The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.3
6.3
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Fiat 500X comes with more built-in personality than most other small SUVs, though it’s an urban warrior rather than an off-roader. 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.
