The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.8
6.7
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2022 Honda Civic remains a go-to economy car, with low-key performance and high-economy powertrains. The 2021 Hyundai Elantra has big style, big available tech, and big range from a hybrid powertrain. The 2022 Volkswagen Jetta packs more standard features for a better compact car value.
