The 2020 Honda CR-V fits the family without much flair

The 2020 Honda CR-V fills a lot of needs: It’s well packaged, comfortable, safe, and spacious.

2020 Honda Civic vs. 2020 Mazda 3: Compare Cars

2019 Mazda 3 – Best Car To Buy 2020

The Mazda 3 and Honda Civic stand above and beyond much of the compact-car class for how they prioritize the driving experience itself. Neither one forgets that cost-conscious compact-car shoppers want a car that’s inherently practical, frugal, and packed with features for the money.
