6.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2022 Honda Civic remains a go-to economy car, with low-key performance and high-economy powertrains. 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. The 2022 Nissan Sentra uncovers a cache of refinement in its sleek shape and refined ride.
