    2012 Kia Rio

    2012 Kia Rio The current Kia Rio subcompact is very much from the cheap and (kind of) cheerful school of economy car design. The 2012 Rio did not attend that school. From it’s sleek euro-inspired exterior to a cabin with the same look and feel as Kia’s Optima sedan and best-in-class power from its new 1.6-liter four cylinder motor, this sub-$13G five or four-door will be in the running for Valedictorian when it goes on sale this summer. For extra credit it has a fuel economy rating of 30 mpg city/40 mpg highway thanks in part to a stop/start system that shuts off the engine when the car isn’t moving and a choice of six-speed manual or automatic transmissions.

    2012 Fiat 500C

    Fiat 500C Fiat has only just returned to the United States with its 500 coupe, but the new cabriolet is here just in time for summer. With a starting price of $19,500, the not-quite-a-convertible will be the least-expensive drop-top you can buy when it hits showrooms in May, and its unique design means you don’t give up any of the microcar’s precious interior space to add a little sunshine to your dolce vita.

    VW Bulli

    VW Bulli Concept For those who think the Beetle just isn't cute enough, the Bulli is on the way...maybe. A concept car that hearkens back to the flower-power VW Microbus, the little electric crossover has a front bench seat that can fold down along with the second row to create a bed. With an iPod dock in the dashboard, it's nicer than some NY studio apartments. Click here to watch our 2011 New York Auto Show special report.

    2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8

    2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 Most Jeeps are meant for off-roading and so is this one, if you consider a race track off road. The Grand Cherokee SRT8 is powered by the biggest HEMI V8 yet, a 6.4-liter monster that pumps 465 hp through an all-wheel-drive system programmed to put it to the pavement. A retuned suspension and big Brembo brakes capable of handling the SUV's limited 155 mph top speed round out the package. Of course, if its capability you want, even this Grand Cherokee can tow 5,000 pounds, but you'll likely be hauling something else with it. Click here for a look at the Grand Cherokee SRT8 with Jeep CEO Mike Manley.

    2013 Chevrolet Malibu ECO

    2013 Chevrolet Malibu ECO Everyone knew Chevrolet was bringing its new Malibu to New York, but nobody knew about this. Chevy doesn't call it a hybrid, but the Malibu ECO uses a small electric motor and lithium-ion battery pack combined with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, low rolling resistant tires and active shutters in the grille that can close to streamline the car when cooling isn't needed to deliver 38 mpg highway, making it the most fuel efficient Malibu ever.

    2012 Nissan Versa

    2012 Nissan Versa The Versa was once the least-expensive car in America, and the new one looks set to reclaim that title when it hits the road this summer. But unlike the old stripper, for just $10,999 the new Versa comes standard with air conditioning and a CD/Stereo. Opt for the CVT automatic transmission and you also get a combined fuel efficiency rating of 33 mpg, making this an economy car in more ways than one.

    Mercedes-Benz Concept A-Class

    Mercedes-Benz Concept A-Class Proof that compact economy cars don't have to be dull comes in the form of the Mercedes-Benz Concept A-Class, a possible sneak peek at the next generation of the automaker's smallest car. Not currently sold in the U.S., the front-wheel-drive A-Class matches up against the likes of the Audi A3 and could come here as gas prices continue to rise. Mercedes says the car's flowing design was drawn from wind and waves, but it's power comes from a 210 hp four-cylinder turbocharged engine.

    2013 Chevrolet Malibu

    2013 Chevrolet Malibu Bigger isn't always better. The new Chevy Malibu is slightly smaller than the one it replaces, but gets a fresh new look that combines a bold front end, wedge profile and tail lights inspired by the Camaro. Under the hood is a new 190 hp four-cylinder engine, and there is no six-cylinder option, but with six-speed transmissions and high-tech direct fuel injection, it promises to deliver more than enough power and fuel economy for your midsize sedan needs.

    2012 Volkswagen Beetle

    2012 Volkswagen Beetle First it was the People's Car, then it was a chick car, now VW's little bug looks like its gotten a little angry. Lower, longer and wider than the outgoing New Beetle, the newest Beetle is an all-new car that is aimed to please everyone. With a selection of five-cylinder, turbo and a turbodiesel engine that's good for 40 miles per gallon, it seems to have all the angles covered even if its rounded body still doesn't have any.

    Nissan Leaf Nismo RC

    Nissan Leaf Nismo RC It won't go far, but it will sure get there quickly. Designed by Nissan's in house performance arm, Nismo, the Leaf Nismo RC (Racing Competition, not Remote Control) is a purpose-built, carbon fiber racing car concept inspired by the company's new all-electric commuter. Using the same motor and battery from the production car - now installed behind the front seats and driving the rear wheels - the lightweight 2-door can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 6.85 seconds and hit a blistering top speed of 93 miles per hour. Driven in anger on the track, Nissan says it can run for approximately 20 minutes, and it is seriously considering starting a racing series designed around the car. It may be the perfect motorsport for racing fans with short attention spans. Click here for a look at the Leaf Nismo RC with Nissan VP of Sales and Marketing Brian Carolin.

    BMW ActiveE

    BMW ActiveE BMW's first electric car will cost $499 per month with $2,250 down on a 24 month lease when it hits showrooms this fall. Based on the automaker's 1-Series coupe, the two-door, four-seater will be available in a limited number of markets - including Los Angeles, New York and Boston - where its 100 miles per charge range fits the typical commute. In keeping with the company's Ultimate Driving Machine tradition, the ActiveE is one of the few upcoming electric cars with rear-wheel-drive for sportier handling. In contrast to the tradition, top speed is limited to 90 mph, but it should be pretty quick getting there.

    BMW Z4 sDrive 28i

    2012 BMW Z4 sDrive 28i The car isn't new, but the engine in it is big news, even if it is on the small side. The Z4 SDrive 28i will be the first U.S.-market BMW powered by a 4-cylinder engine in years when it goes on sale this fall. No need to worry, however, as the turbocharged motor produces a healthy 240 hp and should deliver highway fuel economy in the mid-30 mpg range.
