2013 Ford Fiesta sedan
- MSRP: $14,000
- Safety rating: Top Safety Pick
- Estimated mpg:
Advances in design and manufacturing over the past decade have resulted in small but safe vehicles that are also pretty easy on the wallet. One such vehicle is the 2013 Ford Fiesta, which IIHS rated "good," its highest ranking, in all of its test crashes.
The Ford Fiesta comes equipped with seven standard air bags, has a safety cage reinforced using boron steel and comes outfitted with the AdvanceTrac electronic stability control that helps drivers keep the vehicle in control.
It doesn't hurt that the Fiesta costs less than $15,000 brand new and gets nearly 40 mpg on the highway.
