The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.8
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Honda Civic drops almost all the economy-car pretense; in Touring trim, it could easily wear a premium label. The 2016 Mazda 3 is one of the best-driving and best-looking small cars, with a more premium feel than its (now even lower) price might suggest.
