10 cheapest cars to own in 2012
Honda Insight
  • Honda Insight

  • Price: $18,500
  • Gas mileage: 41 mpg city/44 mpg highway
  • Five-year cost to maintain: $31,079
  • Cost per mile: 41 cents

Despite helping launch the hybrid segment, the Insight nameplate just never caught on as Prius did. Nonetheless, it is the least expensive hybrid on the market and does deliver very solid gas mileage. Its combination of a 1.3-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine and electric motor delivers 98 horsepower to the front wheels via a continuously variable transmission.

As the entry-level Honda Insight, the base version still comes with automatic climate control, full power accessories, remote keyless entry, tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, trip computer, and a two-speaker audio system with CD player and auxiliary input jack.
