Handling is excellent, and the turbo four-cylinder engine is strong. The interior is also classy. Downsides include a multimedia system that can be hard to use and less cabin space than its main competitors, particularly in the third row.

The Mazda6 is a five-seat mid-size sedan that’s powered by a choice of four-cylinder engines: a standard 187-horsepower, 2.5-liter four-cylinder or an available 227-hp, turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder. Both engines work with a six-speed automatic transmission. Competitors include the Kia Optima, Honda Accord and Toyota Camry. What’s New on the 2019 Mazda6? New standard active safety features include forward collision warning with pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, lane-keeping assist and adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go capability.

Should I Buy the 2019 Mazda6? In the mid-size sedan class, the Mazda6 stands out for its handling and available premium finishes. However, the base four-cylinder engine could use more low-end power, and efficiency-focused shoppers looking for a hybrid version will have to look at one of the Mazda6’s competitors.

  5. Notable Features in 2019 Redesigned for 2019 Sedan or hatchback Newly available AWD Standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder Standard 8.8-inch dashboard display Available manual transmission Price Range $21,000–$28,900 Consumer Rating (4.9)20 reviews MPG (Miles per gallon) 27-30 Body Styles Hatchback, Sedan The Good Handling Brakes Steering feedback Interior quality Driver-accessible storage Manual transmission still available The Bad Narrow driver’s seat Cramped backseat Multimedia system operation Expensive starting price Automatic braking not standard Gas mileage The verdict: Redesigned for 2019, the Mazda3 doubles down on its roots as a car for drivers, not passengers. Versus the competition: Drivability and quality shine in the fourth-generation Mazda3, but a cramped interior and fussy controls might push consumers to more practical — and often less expensive — alternatives. Available as a sedan or hatchback, the Mazda3 comes standard with a punchier four-cylinder engine than is the compact-class norm. The prior generation’s base engine has been dropped for the U.S. market, but all-wheel drive is newly optional. Stick-shift enthusiasts can still get a manual in the hatchback’s highest trim level; other trims have an automatic. We tested the automatic on a hatchback and later a sedan, both well-equipped examples with AWD. Compare both cars, or read our initial thoughts after driving the Mazda3 at a media preview. Styling and Visibility Mazda hinted at the Mazda3 hatchback with the beady-eyed Kai concept in late 2017, but the production car is no less dramatic. A heavily raked windshield sweeps nearly over the front seats, while enormous rear pillars envelop the back half. It’s as much pillar as you get in hatchbacks like the Hyundai Veloster or erstwhile Honda CR-Z, and it hurts visibility just as much. If the prior Mazda3 hatch suffered poor sight lines, its successor is even worse. Glance over your shoulder, and an enormous column separates the tapered rear-door window from the tiny rear window.

Now in its fourth generation, the Mazda MX-5 Miata is powered by a 181-horsepower, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that works with a standard six-speed manual or an optional six-speed automatic transmission. This rear-wheel-drive two-seater comes with a standard manual-folding soft-top; a nifty but pricey RF model has a power-folding retractable hardtop. The MX-5 is built on the same platform as the Fiat 124 Spider, and other rivals include the Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ. What's New on the 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata? Horsepower jumps to 181 from 155 hp thanks to several internal changes to the engine and revisions to the exhaust system. Torque is up by 3 pounds-feet to 151.

New options include a brown canvas soft-top, metallic black 17-inch wheels, traffic sign recognition and low-speed automatic emergency braking. What Features in the 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata Are Most Important? The MX-5 Miata's most important features are the kind you can't check off on a list of specs: seductive looks, brisk acceleration, crisp handling, a convertible top that's easy to fold and raise and the ability to make you smile just about every time you get behind the wheel. Should I Buy the 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata? If you can afford nearly $27,000 for a highly impractical car, go for it. Your reward will be the enjoyment of driving it.

