2010 Nissan VersaEnlarge Photo
MSRP, including destination: $10,710
EPA Fuel Economy (city/hwy mpg): 26/34
Beginning last year, the Nissan Versa became available in a lower-cost Base version, with a smaller 107-hp, 1.6-liter engine that can still move this small sedan reasonably well with the five-speed manual transmission. There are no power windows or locks, no standard ABS, and air conditioning and cruise control aren't even available in the 2010 Nissan Versa 1.6 Base, but you get a remarkably refined, substantial-feeling car for around $10,000.
