2013 Ford Fiesta
EPA highway mileage: 39 miles per gallon.
Base price: $13,200
Target Demographic: The same people who would have bought a Yaris or a Fortwo, but have a small child or two.
Sedan or hatchback, four doors or five, the Ford Fiesta comes with more options and bit more oomph than its high-mileage, low-size competitors. The 1.6-liter engine gives you 120 horsepower, and it claims to be able to sit five, although Ford never specifies just how big—or small—those five are supposed to be.