  8. Mazda Motor Corporation (Japanese: マツダ株式会社 Hepburn: Matsuda Kabushiki-gaisha), commonly referred to as simply Mazda, is a Japanese multinational automaker based in Fuchū, Aki District, Hiroshima Prefecture, Japan. In 2015, Mazda produced 1.5 million vehicles for global sales, the majority of which (nearly 1 million) were produced in the company's Japanese plants, with the remainder coming from a variety of other plants worldwide. In 2015, Mazda was the fifteenth biggest automaker by production worldwide. Mazda tried using a number of different marques in the Japanese (and occasionally Australian) markets in the 1990s, including Autozam, Eunos, and ɛ̃fini. This effort was phased out before the decade was over. The motivation was brought on by market competition from other Japanese automakers efforts in offering vehicles at multiple Japanese dealership networks offered by Toyota, Nissan, and Honda. Mazda's implementation of brand diversification reflected a Japanese engineering philosophy, called Kansei engineering, which was used as an advertising slogan in North America. This selective marketing experiment was ended in the mid-1990s due to economic conditions, largely attributed to the collapse of the Japanese asset price bubble in 1991. This diversification stressed the product development groups at Mazda past its limits. Instead of having a half-dozen variations on any given platform, developers were asked to work on dozens of different models and consumers were confused as well by the explosion of similar new models. One of the oddest sub-marques was M2, used on three rare variants of the Eunos Roadster (the M2-1001, M2-1002 and M2-1028) and one of the Autozam AZ-1 (M2-1015). M2 even had its own avant-garde company headquarters, but was shut down after a very short period of operation. Today, the former marques no longer exist in Japan as sales channels. The Carol was sold at the Autozam store (which specialized in small cars), but it now sold with the Mazda marque, not as the Autozam Carol as it once was. In early 1992 Mazda planned to release a luxury marque, Amati, to challenge Acura, Infiniti, and Lexus in North America, which was to begin selling in late 1993. The initial Amati range would have included the Amati 500 (which became the Eunos 800 in Japan and Australia, Mazda Millenia in the U.S., and Mazda Xedos 9 in Europe), a rebadged version of the Mazda Cosmo and the Amati 1000 (a rear-wheel drive W12 successor to the Mazda Luce). The Amati marque was eventually scrapped before any cars hit the market. It is perhaps just a curiosity, but "Amati" happens to be an anagram of "Miata" In Europe, the Xedos name was also associated with the Mazda Xedos 6, the two models were in production from 1992 until 1997. The Xedos line was marketed under the Mazda marque, and used the Mazda badge from the corresponding years. wikipedia.org
  9. Price Range $33,545–$43,545 Consumer Rating (4.9)33 reviews MPG (Miles per gallon) 19 Body Styles Crew Cab Competes with: Chevrolet Colorado, Ford Ranger, Nissan Frontier, Toyota Tacoma Looks like: A long Jeep Wrangler with a truck bed Drivetrain: 285-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 or 260-horsepower, turbo-diesel 3.0-liter V-6; six-speed manual transmission (3.6-liter only) or eight-speed automatic; part-time four-wheel drive Hits dealerships: Spring 2019 It’s back! The Jeep pickup truck, long rumored and the subject of much forum debate and excited anticipation, has fully broken cover at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show. Jeep hasn’t offered a pickup since the old XJ-based Comanche two-door was discontinued in 1992 and the Dodge Dakota was killed in 2011, but given the continued success of the Toyota Tacoma and the rebirth of interest in the Chevrolet Colorado since its redesign four years ago, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles decided the time was right to return to the market with its own mid-size pickup. The new 2020 Jeep Gladiator is a Jeep Wrangler JL-based truck, featuring all the capabilities of the SUV version, now in an even more versatile form. Exterior From the outside, it would appear that not much is different. It’s immediately recognizable as a Wrangler-based vehicle, with the front end and cabin basically identical to the four-door Wrangler JL. The Gladiator will only be available as a four-door crew-cab model, riding on an extended-length wheelbase but replacing the rear section with a 5-foot steel pickup bed.

