Anything you'd go for if not Corolla and why? Starting the process and trying to get a sense of choices. Thinking that y'all will know the lay of the land. I'm in U.S. Thanks.
I'll give an actual answer, not a non-answer.I'm seriously at the very beginning. Are they different enough to serve different wants? Can you give me an example please?
Agreed but also avoid Hyundai poor resale and poor reliability. Also the interior feel is cheap. Honda 1.5 is deadly avoid at all cost ..I'll give an actual answer, not a non-answer.
Toyota: Reliablity, resale, fuel economy and fairly good driving dynamics.
Mazda: Premium feel inside, used to be class leading handling but not anymore apparently.
Elantra: Tons of tech for low price
Civic: Best handing IMO, good reliability with the 2.0 (Avoid the 1.5T)
Sentra: I'd just avoid Nissan IMO.
Hyundai owns Kia you get a lot for your money don't let me tell you not to get one but reliability has yet to be proven and they don't hold resale value.What about Kia Optima, if it's considered to be in same class as above named cars. Solid value, reviews have been good.
If it were my $: Honda, Toyota, Kia.
Plus the 12th Gen corolla hatch and sedan are so sexy looking I don't think I've ever seen an econobox look so sporty and appealing.For me? Toyota has a long history of reliability so that is their main selling point.
From a mechanical/functional? A reasonable accessibility hatchback, that already knocks out some. The engine is a larger displacement, mechanically simple and low stressed design, so less to go wrong and less likely something will and, less costly if something does.
Plus respectable models if you want something sporty.
Hey! Yeah, realized the size of "compact" is a lot bigger these days.Omg I remember you from my Accord forum! 😂 did you decide that you wanted a compact over a midsize?
Elantra is Hyundai so you know it's complete garbage, they have never been known for their reliability, and they have terrible resale values to prove it. People only buy them for the warranty. The Sentra has a CVT, which, Nissan's CVT's fail constantly. You can't go too wrong with a Civic or a Corolla- the Civic is getting a redesign for 2022, and the Corolla has just recently gotten a fresh redesign for the new generation a year or two ago. I would only consider those two, and I would suggest a test drive to get a feel for their differences and which one would be a better fit for you.
I'm back! I need a good car for about an hour commute. I want something that is updated. Don't need too much space (no kids or anything). Have the budget for the options mentioned.OP never coming back. My reply still stands, what does the OP want in their next vehicle?
I think it looks the best inside and outside, but just my opinion. Comfortable, reliable fun enough when you need it be, and comes with great standard technology and safety features.Anything you'd go for if not Corolla and why?
