5. Toyota Yaris $14,370
The Toyota Yaris subcompact is just $300 cheaper than the Nissan Versa hatchback. With its J-pop exterior styling, the Yaris is an affordable subcompact, but a little lacking when it comes to features. Its only luxury are iPod and USB ports for your audio. With 106 hp coming from its 1.5L engine, the tiny Toyota gets a respectable 30 mpg in the city and 37 mpg on the highway. We have a comparison of the Toyota Yaris and the more expensive Honda Fit.
