The Car Connection's Take

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. The 2018 Subaru Crosstrek smooths over the edges that we didn’t like with the last version. It’s smooth, quiet, and capable—all good things because it won’t be rushed.
