2011 Smart fortwo passion cabriolet

Price: $17,690

Gas mileage: 33 mpg/41 mpg/36 mpg

Distinguishing it on this list, the fortwo convertible boasts the best fuel economy and lowest price.

The front-wheel-drive fortwo is a two-seater with a 7.8 cubic-foot luggage capacity.

Acceleration is leisurely despite the fact that the 70-horsepower, 1-liter three-cylinder engine has only 1,852 pounds (excluding the driver's weight) to motivate. No manual transmission is offered, but standard is a five-speed driver-shiftable automatic.

The low price comes at a cost of some standard features found in others on this list such as cruise control and rear audio speakers. Here's what fortwo's base price does get you: full power accessories, heated outboard mirrors, four air bags, keyless remote entry, three-spoke leather steering wheel with paddle shifters, and a two-speaker audio system with auxiliary input jack and USB port.
