It may look like a Toyota, but the Yaris is actually a Mazda wearing a Toyota mask. This means it's not only frugal, it's also fun to drive and delivers decent ride comfort. A six-speed manual is standard; a six-speed automatic is an $1,000 option. Given its size, it sports a surprisingly spacious 13.5 cubic-foot trunk, as well as two USB ports, a center console with storage bin, power windows and door locks, Bluetooth, and a seven-inch color infotainment touchscreen. A five-door hatchback is also available for an additional $2,000.
