TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Chevrolet Sonic is comfortable, stylish, safe, and drives well, and almost completely blots out our memory of a much worse Chevy Aveo from the past. The 2015 Honda Fit might not up the ante in sportiness, but it offers up exactly what urban small-car shoppers want in safety and convenience features—and it's still as good as some utility vehicles or vans with its wondrous, unmatched Magic Seat setup. The 2015 Nissan Versa sedan and Versa Note hatchback are as about as inexpensive and no-frills as new cars get today. Spacious interiors and and decent ride comfort are their strong points, and they're best matched up against slightly upmarket, late-model used cars.
