The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.4
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Chevy Cruze is comfortable and practical--and now it offers a diesel engine that can return 40 mpg in real-world use. Civic who? Corolla what? The Hyundai Elantra's one of the new standard bearers in the compact class, with 38-mpg fuel economy, better safety, and class-leading standard features. The 2014 Toyota Corolla keeps its frugal, responsible core but adds a lot more verve.
