3. Hyundai Accent Sedan: $12,445
The Rio’s sibling, the Hyundai Accent, can be had for significantly less, priced from just $12,445 for the sedan model. That number isn’t often advertised, but can be had for a base model with no air conditioning or power options. You still get that 1.6 GDI engine with a solid 138-hp and a 30/40-mpg rating and it’s not terrible looking. The advertised car is $14,195 and is more liveable.
At one time the Accent hatchback used to be the cheapest car on the market at under $10,000 but not any more. Gone is the three door and the new 5-door hatch will now run you $14,595.
