Great Wall Coolbear vs. Toyota Scion xB
Coolbear: $5,000-$8,000*

Scion: $16,000**

Don't let the unusual (and adorable) name of Great Wall's wagon fool you into thinking it's a novelty: the Coolbear, which debuted in 2006, shares the same boxy design as Toyota's Scion xB (the Chinese car has a 1.5 liter engine, vs. the Scion's 2.4L). Great Wall, a big player in China, is ambitious: It currently ships cars to over 70 countries.
