Cars.com's $16,000 Subcompact Shootout


(Cars.com)

Gas prices are high. Americans are downsizing, and automakers are meeting these needs with a slew of new subcompact cars. Cars.com along with USA Today and MotorWeek chose six recently redesigned subcompacts — and one aging one — for our latest Shootout, and they all had to be priced under $16,000. That might sound like a lot of money, but these are some the most affordable new cars you can buy.

The vehicles in the Shootout are:

2012 Chevrolet Sonic

2012 Ford Fiesta

2012 Honda Fit

2012 Hyundai Accent

2012 Kia Rio

2012 Nissan Versa

2012 Toyota Yaris

Check out the entire Shootout to find out not only which car won the test in surprising fashion, but also which car returned the best mileage and which had the best stereo and iPod integration, and meet the real-life couple who helped us make up our minds.
