I'd be down for a comparo between the other cars you listed.
My mistake. Until the RS made its debut the LTZ was the highest trim level in the Sonic's lineup. Maybe if there's enough feedback GM will consider making a SS trim for the Sonic but until then, I guess the RS will have to do.

As for the Abarth and the Fiesta ST being in different classes,while that it's true if we were in Europe they would be. The thing is-we're not in Europe and as such,both the Abarth and the Fiesta ST would be considered subcompacts here in North America.
