The tenth-generation Civic has been out since 2016, and for 2019, Honda makes only minor tweaks to this compact car's winning formula of style, value, and performance. Lots of cars are...

Power Ranked 2018 Honda Accord 2.0T Sport FWD better.
"The 2.0T is noticeably more powerful, although the 1.5T in the civic is definitely adequate. I much prefer the 10-speed auto in the 2-liter accord vs the CVT in the 1.5-liter accords and civic."

Looks/Style Ranked 2019 Mazda MAZDA3 better.
"Cleaner design, does not have ugly Honda chrome bar and the huge fake vents that only Honda designers seem to love."
Would Buy Ranked 2019 Mazda MAZDA3 better.
"It just looks so much better both exterior and interior wise."

Power Ranked 2003 Toyota Avalon worse.
"Its a little smaller and lighter and the 4 cly is adequate with the right transmission and the 6 can be close to Avalon power with a lighter car for it to accelerate."
Front Seats Ranked 2003 Toyota Avalon worse.
"Personal preference - size and shape. A few Avalon s came with a 3 passenger old school bench. Most Avalons have normal 2 front buckets, more often leather with many power adjustments though certain Auras have that too and ones without it are pretty good and comfortable for a normal size driver."
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2003 Toyota Avalon better.
"Avalon has a huge backseat and trunk though an Auru is an ok average size in both those for most drivers."
Would Buy Ranked 2003 Toyota Avalon better.
"I am a little bit less of a risk taker and all things otherwise equal ( previous owners maintanance) most Models and Years Toyotas are the lowest risk of any cars for long term reliability and low ownership lifetime costs."
