The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Chevrolet Sonic is light-years ahead of its Aveo predecessor, which Chevy hopes you'll forget. It's stylish, comfortable, drives nicely, and has excellent safety ratings and infotainment features. As one of the lowest-priced new cars, the 2014 Nissan Versa and Versa Note are best matched up against a slightly upmarket late-model used car; while it's not sporty, it is roomy, with good packaging and lots of available technology.
