  • Nissan Versa 1.6 S Sedan

  • Price: $10,990
  • Gas mileage: 27 mpg city/36 mpg highway
  • Five-year cost to maintain: $29,735
  • Cost per mile: 40 cents

If you want the updated Versa, the Sedan is the way to go. Nissan redesigned it for 2012, while oddly leaving the hatchback alone. As its price tag indicates, the Versa 1.6 S Sedan is one of the cheapest cars, but it's also a very basic car. Its 109-horsepower 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine sends its output to the front wheels through a five-speed manual transmission.

Standard features include air conditioning, a trip computer and a two-speaker audio system with CD player and auxiliary input jack.
