The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.8
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Honda Civic drops almost all the economy-car pretense; in Touring trim, it could easily wear a premium label. Not quite a hot hatch, the 2016 Hyundai Elantra GT gives up some rear-seat space in the name of cargo room and European style.
