TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Chevrolet Sonic remains a good choice among subcompacts, though it’s now aging and losing some luster. The teensy 2018 Ford Fiesta lives its best life as a scintillating turbo-4 ST. The 2018 Toyota Yaris is two cars: a fun-to-drive sedan called the "iA," and a hatchback relic that's hard to recommend. Four doors=four thumbs up.
