The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.7
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2021 Hyundai Elantra compact sedan is hardly small anymore: It 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.
