TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Honda HR-V smartly trades a little of the Fit's fuel economy for exuberant styling, more headroom, and optional all-wheel drive. The 2016 Hyundai Veloster is a tough one to classify, but it is what it appears: part sports coupe, part sensible hot hatch, and a lot of quirky. The affordable, practical 2016 Kia Soul has a boxy style that fits right into urban environments, yet fits a lot inside.
