The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Mazda 3 stands out from the small-car crowd, with its sport-car-influenced proportions and sporty driving experience; but its tight, noisy cabin means that it’s not at all the best pick for pragmatists. The 2014 Toyota Corolla keeps its frugal, responsible core but adds a lot more verve.
