The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Mazda3 engages drivers like few other compact cars, though a little more room and less noise couldn't hurt. The 2010 Toyota Corolla has two different personalities: a bare-basic entry-level model and the sporty—but pricey—Corolla XRS.
