6.7
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2019 Chevrolet Cruze gains some good content, but its advanced safety tech should be more accessible. The Mazda 3 punches above its weight class with an upmarket interior, good handling, and optional all-wheel drive. It’s still among the more mildly flavored mass-market sedans, but the 2020 Toyota Corolla has dropped the bland from its diet.
