Quick Specs
4.8
The 2017 Toyota Prius C is geared toward urban buyers looking for a fuel-efficient, inexpensive runabout—or in other words, a cheap and easy commuter.
6.0
The 2017 Honda Fit gives up some fun-to-drive spunk for unparalleled interior space and flexibility.
4.7
The 2017 Hyundai Accent has a bargain pricetag and lots of space, but its safety scores aren't competitive.
6.5
The 2017 Toyota Prius closes the gap between "driving a hybrid" and "driving a normal car," even though it still looks like nothing else on the road.
4.5
The 2017 Toyota Yaris iA adds a good sedan to the lineup this year. So good, in fact, we're not sure why the hatchback is around any longer.
