2019 Toyota Yaris vs. Its Competition

2019 Toyota Yaris
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

Shoppers in the market for a small car would be wise to check out the versatile Honda Fit.

It’s not as fun as the Yaris sedan, but its interior is Ikea-like in its configurability and good use of space.

The Kia Rio and Hyundai Accent are twins underneath and both boast class-up driving dynamics and reasonable price tags.

The Chevy Sonic comes well-equipped for the money and is available with a zippy turbo, but its price can climb too quickly with options.

Shop the Nissan Versa if a low price is your main motivation—or settle for a lightly used compact car instead.

Quick Specs
4.8
The fun 2019 Toyota Yaris sedan has thankfully outlived its hatchback cousin.
5.0
The 2019 Chevrolet Sonic shows its age but remains a good choice for an inexpensive car with surprising technology.
3.7
The 2019 Ford Fiesta can deliver thrills, but it shows its age in too many ways for us to recommend.
5.8
The 2019 Honda Fit is the spiritual successor to what put Honda on the map: it's small, versatile, and fuel efficient.
5.2
The 2019 Hyundai Accent pleasantly reminds us that four-door sedans used to rule the economy-car roost—and did so for a reason.
3.5
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.
