The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
5.6
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Toyota Yaris is a recession darling, with cheap running costs, a low price, and a reputation for dependability. 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.
