2010 MSRP: Starts at $15,350
Units sold in 2008: 301,440*

First introduced to the United States in 1968, this king of compacts has become the best-selling nameplate in the auto industry, with more than 35 million units sold around the world. It's extremely reliable, gets great mileage, and is known for its long life -- most of these small, inexpensive cars will live past 100,000 miles.

The E140 and E150 series of small sedans, unveiled in 2007, are its tenth generation and were given a redesign earlier this year. But don't expect anything flashy -- Corolla's dull basic design keeps the focus on its affordability and great fuel economy.
