What other cars should you study before you buy a Hyundai Accent? Well, there’s the Kia Rio, a mechanical twin to the Accent that lacks a fair amount of equipment when compared model to model.
The Chevy Sonic has been something of a driver’s car in this segment, as has the Ford Fiesta, but compromises abound, especially inside the Fiesta’s borderline inhospitable interior.
Still, a Fiesta ST? Sign us up—but do it quickly, since the Fiesta’s almost done with its U.S.
The Toyota Yaris is dismal as a hatch but much better as a sedan, even though it’s plenty pricey.
The Nissan Versa likely will be the most affordable new car in America this year, although we’d hardly recommend anyone taking them up on that offer.
The Honda Fit is our pick in the small-car niche because it drives well enough and doubles as a pint-sized minivan, thanks to its flip-up, fold-down rear seats.
