The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

7.0
6.8
6.0

TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2022 Honda Civic remains a go-to economy car, with low-key performance and high-economy powertrains. The 2022 Hyundai Elantra excites us with its styling and gas mileage, but loses us with interior quality. The 2022 Volkswagen Jetta packs more standard features for a better compact car value.
