The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

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. The 2016 Mitsubishi Lancer shows its 10 years of age, with a noisy ride and a low-quality interior, which will limit shoppers' interest unless value for money trumps all. The 2016 Subaru Impreza is the compact car to choose when you require all-wheel drive for year-round traction but don't want or need the gas-mileage hit that comes with boxy SUVs and rugged trail ability.
