Best subcompact sedan
2007-11 Honda Fit

One of the subcompacts that started the class' renaissance, the colorful and convenient Fit gets by on a whole lot of flexibility and user friendliness. 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 and combined mileage that exceeds 30 miles per gallon bring some cool perks to that little price tag. Still wondering what would lure folks to a subcompact in the relatively go-go, gas-guzzling mid-Aughts? Try 10 cup holders. It's not the height of pre-recession excess, but encouraging five passengers to double-fist Big Gulps has somewhat lost its appeal after the economic collapse.
