Glad we're able to do more quick tests like this one. Expect more to come. 
 
We took our long-term 2013 Honda Civic and tested it against the 2013 Toyota Corolla in this post: http://goo.gl/2zOHx
The Civic won at the pump but how did it handle the outgoing Corolla in other categories?

I can't wait to get to the show floor for this. I know it doesn't look like much but still most excited about the WRX. And the F-Type Coupe...

Always a big deal when we publish one of our multicar comparos. This one on the big trend of big sedans with the +Chevrolet Impala taking the top spot. No. 2 might be more of a surprise.
