The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Chevrolet Trax, Chevy’s smallest utility vehicle, is straightforward: it’s plain on the outside but practical inside, not particularly fast but adequately fuel-efficient. The 2018 Honda HR-V blends great rear-seat flexibility and gas mileage, but it’s slow. The 2018 Mazda CX-3 is an attractive small crossover pick thanks to its good looks. We’d ask for more room, but fear that would spoil the CX-3’s low price.
