TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Chevrolet Sonic gets some safety and feature improvements, and should continue to score big on refinement and driving fun. The 2017 Fiesta drops pro handling moves in ST trim, and 3-cylinders excel at sipping fuel--but all Fiestas have very tight interiors. The 2017 Toyota Yaris iA adds a good sedan to the lineup this year. So good, in fact, we're not sure why the hatchback is around any longer.
