2012 Chevrolet Sonic Sedan
MSRP: $14,660
Average sale price: $13,999 '

General Motors ( GM) isn't too big for a small sedan. The relatively new Sonic's comfortable ride, smooth steering and combined mileage of nearly 30 miles per gallon (including 35 on the highway) make up for the manual transmission, but drivers get a lot of toys for the money. The base LS model includes a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, a 60/40-split rear seat, a trip computer, OnStar emergency system and a four-speaker AM/FM stereo with an auxiliary audio jack.
