I am starting the process of moving to California. Part of my plan once I have set up shop there is to buy a smaller car. With gas prices being so high there and the roads being more narrow (or at least they seem more narrow to me having lived in Virginia for most of my life) I am wanting something that is smaller and easier to handle. In my research I came across an article on US News that ranks the top 40 small affordable cars. I took the information in this article and summarized it in the info graphic above. I just looked at the top ten.
