Small, inexpensive cars no longer mean nondescript, economy cars, lacking any semblance of style. The relatively new "minicar" segment has been growing in popularity over the past few years, and for good reason.

These models are perfect for car shoppers who are looking for a car with a unique look on a small budget. For the most part, ownership costs for minicars are low since they are relatively inexpensive to insure and have great fuel economy, which keeps gas costs low.

This segment offers a wide array of minicars. Here are Bankrate's favorite minicars. All models are 2013, except the Ford Fiesta, which is a 2014 model.
