TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2020 Honda Civic sets the pace among affordable compact cars. The Mazda 3 punches above its weight class with an upmarket interior, good handling, and optional all-wheel drive. It’s still among the more mildly flavored mass-market sedans, but the 2020 Toyota Corolla has dropped the bland from its diet.
