The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
5.2
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 Nissan Sentra spiffs up its performance in SR Turbo trim, but it's still more a need-to-buy than an want-to-buy car.
