The 2024 Honda Civic is more mature than previous generations, but it still drives well and offers good value, notably in safety, albeit many of its best features are reserved for higher-spec variants.

The affordable 2024 Toyota Corolla comes in sedan or hatchback body styles and offers strong safety and interior space ratings.
