2013 Kia Forte EX
Average selling price: $16,256
Kia and Hyundai usually don't do deals, but they're not above discounting cars when necessary. Their cars are selling for 5.2% more than they were at this time last year. Their average incentives, meanwhile, jumped 25.5% from December 2011 to last month. Even with that boost, incentives reached just about $1,600 per car, the least generous in the industry. When those companies offer a new Forte with standard MP3 and Sirius-XM (SIRI) in the audio system, audio control and Bluetooth wireless in the steering wheel, a fuel-efficiency monitor, combined 32 mpg fuel efficiency and nearly 15 cubic feet of cargo room and a 10-year, 100,000-mile warranty at this price, it's worth a look.
