The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

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 Toyota Yaris is Toyota's least expensive model, but it doesn't stand out in any particular category.
