It's depend on your region (country) in my country Atmel's 8051 is the cheapest but its has no integrated stuff like AVR (internal ADC, TWI, EEPROM, etc). So i now migrate from 8051 to AVR.

Without getting pricing support from Atmel, then the best way to a gauge a reasonable price is to look at one of the large international distributors, Digikey for instance. That will give you a starting point for 100 pricing. You should then be able to get a better price from your local distributor, assuming you are going to order at least 100 parts.
As to if it is the cheapest MCU, well that depends on how well it fits your application. If you can use a cheaper MCU ,but it needs more external 'bits' to achieve the same functions, then you are probably better off with the  ore integrated solution.
If you are going to build lots of these(1000's), then the pricing becomes more crucial, and Atmel, (and microchip and TI etc) will suddenly become more interested in you and 'pricing support' comes into action; ie the price drops  to secure the business.
The price of the MCU is not as important as considering the cost of the whole BOM, including assembly and test. One chip that does not need lots of 'glue' around it can work out cheaper in the long run as assembly and test will be easier.
