The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.3
7.2
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 Toyota Corolla takes a well-deserved bow this year for 50 years of drama-free commuting. This model is entirely acceptable, and we're thankful for an available suite of advanced safety tech.
