The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
6.8
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. Sadly, the 2014 Scion xD is less fun to drive than to look at, though it's spacious for its size.
