Clifford Atiyeh Test Drive Review:

While American sedans have come and gone, the Honda Accord has kept a singular purpose (and the same name) for 42 straight years. It’s reliable, roomy, efficient, and unpretentious. Ye...

Kyree Williams Preview:

The classic Honda Civic is easily one of the most important cars on the market, so when Honda released a downgraded version in 2012, the company disappointed buys as competitor models ...

Front Seats Ranked 2015 Ford F-150 Platinum SuperCrew 4WD worse.
"Leather feels premium and the seats are softer. The sides hug your body."
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2015 Ford F-150 Platinum SuperCrew 4WD better.
"Truck has lots of cargo space since that is what is meant to carry."

Family Car Ranked 2017 Ford Fusion Platinum AWD better.

Power Ranked 2018 Toyota Camry XLE V6 worse.
"252 HP seems not much till the moment you floor the gas pedal, is more than enough and when in Sport the sound of the engine is just great. "
Looks/Style Ranked 2018 Toyota Camry XLE V6 worse.
"No fake 4 pipes, just two but the shape of the car from any side is just beautiful only the front needs some improvement but the side and the back view are not only sporty but elegant as well"
Front Seats Ranked 2018 Toyota Avalon Limited worse.
"Better back support, more leg room"
Family Car Ranked 2018 Toyota Avalon Limited better.
"Easier to get into it on out, more quiet and more settled drive"

Power Ranked 2018 Subaru BRZ Limited RWD better.
"RWD delivery, 50/50 front rear weight distribution, and low mounted engine combined make the BRZ feel more responsive. "
Handling Ranked 2018 Subaru BRZ Limited RWD better.
"See above. "
Looks/Style Ranked 2018 Subaru BRZ Limited RWD better.
"The BRZ is designed as its own platform, with classic sports car styling (longish hood, beefy rear fenders, no-nonsense interior). The Si is nice, but because its shared with its lesser Civic stablemates, feels less special as a sports car than the BRZ. "
Front Seats Ranked 2018 Subaru BRZ Limited RWD better.
"The BRZ Limited offers leather + suede look seats, well bolstered. While the Sis seats are OK, no leather option did not sit well with me (pun intended). "
Back Seats Ranked 2018 Subaru BRZ Limited RWD worse.
"The Si has usable back seats; the BRZs are for packages or people you dislike only. "
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2018 Subaru BRZ Limited RWD worse.
"Si comes in hatch variant with offers greater cargo options vs. BRZ."
Family Car Ranked 2018 Subaru BRZ Limited RWD worse.
"Functional rear seats and great platform overall. "
Would Buy Ranked 2018 Subaru BRZ Limited RWD better.
"I did buy the BRZ over the Si because it felt more special since it was designed as an affordable sports car, period. No shared platform with lesser models. Also, its reliability rating in Consumer Reports was superior to the Hondas. "

"definitely more room in the trunk which is great if you have a family and your kids play sports or if you like taking road trips. but i would rather take a long road trip in the camry. "
Family Car Ranked 2018 Toyota Camry SE better.
"feels like a lot more upgrades are available on the Camry thats not available on the civic"
