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 2019 Volkswagen Jetta is a mild-mannered, well-equipped compact sedan.

Pros
Docile personality
High-tech options
Good safety gear
Styling will age well

Cons
Docile personality
Breaks little new ground
Conservative, almost to a fault
Unsupportive front seats

The 2019 Jetta is marginally bigger than the old car, continuing a trend that has seen the Jetta grow to roughly the size of the fondly remembered B5-generation 1997–2005 Passat. The Jetta’s wheelbase has been stretched 1.3 inches to 105.7 inches, which helps the car maintain its proportions even with an overall length that has grown to 185.1 inches.

Pros
Classy interior,
responsive 1.4-liter turbo,
slick manual available.

Cons
Mute steering,
smaller trunk,
no GLI at launch.
