The Honda Fit remains the choice vehicle in this class, thanks to its flexible seating arrangement and its smooth four-cylinder engine.
In terms of refinement and safety, it truly is a class ahead.
The Chevrolet Aveo offers two different body styles and a frugal four-cylinder, but it's still not remotely competitive with the class leaders like the Fit or Yaris.
The Yaris has smart style and an enviable reputation behind it, as well as a choice of two- or four-door models.
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.
