The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

7.8
6.3

TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2017 Honda Civic gains a hatchback body this year, but we were already sold. It's a very good compact car. The 2017 Hyundai Veloster is a economy-car cake pop: it sounds like too much, but its hatchback sensibility really does taste better dipped in a layer of quirk.
