4. 2014 Kia Rio SX Sedan
Selling price: $16,457
Kia just launched its flagship midsize with a Super Bowl commercial, but there's always room on the lot for this subcompact.
Though Kia sales slumped in the U.S. last year, the Kia Rio's combined 32 miles per gallon are always in demand. With remote keyless entry, Bluetooth, sport suspension, a rearview camera and Kia's UVO entertainment and information system, Sirius XM satellite radio, heated power-folding mirrors, LED lights, paddle shifters and more, this sporty little package gives away a lot for the money.
Throw in the 10-year warranty on the power train and 5-year warranty on everything else, and even a slight discount makes a difference.
