Top 10 Cars of the 2012 LA Auto Show

3. 2013 Honda Civic

Before clicking away in disgust, think about the logic. Sure, the Civic is sort of like Spam where the past two cars are like beluga caviar, but fried spam tastes good and you can afford it.

What’s more, Honda listened to the world and refreshed the car only a year after its current generation launched. The result? A range that offers a compact sedan, hybrid and hotter Si that climbs into 200-hp territory — all within most new car buyer budgets.

Better still, the car gets updated styling inside and out that leave it looking and feeling less like the budget car you cringe over and more like something you might actually buy.

    It may not be a sports car but it should be the best driving midsize sedan. Great design too and one people can actually buy and use on a daily basis. well done Mazda.

    The 1.8 liter turbo engine from Ford is being recalled for engine fires. Maybe not the car you want to put as #1 on your list, unless its a car that is most likely to kill you list.
