“The well-rounded Sonic is one of the most fun-to-drive and most comfortable subcompact cars out there. Available in sedan and hatchback flavors, the Sonic was also one of the first cars to offer next-level iPhone integration via Siri Eyes Free. As a bonus, it’s also the most affordable car on this list.”
Last year they awarded it 3rd place overall with the following to say about it:
“Available as a sedan or hatchback, the Sonic is a surprisingly exciting subcompact whose price starts a hair under $15,000. We also appreciate that the Sonic brings sensibility with its style, boasting 10 airbags for the safety-minded and impressive fuel economy that reaches 40 mpg.”
And back in 2012, when it debuted, it was rated at #3 as well and celebrated for it’s sporty design, interior space, cool name, visibility, ease to drive, vibrant colors, and great fuel economy.
