Which economy car models do you recommend?

I’m looking to buy something that offers good performance and durability despite the low price tag.

“Toyota and Honda are known for making reliable and fuel-efficient economy cars. The manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) for cars such as the Toyota Corolla, Toyota Prius, and Honda Insight typically start under $20,000.
The Corolla has the cheapest starting price, offers good performance, and gets good gas mileage. However, the Insight and Prius offer the best fuel economy.
