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 Nissan Versa is the cheapest way to get new-car smell and a full warranty, but rivals deliver plenty for not much more. The fun 2019 Toyota Yaris sedan has thankfully outlived its hatchback cousin.
