Great fuel economy
Less expensive than class rivals

Cons

By:

The 2018 Acura ILX is an acceptable entry-level luxury car, but a loaded-up mainstream model like the Honda Civic delivers more features and refinements for less money.

Pros
Rev-happy engine
Excellent transmission
Good safety features
Luxury-level cachet

Cons
Based on the old Honda Civic
Interior space compromised
Not exactly upscale interior
Bland looks

By: 
thecarconnection.com

Pros
Handling
Engine power
Contemporary styling
Clean interior layout
Folding backseat
Available safety systems

Cons
Tight headroom front and rear
Lots of road and engine noise
Transmission quick to upshift at low speeds
No all-wheel-drive option

By:

For 2018, the Lexus IS 300 gains a four-cylinder and rear-wheel-drive version in its lineup. In actuality, though, this is just last year's IS 200t renamed. The all-wheel-drive version still has a V6 engine, and it gets a 5-horsepower boost (to 260 hp).

PROS
Ride quality is smooth and comfortable on bumpy roads
Cabin is well-isolated from noise
Offers more features for the money compared to German alternatives

CONS
Optional Remote Touch infotainment system is distracting to use
V6 power compares to smaller turbo engines, but isn't as efficient
Handling capabilities do little to create driver excitement

Subtle, stylish look
Swift-shifting 8-speed
Long options list
F Sport headed in the right direction
