6. Nissan Versa
The Versa is still an exceptional value at a starting MSRP of just $12,800, making it one of the least expensive cars on the market today. Despite the exterior’s small look, the interior is surprisingly spacious and features enough room to fit four good-size adults without anyone feeling cramped. When outfitted with the constantly variable transmission (CVT) fuel mileage estimates are excellent at 31 mpg city and 40 mpg highway. Base models come with an input jack for the sound system, enabling drivers to listen to an MP3 player or music on a smartphone. Air conditioning is also a standard feature. Buyers can add Bluetooth, keyless ignition/entry, and an iPod/USB interface.
