For 2018, Honda has tinkered with the availability of certain features. Overall, though, the Civic is unchanged.For mainstream Civic buyers, we think the extra power and fuel economy of the turbocharged 1.5-liter engine make it one of the Civic's best options.

PROS
Excellent fuel economy and performance from turbocharged engines
Ride quality expertly balances comfort and athleticism
Many available advanced technology and safety features
Roomy cabin with high-quality materials

CONS
Slow-responding adaptive cruise control system
Overly vigilant forward collision warning system is frustrating
Touchscreen interface is confusing and slow to respond to inputs

The 2018 Buick LaCrosse is a proper flagship, a refined and comfortable sedan with only a few quirks.

Pros
Elegant styling inside and out
Good infotainment system
Silent cruiser
New mild-hybrid is relatively thrifty

Cons
Advanced safety tech is pricey
Odd trim level walk
Not as roomy inside as its size would suggest
Expensive when fully loaded

A new base engine debuts for 2018. Dubbed eAssist, it features a small electric motor and battery in addition to a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine. The result is exceptional fuel economy for a large sedan. The V6 engine also gets a new nine-speed automatic transmission, and all-wheel-drive availability is extended to the Essence trim level.

PROS
Comfortable and composed ride on rough roads
Quiet and genuinely luxurious interior
Surprisingly adept handling with Dynamic Drive package
Good fuel economy

CONS
Questionable price jump from base trim level to Preferred
Low-mounted seats front and back may limit comfort
