The Malibu will be discontinued after the current generation In 2024.

including destination, the cheapest vehicles in the US are
  • $14,595 2022 Chevrolet Spark
  • $16,055 2022 Nissan Versa
  • $16,125 2022 Mitsubishi Mirage
  • $17,145 2022 Kia Rio
  • $17,670 2022 Hyundai Accent
Of that group the Mirage is the fuel economy champ but I would take an Accent, Rio, or Versa over the rest.

Sales of all 5 ultra cheap models were only 130,896 for the first 9 months of 2021. Starts price 2022 includes destination fee
  • 50,569 Nissan Versa $16,055
  • 23,895 Kia Rio $17,145
  • 23,007 Chevy Spark $14,595
  • 18,589 Mitsubishi Mirage $16,125
  • 14,836 Hyundai Accent $17,670

Consumers do not seem to value vehicles that start at under $20K. They may all vanish in a few years.

Sales for the first 9 months of 2021. Starts price 2022 includes destination fee
106,106- 2022 Hyundai Elantra starts at $20,875 for the SE base-level trim with destination fee
110,821- 2022 Nissan Sentra starts at $20,485 including destination fee
217,727- 2022 Toyota Corolla sedan starts at $20,075.

It's too bad they discontinued the Spark. I have now been driving it for 8 months. It's a great little car and quite peppy. The MPG is excellent, especially on the highway. At $5 a gallon I'm sure more people wish there were some still some left to buy new. Ironically, they are selling for $3,000 to $5,000 more used than I paid new with 6 year 0% financing.

My next door neighbor’s family has a Spark for one of their teenagers. They said it’s been much more reliable than their other daughter’s Smart car which they had to get rid of because of mechanical problems. Only time she had anyone in the back seat was occasionally giving a classmate a ride home from school.

Maybe they'll bring it back if gas prices stay high.

I wonder what their motivation is in killing a good thing.

Simple, few people were buying that small of a car, and there was no money to be made chasing the lowest prices.

I just got a 2021 Chevy Spark as a rental yesterday while my car is in the shop. This thing is like driving a tin can on wheels and sounds like a moo cow going down the road....all 98HP of it. I don't understand why anyone would buy this pile of junk and GM made a good decision to put it out of it's poor misery.

Neighbor’s kid has one. It’s interesting to see this nearly 6 feet tall guy and his girlfriend step out this car. He uses it to drive back and forth from school and work. He would love something else but he can’t afford anything right now, especially with used car prices.
