2019 Ford Fiesta vs. Its Competition

2019 Ford Fiesta
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

Among subcompact cars, the Toyota Yaris sedan delivers good handling and a lot of features for the money.

The Chevrolet Sonic has a composed, high quality feel, with good infotainment.

Hyundai and Kia’s Accent and Rio share underpinnings and much of their tech, making them must-see small cars.

The Nissan Versa trades on its ultra-low price, but the old adage applies: you get what you pay for.

Quick Specs
The 2019 Ford Fiesta can deliver thrills, but it shows its age in too many ways for us to recommend.
The 2019 Chevrolet Sonic shows its age but remains a good choice for an inexpensive car with surprising technology.
The 2019 Hyundai Accent pleasantly reminds us that four-door sedans used to rule the economy-car roost—and did so for a reason.
The 2019 Nissan Versa is the cheapest way to get new-car smell and a full warranty, but rivals deliver plenty for not much more.
The fun 2019 Toyota Yaris sedan has thankfully outlived its hatchback cousin.
The 2018 Toyota Yaris is two cars: a fun-to-drive sedan called the "iA," and a hatchback relic that's hard to recommend. Four doors=four thumbs up.
