The all-new 2019 Mazda Mazda3 hatchback impresses with a stunning interior, improved ride comfort, optional all-wheel-drive, solid fuel economy figures, and a number of advanced safety features. However, we continue to be disappointed by the tight rear seat, a polarizing design that limits driver visibility from the B-pillar on back, a watered-down driving character and, despite improved software, a needlessly complex infotainment system.
New to the lineup last year, the 2019 Lexus RX 350L continues to impress by offering a wide range of advanced safety features, increased versatility over the regular version with more cargo space, plus a standard third row for better family hauling capabilities. At the same time, the price can climb quickly, the infotainment controls are frustrating, while only small children will find the third row remotely comfortable.
Despite a boring interior, less than sporty handling, tight rear quarters, and limited availability, the 2019 Kia Niro EV EX Premium manages to impress with brisk acceleration, a smooth ride, a 239-mile range, and a long list of standard advanced safety features.
All-new last year, the 2019 Lexus LS 500, the brand’s flagship sedan, impresses with a sinewy shape, sybaritic interior, and serene ride, but falls short of perfection with unimpressive piped-in engine sounds, numb steering, and an improved – but still irritating – touchpad interface.
