The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

6.8
7.2
7.2

TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2018 Chevy Cruze offers lots of compelling reasons to select it, but we’d like to see more safety tech on its standard equipment roster. The 2018 Mazda 3 adds standard active safety features to an already compelling value. Among compact cars, this is one to consider. The 2018 Subaru Impreza offers all-wheel drive for all of us in a comfortable, refined, tech-savvy package.
