The Kia Rio is essentially the same car as the Hyundai Accent, but it's also offered in a Rio5 wagon format where the Accent offers a three-door coupe.
The Toyota Yaris has smart style and an enviable reputation behind it, as well as a choice of two- or four-door models.
The Chevrolet Aveo also offers two different body styles and a frugal four-cylinder--and like the Kia and Hyundai, it's built in South Korea, where car quality has quickly matched that coming from the Japanese car companies.
The Honda Fit remains the choice vehicle in this class, thanks to its flexible seating arrangement and its smooth four-cylinder engine.
