Compact size
Quality interior and trim
Attractive styling

Cons
Narrow, cramped interior
Underpowered base engine
Lacks standard safety tech
Price rises quickly with options

Streamlined trim-level structure.More powerful engine is now optional.The 2019 Buick Encore is a bit more upscale than other subcompact crossovers thanks to its long list of features and the signature silence of Buick interiors.

Pros
Hushed cabin at highway speeds
Generous standard tech and safety features
Maneuverable size

Cons
Base engine delivers tepid performance
Small cargo area

The Ford Focus stands out as the best driver’s car in the class, with handling that truly entertains. It's complemented by a fine ride that almost matches a Volkswagen Golf for comfort and passenger space very nearly on a par with the Skoda Octavia. It's mainly the iffy interior quality and slightly lacklustre performance that mark it down.

Pros
Class-leading handling
Supple ride
Roomy rear seats

Cons
Mediocre performance
Golf is better equipped
Octavia has a much bigger boot

By: 
whatcar.com

Pros
Appealing looks
Value for money
Still great to drive

CONS
No electrified versions
1.0-litre petrol can feel strained
Seating position won't satisfy everyone
