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 2019 Subaru Crosstrek's primary draw is its jack-of-all-trades nature. Like a lot of other similarly priced cars or crossover SUVs, it has a roomy interior for both people and cargo, a smooth ride quality, and a long list of available advanced safety features.Revised feature availability.The Starlink telematics system gains a few new features.

Pros
Spacious interior for a hatchback of its size
Offers optional safety features not typically found in the class
High ground clearance for enhanced off-road capability
Comfortable ride quality

CONS
Slow acceleration on the highway
Handling isn't as precise as that of some rival cars
Lower EPA mileage numbers compared to typical crossovers
