Ford Focus
Price: $15,520 - $18,265
Mileage: 35 mpg Hwy, 24 mpg City

The Focus is a decent little compact car. It's not particularly fun to drive, but it is as dependable as any car out there, thanks to Ford's successful push to improve quality in all its vehicles. (A new two-door version offers sportier performance, Ford promises.)

The Focus also offers some very interesting optional features you won't find on any other inexpensive small car. Lighted cupholders are great, and here's the bonus: With the press of a button you can change the color of the cupholder lights to suit your ever-changing moods and beverage choices.

You can also hook up your MP3 player, memory stick or Bluetooth cell phone through Ford's Sync system and play music using easy voice commands.
