With an even sportier driving feel, better crash-test scores, and good fuel economy—plus the best folding rear seat in the segment—the Honda Fit is the forerunner.
The Toyota Yaris, especially as a hatchback, is a stylish conveyance and now comes with standard electronic stability control and anti-lock brakes.
Then there’s the Hyundai Accent, which is closely related to the Rio four-door; the Accent also comes as a two-door hatchback, like the Yaris.
The Chevrolet Aveo is another rival, but it fails to hit the mark in so many ways and doesn’t offer an especially strong seat of features or a lower price than the rest.
