The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Subaru WRX and WRX STI are astonishing all-wheel-drive performers for the price, with good space and all season capability, but their looks and interiors aren't up to the driving engagement. The 2017 Mazda 3 is near the top of our favorite compact cars on sale today. Its good performance, good fuel economy, and good value make for a very good car.
