TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2021 Honda Civic doesn’t let social responsibility get in the way of a good time. The 2021 Hyundai Elantra has big style, big available tech, and big range from a hybrid powertrain. The 2021 Mazda 3 straddles the mainstream and upscale markets with a quality cabin, power that ranges from pedestrian to plentiful, and available all-wheel drive.
