The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

8.8
7.8

TCC’s Bottom Line

Even without considering the top-performance ST, the 2014 Ford Focus is one of the best-driving small cars on the market--with the impression of being an accessible premium car, not a spruced-up econobox. The 2015 Honda Civic is refined, comfortable, and offers top-notch safety ratings and features.
