The Car Connection's Take

7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Volkswagen Golf and GTI trade flashy looks for great interior and cargo space, especially in the SportWagen model—but they don't give up anything for driving fun. The 2015 Honda Civic is refined, comfortable, and offers top-notch safety ratings and features.
