2018 Honda Civic Sedan

  • Prices start around $18,940 (MSRP excluding tax, license, destination charge, and options)

  • Editors weren't impressed with a lack of physical volume knobs on the infotainment system
  • Overall, they thought it was a fun-to-drive car that was spacious and reliable

2018 Toyota Corolla Compact Car

  • Prices start around $18,600
