Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

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.

The 2018 Mazda Mazda3 ranked #7 in Compact Cars. Currently the Mazda Mazda3 has a score of 8.5 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 39 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

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

The 2019 Hyundai Sonata aims squarely for value-minded shoppers who want a long warranty, and hits a bullseye.

Pros
More stylish than before
Relaxing, comfortable ride quality
Flexible engines
Android or Apple, your interface is OK
Roomy interior

Cons
Light on personality
Sport isn’t all that sporty
Limited customization options
Interior a little downmarket

Just about all of the midsize sedans these days are very good. As a shopper, it can be hard to choose. The 2019 Hyundai Sonata won't really wow you with dramatic styling or crazy amounts of horsepower, but it is a very competent sedan that ranks among the class leaders.

Pros
Solid list of standard features and tons of available tech
Spacious interior accommodations and generous trunk space
Excellent user interface receives a more upscale redesign
Generous warranty coverage

Cons
Lackluster power from base engine
Top turbocharged engine trails performance of its competitors
Slightly less rear legroom than the segment leaders
No options available on Edmunds' recommended Eco trim
