Quick Specs
8.4
Overall the 2010 MazdaSpeed3 delivers pulse-quickening thrills for the back roads—or weekend track forays—all on a tight budget, without sacrificing too much practicality for everyday commuting.
7.2
The 2010 Hyundai Elantra remains a perfectly competent and spacious—if slightly boring—sedan, while the Touring wagon gets a more exciting personality.
7.6
Not quite a utility vehicle, but a little more robust than a no-frills hatchback, the 2010 Toyota Matrix offers an appealing combination of frugality and versatility.
7.2
With its standard all-wheel-drive system, the 2010 Subaru Impreza automatically has a leg up over many of its rivals in the small car segment. Throw in its strong performance and safety credentials and the Subaru is hard to beat.
8.4
Fun, fun, fun: Kia tries a little Soul on for size, and it fits.
