The base model of a new Honda Fit starts at 16,500 USD and the top models are available at 22,000 USD.

Toyota Yaris

With an average resale value of 43.2 percent after three years and 31.6 percent of the on road price at the time of buying, after the first five years the Toyota Yaris comes in second in this segment. The on board audio system comes with a 6.1 inch touch screen display. It boasts a bluetooth, a voice recognition, an HD radio, a USB and an iPod interface.

Scion iA

It has a base model price of 16,000 USD and tops out at 18,000 USD with an automatic transmission and navigation mode.
