TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Chevrolet Trax offers a useful hatchback shape in a smart package that's more practical than it is stylish. The 2016 Honda HR-V smartly trades a little of the Fit's fuel economy for exuberant styling, more headroom, and optional all-wheel drive. The 2016 Mazda CX-3 is stylish, well-equipped, and one of the most fun-to-drive vehicles in its segment.
