2. Chevrolet Spark LS: $12,995
Good value? Yes, definitely!
Chevy's Korean-built mini-car features cheeky styling, bold paint colors, and a tiny-but-eager engine, and its $13k price tag (unchanged since the car's introduction in 2013) includes air conditioning, power windows, alloy wheels, and a whopping ten airbags. It also includes a manual transmission; for those who don't want a stick-shift, automatic Sparks start at $13,920. The Spark's small size makes it easy to park and a lot of fun to thread through crowded city streets; it also feels solid and stable out on the open road, though it crashes over bumps like the budget-priced car that it is. Still, the Spark is a very likeable car that epitomizes the concept of cheap-n-cheerful.
