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

New-car buyers seeking the comforts of a factory warranty can be limited in budget picks. The 2018 Kia Rio does many little things right for not a lot of cash.

Pros
Quieter cabin
Composed ride compared to outgoing model
Cleaner lines, especially on hatchback

Cons
Pricey for its class
Base version isn’t well-equipped
Tapped and sapped at highway speeds
Conservative style
