But what do you look for when buying a subcompact car? Is driving fun a main factor when considering which subcompact you want in your garage? Or are price and safety ratings your main concern? What about gas mileage? While all subcompact cars offer plenty of safety equipment and technology, each offers a unique take on what a subcompact should be.
While the Ford Fiesta cranks up the fun-to-drive factor, the Toyota Yaris and the new Nissan Versa take value most seriously. Chevrolet says the Sonic will be fun to drive while still offering great fuel economy, at a slight premium--and Hyundai puts its cards on a big cabin and great execution, not just a rock-bottom price.
