Most Researched Cars of the Week: September 15 — 21

If there’s one thing that many of this week’s “most researched cars” hold in common, it’s compact size.

The Hyundai Elantra, Toyota Corolla and Mazda3 are all compact sedans, while the Mazda CX-5 is a compact crossover. Mazda’s new SkyActiv platform is gathering praise from the automotive press in every instance. Time and time again, it proves to offer vehicles with impressive driving dynamics and refinement that few compare to.

Both the Toyota Corolla and Mazda3 are all-new for the 2104 model year. Beside those, the Hyundai Elantra is starting to look a little bit outdated. Still, the Korean compact car is a worthwhile product to consider.

The 2014 Mazda6 made a splash as soon as it arrived. Stylish, loaded with technology and entertaining to drive, there’s a good reason why it won AutoGuide’s mid-size sedan shootout.
