The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 MINI Cooper Paceman family is a design-driven, fun, and still functional small car--if you don't need a lot of extra space, why not add some extra style? The 2013 Mazda 3 drives with a lot more sophistication and verve than you might expect for a small car this affordable, practical, and fuel-efficient.
