The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.8
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Toyota Yaris is Toyota's least expensive model, but it doesn't stand out in any particular category. Despite its five years largely unchanged, the 2016 Chevrolet Sonic remains stylish and comfortable, and it scores big not only on safety ratings, but also driving fun.
