The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.8
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Toyota Yaris is built for city commuting, but on highways it reveals some major weak spots. 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.
