First Ride: 2016 Mazda Mazda3 Is Affordable, Easy To Park, Practical

We Let The Dog Decide: 2014 Honda Civic EX-L Vs. 2014 Mazda3i Grand Touring

When the 2012 Honda Civic was first released it was raked over the coals for uncharacteristically subpar driving dynamics,interior quality and the continued use of a five-speed automatic which apparently was outlawed during the time of Moses.

Luckily, the 2014 Mazda6 has all these attributes in spades — and what’s under the hood ain’t so bad, either.