The Unlimited name first appeared on a long-wheelbase version of the two-door 2004 Wrangler, but the four-door version didn't appear until the 2006 model year. With the same rugged, distinctively retro look and similar off-road capability, the five-seat Wrangler Unlimited offers a longer wheelbase for easier rear-seat access and more room once you’re back there. A 2018 redesign addressed many Wrangler drawbacks, improving on-road handling and ride comfort while bringing a quieter, more civilized interior and added technology features. Like its two-door sibling, the Wrangler Unlimited offers a removable roof, several trim levels and a long list of customization options and accessories. Even with its improvements for 2018, though, there are SUVs that offer more cargo room and better on-road manners, which many buyers might prefer for all-around use. The Wrangler Unlimited competes with the Toyota 4Runner. Designed to stay true to its roots while improving overall livability, the 2018 redesign of the Wrangler Unlimited brought new powertrains, a suspension tuned for improved on-road drivability and a revised interior with better materials and an available 8.4-inch touchscreen multimedia system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone connectivity. Engine choices included a new turbocharged four-cylinder or a carryover 3.6-liter V-6. An available turbo-diesel V-6 is scheduled to arrive for the 2019 model year. Transmission choices include a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic.

The Wrangler is Jeep’s wildly popular 4×4. It's available as a two-door or four-door SUV, the latter known as the Wrangler Unlimited. The two-door model has room for four people, and the four-door seats five. It's powered by a standard 285-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 engine that teams with a standard six-speed manual transmission or an available eight-speed automatic. There’s also an optional 270-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that pumps out 295 pounds-feet of torque; it pairs with the eight-speed automatic. Open-air freedom is easily accessible with the Wrangler thanks to its removable doors, fold-down windshield and removable tops. Four-wheel drive is standard, and the Rubicon trim level features upgraded mechanicals for serious off-roading. What’s New on the 2019 Jeep Wrangler? Adaptive cruise control and forward collision warning are now included in the available Advanced Safety Group Package. What Features in the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Are Most Important? The four-door Wrangler Unlimited is a rugged people hauler that offers a power-sliding top. Looking for more insulation for colder months? A three-piece hardtop with a rear defroster and full-framed doors is available. Cloth seats are standard, but leather upholstery is optional. Heated front seats and a heated steering wheel are also optional. Moving up to the 7- or 8.4-inch touchscreen multimedia system adds Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity. With the four-door Wrangler Unlimited, both engines offer 3,500 pounds of maximum towing capacity, but that drops to 2,000 pounds in two-door models. Should I Buy the 2019 Jeep Wrangler? If you’re a first-time Wrangler buyer, note that the high starting price of around $30,000 doesn’t get you many creature comforts. You won’t have power windows, power locks or air conditioning; those features are optional. What you do get, however, is an iconic, durable and rugged 4×4 that’s fun to drive and capable off-road. Its recent redesign for the 2018 model year increased its overall refinement — especially on paved surfaces — without diluting the qualities that make the Wrangler what it is.

A 177-hp, turbocharged 1.3-liter four-cylinder is also available. Front- and all-wheel-drive versions are offered, and competitors include the Chevrolet Trax, Honda HR-V and Hyundai Kona. What's New on the 2019 Jeep Renegade? A new turbocharged 1.3-liter four-cylinder engine with engine stop-start technology is available. Styling updates to the front end include a revised grille surround, while the instrument cluster gets new graphics. A new LED Lighting Group includes LED headlights, daytime running lights, cornering lights and taillights. The Advanced Tech Group, meanwhile, adds adaptive cruise control, front parking sensors and a self-parking system. What Features in the 2019 Jeep Renegade Are Most Important? Available convenience features include cruise control, power side mirrors, air conditioning, a panoramic moonroof, rain-sensing windshield wipers, leather-trimmed seats, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity, and navigation. In addition to the features mentioned above, the Advanced Tech Group also includes forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist and automatic high-beam headlights. Should I Buy the 2019 Jeep Renegade? The Renegade drives well and features a quiet cabin filled with interesting design details. In addition, the Trailhawk trim's off-road prowess is impressive. We've found the nine-speed automatic transmission to be a bit balky at times, so a test drive consisting of city, suburban and highway driving is highly recommended before purchasing.

