TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Chevrolet HHR is a great urban runabout for small-business owners with frequent cargo hauls. Fun, fun, fun: Kia tries a little Soul on for size, and it fits. The 2009 Scion xB has polarizing looks, a no-haggle dealer experience, and a long safety features list. It provides good value for those on a budget.
