The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.0
6.2
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 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. The 2016 Nissan Versa sedan and Versa Note hatchback are no-frills transportation with plenty of space, but poor safety and performance ratings.
