2023 Toyota Corolla vs. Its Competition

2023 Toyota Corolla
Robert Duffer Robert Duffer Senior Editor

The redesigned Civic reinvigorated the Honda lineup with a larger footprint, roomier interior, and more mature styling, as well as sedan, hatchback, Si and Type R models.

Hyundai buffed up the 2022 Elantra as well and fitted it with an N performance variant, though the styling tries too hard to express that it is something more than a compact sedan.

The Mazda 3 sedan and hatch extend into the premium class more gracefully and expensively, but it offers great power, handling, and optional all-wheel drive.

A Subaru Impreza makes a great choice for drivers who regularly encounter snow or gravel, but don’t want the ovoid proportions of the Crosstrek.

The refreshed Kia Forte impresses as a budget thriller in some configurations.
