TCC’s Bottom Line
Safety upgrades this year make the 2019 Honda Civic as compelling as ever. The 2019 Mazda 3 keeps the zoom, but all-wheel-drive practicality and a vastly upgraded interior make it much more than that. The practical 2019 VW Golf is a smart choice whether as a frugal hatchback or a zippy GTI.
