The Honda Civic spans a broad range of powertrains and body configurations, and most rank highly among their respective competitors thanks to their powertrains and space.
The new Civic is more spacious than the Corolla and likely more efficient with fuel, although it may cost more.
The Chevy Cruze is available in a hatchback and with a diesel engine, but its price far exceeds the Corolla.
The Focus is old and on its way out the door with a crossover replacement due next year, but it’s often discounted and is fun to drive.
The Elantra and Mazda3 are both entertaining to drive, although the Mazda has a better interior and the Elantra has a better turbo powertrain than the Corolla.
A new Mazda3 arrives late in the model year.
