent to $ 74,236.

Here, with a minimum wage of R $ 1,192.40, you must have worked for more than 40 months to purchase the most affordable Fiat Moby vehicle in Brazil, starting at R $ 48,490.

Unlike Brazil, the final price of the vehicle in the United States is not announced by the vehicle manufacturer. In addition to the base amount, you will have to add taxes – which can range from 4.5% to 10.25% depending on the state – and shipping. To help you better understand how the North American entry car market works, I have compiled a list of the five cheapest cars in that country.
