Both the Honda Fit and Ford Fiesta offer a lot more driving enjoyment in an otherwise comparable package.
Against the Note, the Fit stands out especially for its very low cargo floor and a seat-folding arrangement that's better than all others in this class; it's also been redesigned for 2015 with a more refined ride and more features.
The Ford Fiesta is the fun-to-drive champion of the class, and it looks very refined and nicely detailed inside and out; on the downside, it's not nearly as space-efficient.
The Hyundai Accent impresses as a little more upscale—mainly because its switchgear and trims are a step above.
The Chevrolet Sonic is far more refined, with a better ride than the Versa plus better interior comfort and top-notch safety; it feels like a significantly more expensive car, even though it doesn't cost all that much more.
While the latest Toyota Yaris is attractive inside and out from a design standpoint, it's not a standout in other respects.
