The 2020 Nissan Sentra competes with compact sedans and hatchbacks that all seem to be getting larger and offered with more sport and style than their budget-car past.
The Honda Civic comes in three body styles, has sportier variants in the Si and Type R, and generally leads the class in interior spaciousness, standard features, and the fun to drive factor.
Redesigned for 2019, the Mazda 3 offers sporty handling and a more refined, upscale interior in sedan and hatchback form.
Also redesigned for 2019, the Volkswagen Jetta sedan does everything well if not particularly noteworthy.
The 2020 Hyundai Elantra affirms that value and quality can coexist, and is the most inexpensive and most efficient of the group.
As a sedan, hatch, or hybrid, the Toyota Corolla is long on reliability and value, and the hatchback gives it a much-needed visual edge.
