Cheapest cars (year/make/model) with parking sensors and camera?

I need to buy a compact SUV for someone with front and rear parking sensors and camera. What would be the cheapest cars with these features? I'm open to buying used too!

You should learn how to park first without being dependent on technology, it can only take you so far...

Sensors and Camera are bonuses, practice/learn without them first

You didn't mention a budget but look at used Kia/Hyundai

They are feature packed and depreciate fast.


SUVs are rarely easy to park. They are big and most modern SUVs have huge blind spots.

Consider a small hatchback instead with big windows

Sensors/cameras don't work 100%. You should get a small car with good outward visibility, like the Honda Fit or Ford Fiesta. Corolla and Hyundai Accent are also probably good.
If you must, buy a car that can self park (but again doesn't work 100%). I think the Ford Fusion has that option.

A 2014 Nissan Versa Note with SL tech package has an Around View Monitor.

Birds eye view of the car so you can park in third person. Combined with the fact that the car is tiny, you should have no trouble parking it.

But that's about the only good thing about a Versa Note though. It's a crap car in terms of almost everything else.

The smaller the car, the easier it is to keep it between the lines. Unfortunately, it is sometimes harder to get higher end features in small cars.

Take a look at the Nissan Kicks. It can be optioned with a 360 degree camera system.

Sounds like most of the soccer moms that drive these huge CUV's.

And this folks is what car selection has come down to for some people these days. Is the car good or safe? Who the hell cares because rear cameras and Crapple Carplay are what's really important :rolleyes:

"Hey man this car will have a camera(s) but you know what it don't have Carplay so you probably want to get a different one, that does."

WT actual F???

Your best bet is not finding a car with a camera and carplay, your best bet is to look at driving as an actual task you need to be skilled at in order to be safe, not one of convenience and phone features.
