The 2019 Chevrolet Sonic shows its age but remains a good choice for an inexpensive car with surprising technology.

Pros
Comfortable interior
Smooth turbo-4
Quiet interior
Ample cargo utility

Cons
Gutless base engine
Tight rear seat
Sonic LS far from lavish
Buyers want SUVs

Subcompacts aren't a particularly exciting class. They prioritize form over function, and they need to pack a lot of capability for the size. Pound for pound, this class of vehicle simply has to do more than most. Does the 2019 Chevrolet Sonic deliver the goods?

Pros
Engine makes good power
Spacious cabin for the class
Standard infotainment system supports full smartphone integration
Excellent crash test scores

Cons
Competitors get better fuel economy
Cabin materials look and feel low-rent
