The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
5.4
6.8
6.2
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. It’s still among the more mildly flavored mass-market sedans, but the 2020 Toyota Corolla has dropped the bland from its diet.
