Best Car Brand: Mazda 

Returning to claim our Best Car Brand award for the fifth time is Mazda, thanks to its winning combination of performance chops and excellent interior quality. Its three models, the Mazda3, Mazda6, and MX-5 Miata, are each unique in their own right, but they're all are consistently standout performers in their respective classes. Mazda cars are also notable for having interiors that brush up against luxury standards in terms of comfort and material quality.  

The Mazda3 was redesigned for the 2019 model year and is now one of our top-ranked compact cars. Its engaging handling, comfortable ride, and smooth powertrain make for a competent package that should suit the wide-ranging needs of many different drivers. The Mazda3 offers both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive, which is uncommon in the compact car segment.

If cargo space is important to you, then the available hatchback body style and folding rear seats should help the Mazda3 meet your needs. Regardless of body style, the Mazda3’s interior contains high-quality materials, comfortable seating, and an intuitive infotainment system.
