Least Expensive New Cars of 2015

1 . 2015 Nissan Versa Sedan

Starting MSRP: $11,990
EPA fuel economy mpg: 26 31 city/35 40 hwy
As the lowest priced new car for the 2015 model year, the Versa delivers on its intentions: great gas mileage, a comfortable ride, decent cargo space and rear seat legroom at a bargain basement price. It has some ground to make up in the handling department compared to rivals such as the Ford Fiesta, but its still a great value.

2 . 2015 Chevrolet Spark

Starting MSRP: $12,270
EPA fuel economy mpg: 31 city/39 hwy
As Chevrolets most inexpensive vehicle, the diminutive Spark slots below the Sonic. It has a 1.2 liter 4 cylinder engine that puts out 84 horsepower. A highlight for the 2015 model year: standard OnStar with 4G LTE and Wi Fi hotspot capability for up to seven mobile devices.

3 . 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage

Starting MSRP: $12,995
EPA fuel economy mpg: 34 37 city/42 44 hwy
The Mirage offers a lot of standard features for its price point, including keyless entry, automatic climate control and a USB port. However, its minimalist cabin and sluglike acceleration make it a tough sell in the competitive subcompact segment.

4 . 2015 smart fortwo

Starting MSRP: $13,270
EPA fuel economy mpg: 34 city/38 hwy
What more can be said about this tiny 2 seat city car? Its maneuverability in urban environs may be unsurpassed, but its performance is lackluster at 70 ponies, and gas mileage remains unimpressive for a vehicle this size. That said, the model gets an overhaul for 2016.

5 . 2015 Kia Rio

Starting MSRP: $13,990
EPA fuel economy mpg: 27 28 city/37 hwy
Besides its stellar starting price, the Rio dazzles with some attractive styling and excellent 10 year/100,000 mile powertrain warranty. The upper trim levels are downright sporty, with better interior finishes and a host of options including push button start and a rearview camera. That said, if budget is a concern go with the LX trim.

6 . 2015 Kia Rio 5 Door

Starting MSRP: $13,990
EPA fuel economy mpg: 27 28 city/37 hwy
For a slight bump in base price over the standard Rio, the 5 door hatchback provides better utility and a downright sporty looking package. Available with a 138 horsepower 1.6 liter 4 cylinder engine, the Rios are among the most economical yet powerful vehicles of this Spartan segment.

7 . 2015 Nissan Versa Note

Starting MSRP: $14,180
EPA fuel economy mpg: 31 city/41 hwy
The 2015 Note is one of the roomiest small cars on this list. The hatchback has surprising rear seat room, and the storage is decent as well. Performance of the 1.6 liter, 109 horsepower 4 cylinder engine is a bit mediocre compared to others in the segment. Bluetooth connectivity is standard on all trims for 2015, and heated seats are now an option.

8 . 2015 Chevrolet Sonic

Starting MSRP: $14,245
EPA fuel economy mpg: 25 29 city/33 40 hwy
An agile player in the subcompact class, the Sonic has an attractive cabin layout and a comfortable driving position. The base 138 horsepower 4 cylinder engine provides decent acceleration, but the turbo has better pep and fuel economy. Standard features include Bluetooth connectivity and Wi Fi capability. A 7 inch touchscreen infotainment system, a rearview camera and lane departure warning are among available features.

9 . 2015 Ford Fiesta

Starting MSRP: $14,455
EPA fuel economy mpg: 27 31 city/37 43 hwy
From its sharp looks to sharp handling, Fiesta offers one of the most competitive packages of the segment. The 120 horse 4 cylinder engine provides adequate power, but the new optional turbo 3 cylinder EcoBoost unit in the ST is the one to spring for. Fiesta wins praise for an interior replete with soft touch materials, but gets demerits for inadequate rear seat legroom.

10 . 2015 Hyundai Accent

Starting MSRP: $14,745
EPA fuel economy mpg: 26 27 city/37 38 hwy
As Hyundais least expensive car, the fourth gen Accent excels in occupant and cargo space, but suffers in the handling department. The 137 horsepower 4 cylinder engine earns decent EPA fuel economy numbers. Standard features on this solid performer include satellite radio, a USB port, keyless entry, a tilt steering wheel and power windows.
