The 2018 Subaru Legacy may be the best mid-size sedan that buyers largely miss. It skips performance for a good safety record and relative value—not bad things.

Pros
Sparkling safety scorecard
Better interior materials
All-wheel-drive confidence
Comfortable interior
Relatively good value

Cons
Average performance
Thirsty optional engine
Plain exterior
Extra-cost advanced safety

Revised for 2018, the Subaru Legacy has freshened front and rear styling, higher-quality interior materials, a larger 6.5-inch standard display with smartphone integration, and a more powerful air-conditioning system. Subaru says it's also retuned the Legacy for smoother acceleration, a more comfortable ride quality, sportier steering feel, and reduced wind and road noise at highway speeds.

PROS
Standard all-wheel drive for extra wet-weather traction
Excellent outward visibility
Easy-to-use infotainment systems

CONS
Engines down on power compared to competitors

It’s still among the more mildly flavored mass-market sedans, but the 2020 Toyota Corolla has dropped the bland from its diet.

Pros
More entertaining to drive
New engine, more power
Sportier look that’s more restrained
Well-executed infotainment, with Apple CarPlay

Cons
Cramped rear seat
More cargo space wouldn’t hurt
It’s sportier, but not necessarily sporty
Needs less noise

The 2020 Toyota Corolla ranked #5 in Compact Cars. Currently the Toyota Corolla has a score of 8.2 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 21 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Outstanding predicted reliability rating
Great fuel economy
Lots of active safety features

Cons
Sluggish base engine
Inconsistent transmission performance
Cramped rear seat in hatchback model

By: 
usnews.com

While Toyota completely redesigned the Corolla hatchback for 2019, the version with a trunk arrives a year later as the all-new 2020 Corolla sedan. Along with a much improved interior and better looking exterior, the Corolla lineup adds a hybrid model for the first time. Both body styles are also now built on Toyota's New Global Architecture (TNGA), which underpins the highly popular Toyota Camry and the even more popular Toyota RAV4.

Pros
Wonderful fuel economy, sedan's roomy back seat, standard driver assists.

Cons
Coarse engine noise, unexciting to drive, hatchback's reduced practicality.
