The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.3
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Ford Focus has great road manners and scorching high-performance editions, but it's compromised by a small back seat. The 2017 Honda Civic gains a hatchback body this year, but we were already sold. It's a very good compact car.
