The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Honda Civic brings better refinement back to the lineup, but there's more to come, we're told. The 2014 Mazda 3 stands out from the small-car crowd, with its sport-car-influenced proportions and sporty driving experience; but its tight, noisy cabin means that it’s not at all the best pick for pragmatists.
