User-friendly infotainment system

The 2018 Dodge Charger has aged remarkably well–and if it’s four-door muscle you need, few sedans deliver its performance thrill.

Pros
Terrific V-8/rear-drive fun
V-6 is reasonably powerful and efficient
Ride and handling still impress
Still, an appealing look
Still has better infotainment than any Lexus

Cons
V-8s are heavy and thirsty
Low-buck base interior trim
No V-8/AWD pairing
In the running with the Nissan Frontier as the oldest vehicle on the market

What makes the Mazda 3 one of our favorite cars—not to mention a multi-time 10Best Cars winner? Its winning formula is simple and continues to win us over: sharp looks, a near-premium interior, and sublime driving dynamics. The 3 is available in both sedan and hatchback body styles, with one of two efficient inline-four engines and either a slick-shifting six-speed manual or an almost-as-satisfying six-speed automatic transmission.

Pros
Dapper styling,
joyous road manners,
upscale cabin and trimmings.

Cons
Lacks low-end grunt,
some ride choppiness,
short on luxury amenities.

Pros
Athletic handling
Good fuel economy
Upscale interior
Easy-to-use infotainment system

Cons
Below-average trunk space in sedan models
Bottom-of-the-barrel predicted reliability rating

By:

For 2018, the Mazda 3 remains mostly the same, with only a shuffling of features and option packages.Grand Touring gets LED headlights as standard. Elsewhere, some option packages have been renamed, combined or dropped.

PROS
Sporty and confidence-inspiring performance
Some high-end features are unique to this class
Top crash test scores
Interior quality exceeds expectations

CONS
Cargo capacity isn't as large as the class leaders
Ride quality can be a little stiff with optional 18-inch wheels
