2017 Honda Civic

$18,740 | U.S. News Score: 8.8/10

The Honda Civic, one of our highly ranked compact cars, earns praise for its dynamic handling, athletic performance, and fuel economy, delivering 32 mpg around town and 42 mpg in the city – better than even the Elantra’s Eco trim.

The Civic also has a more powerful standard engine that makes 158 horsepower to the Elantra’s 147. But the Elantra’s Sport model surpasses the highest-performing Civic, delivering 201 horsepower compared with the Civic Sport Touring trim’s 180 ponies.

Unlike the Elantra, the Civic is also available as a coupe, as well as a sedan or hatchback. The Civic comes with an option to add the Honda Sensing suite of advanced driver assistance technology – including lane departure warning and lane keep assist – for less than you’d pay to equip an Elantra with comparable features.
