TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Chevrolet Sonic swaps econobox blues for sporty driving feel as well as safety, refinement, and comfort. Small cars don't need to be bland--the 2013 Ford Fiesta proves that with a saucy look and pert handling. The 2013 Mazda2 stands out among entry-level hatchbacks due to its zippy driving feel and good real-world mileage--although the limited feature set and basic appointments won't appeal to everyone.
