7. Suzuki SX4

Though it doesn’t have all-wheel-drive, riding this supermini can be fun. It also has a specious interior so it can be a family car, but only if your family travels light since the boot is really small. The price of $16,499 is completely justified.
8. Nissan Versa

The standard package has only a few conveniences, but at a price which starts at $9,990.
9. Mazda 2 Sport

It has an impressive list of standard equipment such as: power windows, mirrors and locks, air conditioning and electronic stability control. It has what it takes to be an excellent choice. However, its price of $14, 795 is a bit too high for such a small car, considering the fact that there are cheaper ones on the market, equally well equipped, or even better.
10. Scion xB
The Scion is considered the best and the biggest of all the compact boxed cars. It is not very cheap when it comes to fuel consumption. However, it is a very safe car, as the 2010 Scion xB ranked first in an ‘Insurance Top for Highway Safety’. Scion xB is fun in the town and great on highways as well.
