The Hyundai Accent and Kia Rio are essentially the same car underneath, and both are solid, high-quality choices with a low price tag, good fuel economy, and remarkable refinement.
We’d feel good about parking either in our garage.
So too the latest Nissan Versa, which erases every memory we had about its predecessor thanks to sharp styling and good rood manners.
The Chevy Spark is fun and surprisingly polished, but its lack of collision-avoidance gear is inexcusable at this point.
Realistically, though, just about any compact car with a few miles under its belt sitting in your local dealer’s certified pre-owned lot will be worth a look.
