10 cheapest cars to own in 2012
Kia Rio LX five-door
  • Kia Rio LX five-door

  • Price: $13,660
  • Gas mileage: 30 mpg city/40 mpg highway
  • Five-year cost to maintain: $31,714
  • Cost per mile: 42 cents

Redesigned for 2012, the Kia Rio is more stylish than its bargain-basement price might indicate. The LX is at the bottom of the Rio pecking order where every model gets the same 138-horsepower, 1.6-liter, four-cylinder engine. As priced here, it uses a six-speed manual transmission to get power to the front wheels.

Despite being the entry-level version, the LX comes with air conditioning, trip computer, 60/40 split-folding back seat and a four-speaker audio system with satellite radio capability, CD player and iPod interface.
