With Fiesta, Ford finally got a compact car right. It's not the best looking car nor is it the quickest compact in the segment -- or quickest on this list of cheapest cars to own for that matter -- but it is a well-engineered, carefully made small car. As priced here, it comes with a five-speed manual transmission to usher production from the 120-horsepower, 1.6-liter, four-cylinder engine to the front wheels.

Owners of the Ford Fiesta S Sedan get a few popular features such as air conditioning, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, power outboard mirrors, and a four-speaker audio system with iPod interface.
