The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Chevrolet Sonic is light-years ahead of its Aveo predecessor, which Chevy hopes you'll forget. It's stylish, comfortable, drives nicely, and has excellent safety ratings and infotainment features. If you're looking for a two-seat hybrid hatchback coupe, the 2014 Honda CR-Z is your only choice--but many other small cars offer more driving fun, or higher fuel efficiency, often at equal cost.
