The 2019 Hyundai Elantra delivers good handling and a lot of value for the money.

Pros

Good value for money
Strong turbo engines
Elantra GT’s space and pace

Variety and value are the main ingredients in the 2019 Hyundai Elantra's appeal. Three available engines and six configurations mean it's easy to find an Elantra to suit your needs, whether that's you're focused on fuel economy or just something fun to drive. As for value, the Elantra doesn't deal in subtlety.

Pros
Offers broad range of technology and safety features
Comfortable ride
Quiet cabin with simple, intuitive controls
Offers one of the best warranties in its segment

Cons
Seven-speed automatic can be clunky at low speeds
Lackluster performance from base 2.0-liter engine

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
