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 Toyota Corolla takes a well-deserved bow this year for 50 years of drama-free commuting. This model is entirely acceptable, and we're thankful for an available suite of advanced safety tech.
