TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Ford Focus is irony on wheels: it comes in a dizzying range of models, of which the SEL and ST are our picks. The 2018 Honda Civic is a good car made better by plenty of options and value at nearly every stop. The 2018 Hyundai Elantra adds a versatile hatchback to the fold and makes a more compelling case as a compact contender in a value-packed segment.
