And the Best Car Brand Winner is: Mazda
Choosing the right car can be daunting with all the brands on the market. US News & World Report (USNWR) has made it easier with their Best Car Brands ratings, and Mazda ranked best for its lineup of attractive cars with great driving dynamics.
Mazda3 — The Mazda3 was rated one of the sportiest compact cars on the market today. But compact does not mean uncomfortable and hard to handle. USNWR feels the Mazda3 offers comfort and a civilized driving and riding experience that belies its small size. It also offers great gas mileage, a premium cabin in its price range, and Mazda Connect infotainment rated as intuitive and responsive. A hatchback model is also available for those needing a bit more cargo space.
Mazda6 — The Mazda6 offers the same premium styling and comfort as the Mazda3, but in a larger wheelbase. The rear seat is roomier, making it a good candidate for a small family. It also offers great peace of mind due to its excellent crash ratings.
MX-5 Miata — If you don’t need a back seat but want one of the sportiest small cars on the market, go for the MX-5 Miata. It’s fast and nimble with its strong engine and light weight, and handles well due to excellent weight distribution. In addition, it offers available safety features such as blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, and lane departure warning that aren’t always available in other sports cars of its class.
