The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

7.8
7.6
8.0

TCC’s Bottom Line

Despite its five years largely unchanged, the 2016 Chevrolet Sonic remains stylish and comfortable, and it scores big not only on safety ratings, but also driving fun. The 2016 Fiesta offers fun and features not expected at these prices, but it lacks interior space compared to top rivals. The 2016 Honda Fit isn't as entertaining to drive as it once was, but it's unmatched in safety and space, thanks to the Magic Seat.
