The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.5
4.7
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 Hyundai Accent has a bargain pricetag and lots of space, but its safety scores aren't competitive.
