7. 2012 Honda (HMC) Fit
MSRP: $15,325

One of the small cars that kicked off the subcompact renaissance, the colorful and convenient Fit was hard to find last year when the earthquake and tsunami in Japan stymied supplies. The Fit's standard keyless entry, cruise control and CD player with iPod/USB jack are enticing, but modular seating, under-seat storage, 57.3 cubic feet of cargo room, 10 cupholders and combined mileage that exceeds 30 miles per gallon bring some cool perks to that little price tag.
