The 2015 Dodge Dart is a stylish, tech-filled choice among cars that are ostensibly designed to save money and fuel.
The Hyundai Elantra earns high marks for value, style, and overall popularity–dealers can't seem to keep them on their lots.
The Toyota Corolla was redesigned last year, making it considerably more attractive than past models, although the underlying mechanicals carried over and it drives about the same.
The Honda Civic gets decent fuel economy and comes with much-improved interior after last year's update.
The Ford Focus feels upscale compared to the others, and it drives and handles well, too.
That all comes at a cost, though, since the Focus can touch $30,000 with its most-equipped models.
Finally, the Chevrolet Cruze is a handsome, solid performer offered with efficient turbocharged four-cylinder gas or diesel engines and one of the quietest rides in the segment.
