The Car Connection's Take

4.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
Safety upgrades this year make the 2019 Honda Civic as compelling as ever. The 2018 Mazda 3 adds standard active safety features to an already compelling value. Among compact cars, this is one to consider. The 2019 Nissan Sentra is a compact sedan that handles the basics and little more.
