TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2015 Dodge Dart brings back some of the Neon's personality with all of the modern features you could want in a compact car. The 2015 Ford Focus lineup gets a clean new look for 2015, as well as a high-mileage three-cylinder engine option and revamped cabin comforts. From efficiency-minded models to the high-performance ST, it remains one of the best-driving small cars on the market.
