On the 5th place is the 2013 Smart ForTwo, priced $13,240, which does not come with power windows or air conditioning in its basic form. The vehicle’s 106.1 inches helps the driver park the car in the tightest spaces, is powered by a 70-hp 1.0-liter 3-cylinder and is the cheapest vehicle with an automatic transmission.
The 4ht place is taken by the 2013 Kia Rio, priced $14,400, which impresses with its elegant exterior stilling. The vehicle comes with 138-hp 1.6-liter inline-4 and 6-speed manual transmission.

On the 3rd place is the 2013 Nissan Versa, priced $12,780, which comes with an impressive rear legroom of 37 inches and a spacious truck. The Versa 1.6 S is the cheapest new car in the US, but unfortunately the vehicle does not impress with its exterior design.

The 1st place is taken by the 2013 Chevrolet Spark, priced $12,995, which really manages to stand out among its peers. The 5-door hatchback features a large front grille, oversized headlights and hidden rear door handles. The inside is quite spacious for what is considered the second shortest car in the list.
