The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
5.8
6.3
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Hyundai Kona compact crossover SUV uses its space—and your money—wisely. The 2018 Mazda CX-3 is an attractive small crossover pick thanks to its good looks. We’d ask for more room, but fear that would spoil the CX-3’s low price.
