The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
5.7
7.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The unexpectedly sporty character of the 2017 Lexus CT 200h may attract new buyers in the growing segment of luxury compacts, meaning its high fuel economy isn't its only allure. The 2017 Mazda CX-3 keeps the most attractive features from last year: its price and its handling.
