8. Chevy Sonic Sedan: $13,735
One of the most exciting models on the list is the replacement to the lackluster Aveo, the Chevrolet Sonic. Starting at $13,735 it’s a fine machine with a cool interior, lots of passenger and cargo room, standard alloy wheels, keyless entry, 10 airbags and even a hill-hold control system for 6-speed manual transmission models. The base engine is a 1.8L 4-cylinder with a 25/36-mpg rating. It will cost an additional $700 for the 1.4L Turbo with a 29/40-mpg rating. That price is only for the sedan model, with a hatchback at $14,635.
