Mazda bestowed a bounty of updates during the previous model year, which include visual refreshments and additional driver assists, but the company doesn't make any significant changes to the 2020 CX-3 lineup.

Pros
Drives better than its rivals,
drinks less fuel than its rivals,
looks better than its rivals.

Cons
Back seat and cargo area are too small,
coarse engine noises,
can't hide harsh bumps.

The 2021 Kia Sorento crossover SUV strikes out in a new styling direction, and brings hybrid and plug-in models along for the adventure.

PROS
More expressive
Available hybrid powertrains
Bigger interior
More square inches of touchscreen

CONS
What’s with the door tooth?
Third-row seat’s very, very small
More noise
More hard plastic in the cabin

The Sorento is all new for 2021, with a starting price that's $2450 higher than last year. Its boxier proportions and bolder styling mark a stark departure from the curvier and softer appearance of the outgoing Sorento. In addition to riding on an all-new platform that's bigger inside and out, the new Sorento adds a hybrid powertrain as well as an eventual plug-in variant.We like the EX trim level. It's pricier than the bottom two models, but it comes standard with the more powerful 281-hp turbo-four. It also has nicer amenities than the S trim below it that include leatherette upholstery, heated front seats, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, remote start, and snazzier styling such as 18-inch wheels and black exterior accents.