  16. Notable Features in 2019 Five-seat compact/mid-size SUV New front-end styling New turbocharged 2.0-liter engine option Cargo volume increased slightly 7- or 8.4-inch touchscreen Apple CarPlay and Android Auto now available Many safety and convenience options added Price Range $25,045–$38,495 Consumer Rating (4.9)472 reviews MPG (Miles per gallon) 21-25 Body Styles SUV The Good New turbo engine mitigates transmission failings Simple controls Uconnect touchscreens Ride Roomy cabin Peerless off-roading (especially Trailhawk) Child-seat accommodation The Bad Transmission hesitation Modest cargo volume Turbo engine prefers premium gas Some safety options not available on Latitude Transient glitches using Android Auto The verdict: A powerful new turbo engine option improves things, but an ill-tempered transmission still holds back the otherwise well-rounded, newly updated 2019 Jeep Cherokee. Versus the competition: There are no similarly priced peers for the Cherokee’s off-roading ability, and it's a strong player overall, but its cargo volume is modest even among compact competitors, and its balky transmission is a drawback, especially when teamed with a less powerful engine. We had high hopes for the 2019 Jeep Cherokee. We’re very fond of it overall — in spite of the fact that after a year’s ownership of a 2014 model, we unanimously concluded that we wouldn’t buy another. Somehow, our affection for the Cherokee was strong enough that we were able to overlook the engine replacement it mysteriously required; what we couldn’t overlook was the bad behavior of its only transmission, a nine-speed automatic — especially when paired with the base 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine. Despite numerous changes to its programming both in our early model and in subsequent model years, the transmission would hesitate too long when a downshift was called for. (At least the hard upshifts improved somewhat over the years.) The 2019 Cherokee has a few things going for it, starting with its first substantial refresh since 2014, which is an opportunity to make improvements. On the flip side, the Jeep Compass was completely redesigned for 2017 and was a disappointment, partly due to the same transmission. The 2019 Cherokee could go either way. How did Jeep do?

