The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.6
7.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Honda Civic has a level of sophistication and refinement not possessed by most other small car models, with good safety and overall frugality. But if you like to carry cargo or backseat passengers, you can do better. The 2008 Ford Focus isn’t all new, but it is an improvement, and a solid choice if you’re looking for a roomy car that handles well with a base price that starts around $15,000.
