The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.7
6.7
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2020 Honda Civic sets the pace among affordable compact cars. The 2021 Hyundai Elantra compact sedan is hardly small anymore: It has big style, big available tech, and big range from a hybrid powertrain. It’s still among the more mildly flavored mass-market sedans, but the 2020 Toyota Corolla has dropped the bland from its diet.
