The Car Connection's Take

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 2020 Kia Rio is a small car with a quality feel. The 2020 Mini Cooper is a fun and funky small hatchback that trades practicality and value for character and quality.
