TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2019 Chevrolet Sonic shows its age but remains a good choice for an inexpensive car with surprising technology. The 2019 Honda Fit is the spiritual successor to what put Honda on the map: it's small, versatile, and fuel efficient. The 2019 Kia Rio gives used cars a run for their money with its great warranty, good ride, safety tech, and spacious interior.
