Scion iA
MSRP: $15,700
The iA is an all-new model and the first sedan offered by the Scion brand. Power comes from a 1.5-liter engine producing 106 horsepower teamed with a 6-speed manual transmission. While there may not be a lot of power, fuel economy is impressive — expect 42 mpg on the highway, 33 mpg in the city (slightly higher with the optional automatic transmission). The iA is also one of the least expensive vehicles to earn the IIHS Top Safety Pick + rating, coming standard with a Low-Speed Pre-Collision System that uses an infrared laser sensor in the windshield to determine if a frontal collision is imminent, and then automatically applies the brakes in certain low-speed situations. In the IIHS Low-speed Autobrake test, the iA was able to avoid the collision entirely from 12 mph.
