9. Hyundai Accent GLS: $15,320
Good value? Not compared to other cars on this list
For 2013, Hyundai has eliminated the "phantom" $13,000 Accent (a stripped-down model with no A/C or stereo that was all but impossible to find); the cheapest Accent now has air conditioni ng and a CD player, with an automatic transmission priced $1,000 higher. The Accent is a good enough car, with handsome styling and a back seat that offers generous legroom (but is a bit stingy on headroom). But at $15,000, it's just not a great bargain -- the Chevrolet Sonic, Kia Rio, and Nissan Versa all offer similar or more equipment for less money.
