2. Chevrolet Sonic
It used to be that Chevrolet struggled when it came to small cars, but that all changed with the Sonic. Since its introduction the car has been a runaway hit, thanks to a high-quality interior and plenty of standard features that outshine the competition. These include automatic headlights, integrated blind-spot mirrors, Bluetooth phone connectivity, keyless entry, and GM’s OnStar emergency communications system. The Sonic is also fun to throw around city streets or even take on twisty country back roads. The base price is merely $14,957, which seems like a steal for what you get. As if that were not enough, the Sonic also scored a perfect five stars overall on the NHTSA crash tests.
