TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Honda Civic brings better refinement back to the lineup, but there's more to come, we're told. The 2014 Kia Forte finds better focus with well-rounded performance and grabby good looks, but its safety scores concern us. The 2014 Subaru Impreza remains the only option in its class to come equipped with standard all-wheel-drive, where many don't offer it all. It's tough, practical, and looks good, too.
