The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
7.8
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2012 Honda Civic is a little more spacious, comfortable, and economical, but it's now one of the blandest of the bunch. The 2012 Mitsubishi Lancer family has a little more panache than most compacts, but it's missing some of the finer details. Crisply restyled, with higher gas mileage, more space inside, a nicer interior, and all-wheel drive standard, the 2012 Subaru Impreza is a newly compelling compact alternative.
