Honda Civic
Price: $15,305 - $25,190
Mileage: 34 mpg Hwy, 26 mpg City

IIHS Top Safety Pick

It might seem like overkill for a car company to have two popular cars for less than $18,000. But that's their problem, isn't it? You get a choice of two dependable, cheap cars.

The base Civic feels more sedate than the Fit - but that means if feels more solidly attached to the road. The interior also feels much roomier and less box-like

The spaceship interior design is also highly functional, placing the digital speedometer way out front and up high where it's easy to see with the tachometer just underneath it. Once you get accustomed to it, you wonder why more gauge clusters aren't designed that way.
