Priced at less than $13,000, including destination, the Aveo5 hatchback is one of the cheapest vehicles available in the United States.
Out of all these competitors, the Nissan Versa drives and feels most like a larger vehicle, in a positive sense, with a smooth, settled ride on the highway, as well as a roomy interior.
Our next favorite would be the Honda Fit because of its sporty driving character, cavernous interior, Magic Seat arrangement, and best-in-class safety.
Base models of the Kia Rio, Hyundai Accent, and Toyota Yaris are in the same price range.
The Rio and Accent (mechanically related to each other) don't feel as roomy.
The Yaris is smaller inside, too.
The Korean pair is much more fun to drive than the Aveo, but they're not as refined because of their stiffer ride and noisier engines.
Nearly all of these vehicles get better fuel economy than the 2009 Chevrolet Aveo.
