TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 Chevrolet Aveo is vastly improved from first glance; we'll reserve final judgement until road-test cars are made available. The 2011 Mazda2 is fun to drive in a way that few other inexpensive econocars are. The 2011 Toyota Yaris is a great city car for cost-conscious commuters, though those who expect a top-notch list of connectivity features will be disappointed.
