The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.7
6.7
TCC’s Bottom Line
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. With the 2021 Corolla, Toyota has almost excised all the bland from its diet.
