Low-buck sport hatches are growing like weeds, or more like it's the 1980's again. Two of the cheapest vehicles were tested by The Car Connection and put through the paces. TCC finds that the Reno better looking inside and out and more comfortable but found the Spectra5 more rewarding to drive. The Spectra5 was better tuned for the "sport" in "sport hatch". The manual shifting felt better and the suspension handled spirited driving better.
