TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2020 Chevrolet Sonic looks and drives younger than its age, and still offers value and a pinch of fun. The 2019 Fiat 500 is appealing for those who value personality above all else, but it sports some glaring flaws. The 2020 Mini Cooper is a fun and funky small hatchback that trades practicality and value for character and quality.
