TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2019 Chevrolet Cruze gains some good content, but its advanced safety tech should be more accessible. The 2019 Mazda 3 keeps the zoom, but all-wheel-drive practicality and a vastly upgraded interior make it much more than that. The 2019 Subaru Impreza is a sensible, right-price, low-compromise compact car.
