Domestic competitors have largely walked away from small cars like the Civic, what’s left is good though.
The Corolla is significantly updated for 2020 and offers a sedan and hatchback.
Like the Civic, it’s a good value and should be high on any shopper’s list.
The Mazda3 is the most entertaining to drive, but its hatch won’t be for everyone.
The Kia Forte and Hyundai Elantra are similarly good values, we wouldn’t hesitate with either.
The Volkswagen Jetta is sedan-only and sturdy, although a little boring.
