The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
5.0
4.2
4.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2019 Chevrolet Sonic shows its age but remains a good choice for an inexpensive car with surprising technology. The 2020 Chevrolet Spark is modern basic motoring: simple features and a low price tag. The 2019 Fiat 500 is appealing for those who value personality above all else, but it sports some glaring flaws.
