The Chevrolet Sonic is the first and most expensive subcompact on our list. Equipping a LT hatchback with the 1.4L turbocharged motor and a manual transmission costs $17,750, or about $700 more than a similarly equipped sedan. With fuel-saving tech like variable valve timing, and an electric power steering rack instead of a hydraulic setup, help the Sonic get its impressive fuel economy numbers.
