Similar to the Kia Rio, the Hyundai Accent offers generous back seat space, a solid warranty, a fuel-efficient engine and a keyless remote.

1. The Chevrolet Spark LS: $13,500

Another Chevrolet, the Spark, offers new additions in 2016. While $500 more than last year’s version, the Spark LS features a touch-screen stereo, Bluetooth, alloy wheels, OnStar, and a truly mature look. Where price is considered, it’s a little mid-range for cheap buys, but the dollars are worth it due to the Spark’s solid EPA fuel economy. With a collision warning system, lane-departure, and a good amount of back cabin space, the Spark is one of the best deals around.
