Kia Rondo
Price: $16,395 - $20,195
Mileage: 26 mpg Hwy, 19 mpg City
Sales increase: 198.2%

Rondo sales have nearly tripled since last year with more than 12,000 sold so far this year.

The Rondo epitomizes what non-luxury car buyers are looking for now. It's not terribly exciting, but it combines small size, a low price and good fuel economy with space and surprising utility. It even fits in three rows of seats.
