IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Compact sedans have never offered more for the money. Once purchased primarily for their low price, high fuel efficiency and ease of operation, compacts served to inexpensively transport an individual or small family from Point A to Point B. Economy usually took priority over excitement, and buyers' aspirations often took a back seat to budget realities. Thankfully, these days that's all changed.
Today's compact sedans retain the core competencies that made them successful, but now boast much more in terms of ride quality, creature comforts, safety, technology and even design. There's also more -- and better -- competition than ever. The hard part comes down to choosing between a good sedan and a great one, or more importantly, the one that best suits your tastes and needs. But with so many great options to choose from, how is one to know which car is best? New-car shoppers can check out the pros and cons of the most popular models in the segment based on detailed evaluations by the expert editors of Kelley Blue Book in an all-new Compact Sedan Comparison Test on KBB.com.

Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them.
