Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The WRX might be one of the quickest and most powerful sport compacts available for less than $30,000, but it’s also one of the least civil. A loud cabin, a stiff-legged ride, and a laggy turbocharged engine are some of the WRX’s surlier traits—a legacy of its rally-car roots. Its infotainment system is antiquated, and its interior is drab.

Pros
All-wheel-drive confidence,
powerful turbocharged engine,
great visibility.

Cons
Noisy cabin,
jiggly ride,
no Apple CarPlay or Android Auto.

The 2018 Subaru WRX looks tame compared to its newest rivals. Step on the gas and you’ll be convinced otherwise.

Pros
Captivating performance
Better sound deadening
Good safety scorecard
Bright, large touchscreen for infotainment
Restrained looks compared to others…

Cons
…that border on boring
Advanced safety options are pricey
No hatchback version anymore
Not very fuel-efficient

The WRX receives a handful of useful changes for 2018, including an updated front-end design, revised suspension and steering tuning, and thicker glass, seals and insulation aimed at better suppressing road noise. Subaru also adds a few new features to its EyeSight safety package.

PROS
In both WRX and WRX STI, acceleration is swift and among best-in-class
Delivers superb handling and steering response on twisting roads
Full-time all-wheel drive enhances traction and performance
Offers several premium safety equipment options

CONS
STI's high-performance suspension makes for a rough ride
Interior quality lags behind competitors
Above-average amounts of wind and road noise

The 2018 Hyundai Accent clouds the new-or-used question, but only in well-equipped Limited trim.

Pros
City-street nimble
Pretty, if not distinctive
Well-equipped as a Limited
Quieter cabin

Cons
No more hatchback
No AEB on SE or SEL
Full-throttle noise
Gas mileage isn’t tops in class

By: 
thecarconnection.com

No need for excuses here: The Accent, with its distinctive design and fuel-sipping engine, is a fine choice for an economical car. The interior feels more upscale than that of the competition, but the Accent is available only as a sedan. Its 130-hp 1.6-liter inline-four pairs with either a standard perky six-speed manual or an optional sluggish six-speed automatic.

Pros
Mature design,
nicely equipped,
overall sophistication.

Cons
Modest fuel economy,
sluggish automatic,
weaker value than the base model.

The 2018 Hyundai Accent is all-new. It rides atop a new chassis that is a half-inch longer than before, yielding slightly more interior space and passenger room. Increased use of high-strength steel in the frame and the body promises improved handling dynamics, and the revised four-cylinder engine delivers better fuel economy.

PROS
Comfortable ride and impressively quiet cabin
Spacious interior is upscale for the segment
Long warranty coverage provides peace of mind
Fuel efficiency is more competitive

CONS
Enhanced safety aids only available on top trim level
Lacks in-dash navigation but connects to smartphone nav apps
