TCC’s Bottom Line

Safety upgrades this year make the 2019 Honda Civic as compelling as ever. The 2019 Hyundai Veloster Turbo spends all its second-generation capital on feel-good features–and it works. The 2019 Mazda 3 keeps the zoom, but all-wheel-drive practicality and a vastly upgraded interior make it much more than that.
