The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
5.8
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Chevrolet Aveo has a bargain-basement price, and with the exception of good interior comfort, you get what you pay for. The 2008 Honda Fit is one of the smallest cars on the road, but it’s fun to drive, huge inside, and a tremendous value.
