The latest Mazda 3 offers wet-climate drivers an all-wheel-drive rival to the Subaru Impreza for the first time.
Though the Mazda is more expensive than the Subaru, it’s also more fun and its interior is a step up in most ways other than its tricky infotainment system.
The Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla are best sellers in the compact class and deserve a strong look.
The Civic comes in a multitude of configurations, none of which are dull.
The latest Corolla is a big step up, especially in frugal hybrid guise.
VW’s Jetta has clean lines and willing turbo power, plus a ride that’s unusually composed.
Don’t skip the Kia Forte, either, with its neat styling matched with a high level of refinement for a bargain price.
