For the CX-30's sophomore year, Mazda's made virtually no changes to it other than making Apple CarPlay and Android Auto both standard features. Mazda also announced the addition of an optional turbocharged 2.5-liter engine that makes 250-hp.

PROS
Eager driving dynamics,
near-luxury interior trimmings,
plenty of standard tech goodies.

CONS
Could stand a few more horsepower,
offers little added practicality over the Mazda 3 hatchback,
occasional transmission stumbles.

The 2021 Mazda CX-30 is great-looking, spacious, and more polished and fun-to-drive than other compact competitors, but it’s a step behind in value and features.

PROS
Great proportions and styling
Polished powertrain
Standard active-safety suite
Spacious interior layout.

CONS
More expensive than alternatives
Frustrating options packages
Lacks a touchscreen

The Niro isn't our favorite car to drive, but it's perfect for drivers who care as much about fuel efficiency as they do about their budget.

Pros
Efficiently rated up to 52 mpg,
affordable,
practicality of a crossover.

Cons
Some trims lack basic amenities,
uninspiring performance,
plug-in hybrid has limited EV range.
