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 ...

Andrew Newton Preview:

The second generation Chevy Volt has been available in all 50 states since the beginning of 2016, and its main appeal is that it has all the appeal of a full EV but also has the option...

Good variant of the Civic. Nice design, decent power, and the best part is that Si is only available in manua...
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. "

I owned the Chevy Volt . Drove it 6700 miles, loved the power and styling. Did not like manual adjust seats.
Front Seats Ranked 2018 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid FWD better.
"The driver seat is 8 way power, it has a memory and readjusts for that driver. The passenger seat is also power adjust. Both seats are wide and comfortable."
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2018 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid FWD better.
"Trunk is deeper and also wider than the Volt. Easy to show, as I transferred my fitted cargo mat from my old Volt to the new 2018 Clarity PHEV. The fitted mat don’t cover the larger floor space."
