    What Edmunds.com says:
    The 2013 Dodge Dart offers a lot of space, features and style for the money, but underwhelming performance and some refinement issues dull the overall experience.

  10. Toyota Yaris

    10. Toyota Yaris

    What Edmunds.com says:
    The 2013 Toyota Yaris is what you'd expect from the Toyota of subcompact cars: economical and well-built.

  11. Mazda MAZDA2

    11. Mazda MAZDA2

    What Edmunds.com says:
    The 2013 Mazda 2 offers a fun drive in an economical hatchback, but comes up short when compared to more practical competition.

  13. Kia Rio

    13. Kia Rio

    What Edmunds.com says:
    On the basis of its inviting cabin, generous equipment list and strong engine performance, the 2013 Kia Rio is a solid pick in the subcompact segment. It doesn't ride or handle particularly well, though, so its rivals might suit you better.

  14. Scion iQ

    14. Scion iQ

    What Edmunds.com says:
    The 2013 Scion iQ is a minimalist metropolitan runabout that gets great fuel economy and can be parked practically anywhere. There are larger, more practical cars that cost about the same, though.

  15. Scion xD

    15. Scion xD

    What Edmunds.com says:
    Style and a long list of optional accessories make the 2013 Scion xD a youthful hit, but other cars in its class provide greater utility and fun.

  16. Smart Fortwo

    16. Smart Fortwo

    What Edmunds.com says:
    While the 2013 Smart Fortwo can be parked almost anywhere, a major plus for city dwellers, its unrefined powertrain and questionable value proposition make it hard to recommend.
