TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 Chevrolet HHR stands out with its retro exterior, but it's lackluster in most other respects. The 2011 Kia Soul is fashion-forward and fun-to-drive—and unlike most of its urban-wagon rivals, it's just as practical as it looks. Whether you see the 2011 Scion xB as trendy or odd, it packs a lot of space and versatility into a compact space.
