    2014 mazda3 & Buick Encore. The mazda3 is all new this year that comes standard with amazing gas mileage, great interior, amazing and fun driving dynamics. The Truck/Utility of the year award should go to a vehicle that’s actually new or fully redesigned.. a lot of vehicles on that list are mid-cycle refresh. I believe the Buick Encore is a nice entry next to the BMW X5.. obviously two entirely different vehicles, but they both excel quite well in the purpose that they were conceived.
