The Mazda 3 is one of the most refined and enjoyable small cars to drive. Mazda offers two body styles: a regular sedan or a hatchback with more cargo space. You can get both with all-wheel drive. Look for a Mazda 3 in the 2.5 S trim level or the new-for-2021 2.5 Turbo. All-wheel drive is optional on the 2.5 S and standard on the 2.5 Turbo. The 2.5 S has a 186-horsepower four-cylinder engine, while the 2.5 Turbo offers 250 horsepower. The Mazda 3 doesn’t have as much rear legroom as other top small cars such as the Honda Civic, but what it does have is useful enough for adults on short journeys. Starting MSRP: $25,045.
