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 Ford Fiesta can deliver thrills, but it shows its age in too many ways for us to recommend. The 2020 Hyundai Accent is about as basic as new cars get, and that’s where its appeal lies.
