TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Honda Civic is refined, comfortable, and offers top-notch safety ratings and features. Between base, e-Golf electric, and high-performance GTI and Golf R versions, the 2016 Volkswagen Golf lineup doesn't forget about the space-and-versatility fundamentals of hatchback—or SportWagen—ownership.
