The 2015 Honda Civic is a popular and competitive compact sedan with some of the best safety ratings and features in the class.
Its quiet and comfortable ride make it more of a competitor for the Chevrolet Cruze, which also lacks driving excitement.
Civics use to be known for their handling--as is the Ford Focus now, one of our favorites for its stylish interior and excellent blend of sharp handling and comfortable ride.
But today's Civic lacks driving excitement, trading it for comfort and equipment.
The Hyundai Elantra competes heavily on features for the price, but lacks Honda's safety gear and ratings, though it too has good gas-mileage numbers.
The Kia Forte was redesigned last year, with better roadholding and handsome lines, but it didn't do so well on IIHS crash tests.
Finally, the Subaru Impreza offers standard all-wheel drive and the flexibility of not only a sedan model but a hatchback as well.
