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. We miss the brash, buzzy looks, for sure—but the 2017 Hyundai Elantra is now one of the most refined economy cars on the road.
