TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Honda Civic takes a step back in the right direction with an impressive feature set, a sophisticated new look, and much-improved refinement. It's a family affair: the Kia Forte lineup is more comfortable, more eager, and better finished than ever, and a step up from what its sticker price might suggest. Not quite fast, and not quite nimble, the latest Scion tC is on its way to developing an interesting personality.
