TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Honda HR-V blends great rear-seat flexibility and gas mileage, but it’s slow. The 2017 Hyundai Veloster is a economy-car cake pop: it sounds like too much, but its hatchback sensibility really does taste better dipped in a layer of quirk. The 2018 Kia Soul puts style ahead of safety features and turbo power.
