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 Honda Fit gives up some fun-to-drive spunk for unparalleled interior space and flexibility. No frills transportation still exists in the Nissan Versa, but it might be just the ticket for those on a budget looking for an urban runabout.
