TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2019 Chevy Bolt EV electric hatchback started a trend that others are only now catching up to. The 2019 Chevrolet Volt is a solid plug-in hybrid choice thanks to its long overall range and comfortable, high-quality feel. The 2019 Kia Niro is an efficiency-first hatchback with a secret: it’s also a good family car.
