Kyree Williams Preview:

The Mazda3 has always stood out among compact vehicles. While competitors were focused on efficiency and maximum space, Mazda’s little compact was more about driving dynamics and good ...

Cherise Threewitt Preview:

The Toyota Camry, a midsize sedan that traditionally sells in huge numbers, started to slip in the face of increased competition from crossovers and SUVs. That’s why the 2018 Camry is ...

Liked this car the best in its class. Better than Sentra, Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla, and others.
Power Ranked 2017 Nissan Sentra S worse.
"Looks better--cool design-"
Back Seats Ranked 2017 Nissan Sentra S better.
"Did not compare."

It is a light, tossable small car. Its interior looks great. The seats are somewhat thin and lack support, but...
Front Seats Ranked 2017 BMW 3 Series 340i xDrive Sedan AWD better.
"BMW makes some of the best seats. It is firm but somehow holds you just right. The only seats that Ive sat in that are better are the adaptive seats in Porsches."
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2017 BMW 3 Series 340i xDrive Sedan AWD worse.
"The hatchback is actually several inches shorter but has a larger cargo area. The 340i, being a sedan, loses out on cargo space. Somewhat unrelated, the 340i has rear seats that are too aggressively bolstered for kids booster seats to sit squarely. In my specific situation, I find it almost impossible to have 3 kids in the back when two need boosters, because they slide towards the middle too much. The flatter seat cushions in the Mazda3 is easier to accommodate this. "

Value Ranked 2018 Toyota Corolla LE better.
"Price point for the features included."
Would Buy Ranked 2018 Toyota Corolla LE worse.
"I just loved the style and the feel of the car more than the Corolla. The Mazda3 didnt feel as much like an entry level car as compared to the Corolla."
