2020 Chevrolet Sonic vs. Its Competition

2020 Chevrolet Sonic
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The Hyundai Accent and Kia Rio are siblings (or maybe, very close cousins), and both offer decent value, good crash test scores, and more modern styling than many competitors in this small segment.

Honda’s Fit lives up to its name, boasting one of the most versatile interiors of any vehicle that can swallow much more cargo than thought possible.

The Mini Cooper satisfies those looking for character over all else but is very expensive in higher-tier forms.

Nissan just redesigned its value-conscious Versa, making it better-looking and more feature-laden than ever.
