The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
5.0
5.2
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 Hyundai Accent pleasantly reminds us that four-door sedans used to rule the economy-car roost—and did so for a reason.