  17. Jeep is a brand of American automobile and division of FCA US LLC (formerly Chrysler Group, LLC), a wholly owned subsidiary of the Italian-American corporation Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. Jeep has been a part of Chrysler since 1987, when Chrysler acquired the Jeep brand, along with remaining assets, from its previous owner American Motors Corporation (AMC). Jeep's product range consists solely of sport utility vehicles – both cross-overs and fully off-road worthy models, including one pickup truck. Previously, Jeep's range included other pick-ups, as well as small vans, and a few roadsters. Some of Jeep's vehicles—such as the Grand Cherokee—reach into the luxury SUV segment, a market segment the 1963 Wagoneer is considered to have started. Jeep sold 1.4 million SUVs globally in 2016, up from 500,000 in 2008, two-thirds of which in North America, and was Fiat-Chrysler's best selling brand in the U.S. during the first half of 2017. In the U.S. alone, over 2400 dealerships hold franchise rights to sell Jeep-branded vehicles, and if Jeep were spun off into a separate company, it is estimated to be worth between $22 and $33.5 billion—slightly more than all of FCA (US). Prior to 1940 the term "jeep" had been used as U.S. Army slang for new recruits or vehicles, but the World War II "jeep" that went into production in 1941 specifically tied the name to this light military 4x4, arguably making them the oldest four-wheel drive mass-production vehicles now known as SUVs. The Jeep became the primary light 4-wheel-drive vehicle of the United States Armed Forces and the Allies during World War II, as well as the postwar period. The term became common worldwide in the wake of the war. Doug Stewart noted: "The spartan, cramped, and unstintingly functional jeep became the ubiquitous World War II four-wheeled personification of Yankee ingenuity and cocky, can-do determination." It is the precursor of subsequent generations of military light utility vehicles such as the Humvee, and inspired the creation of civilian analogs such as the original Series I Land Rover. Many Jeep variants serving similar military and civilian roles have since been designed in other nations. The Jeep marque has been headquartered in Toledo, Ohio, ever since Willys-Overland launched production of the first CJ or Civilian Jeep branded models there in 1945. Its replacement, the conceptually consistent Jeep Wrangler series, remains in production since 1986. With its solid axles and open top, the Wrangler has been called the Jeep model that is as central to the brand’s identity as the rear-engined 911 is to Porsche. At least two Jeep models (the CJ-5 and the SJ Wagoneer) enjoyed extraordinary three-decade production runs of a single body generation. In lowercase, the term "jeep" continues to be used as a generic term for vehicles inspired by the Jeep that are suitable for use on rough terrain. wikipedia.org
  18. The Peugeot 5008 is a car model produced by the French manufacturer Peugeot since 2009, in two body style categories: a compact MPV until 2016, and a crossover SUV from 2017. Five and seven seat versions have been available. Its engine range mimics the Peugeot 3008. Second generation (2017–present) The second generation is an SUV, unveiled to the press on 7 September 2016, before a presentation to the public scheduled for the 2016 Paris Motor Show. It is essentially a seven seater version of the Peugeot 3008, which was to be released in the spring of 2017. It competes with other crossovers, such as the Skoda Kodiaq, Hyundai Tucson, Kia Sportage, Nissan X-Trail, Ford Kuga, Jeep Cherokee, Volkswagen Tiguan, Dodge Journey, Subaru Forester, Honda CR-V, and Toyota RAV4. The 5008 II is assembled in France at the PSA plant in Rennes. Assembly in China takes place at the Dongfeng-PSA plant in Chengdu together with the 3008 II (called the 4008 in China) and the Citroën C5 Aircross. In China, these three models all share the same platform, engines and transmission. Design Unlike the previous generation that was a pure MPV, the 5008 II is displayed as an SUV to follow a current trend in sales. It is actually an extended version of the 3008, presented a several months previously. Specific elements include a different front grille and front bumper, and a chrome arch running through the entire pavilion to the bottom of the rear window. In the same way, the interior essentially takes up the iCockpit of its cousin. In particular, the 8 inch captive touchscreen, but also a 12.3 inch high resolution digital head up panel, is available. On the other hand, the wheelbase extended to 2.84 m makes it possible to significantly increase the capacity; seven places are now available, divided into three rows. On the first, the passenger seat can be shelved to load the long objects. The second row is composed of three independent seats, retractable and adjustable in length and inclination. Finally, the third includes two additional seats, also independent and retractable, but also extractable. wikipedia.org
  19. The Peugeot 3008 is a compact crossover SUV unveiled by French automaker Peugeot in May 2008, and presented for the first time to the public in Dubrovnik, Croatia.

In January 2010, the British motoring magazine What Car? awarded it Car of the Year for 2010. It also was awarded 2010 Semperit Irish Car of the Year in Ireland. The 3008 followed up this award in 2018, by winning the Continental Irish Car of the Year. In 2016, Peugeot unveiled the new 3008, with the car being available as of January 2017.

Diesel Car Magazine awarded the 3008 the overall award of Car of the Year for 2017, as well as taking the honour of Best Medium SUV. In March 2017, the new 3008 won European Car Of The Year 2017, by a jury of 58 motoring journalists from twenty two European countries. The award came the same day that the PSA Group announced a $2.3 billion deal to buy GM’s Opel division. Opel’s Astra won the Car of the Year in 2016, reacted with these two awards within two years, the Peugeot Group CEO Jean-Philippe Imparato said, “This is an alliance of winners.” Second generation (2016–present) A second generation 3008 was announced by Peugeot in May 2016, and was first presented to the public at the Paris Motor Show in September 2016. Its design allows the vehicle to come into contention with large competitors in the C segment market of SUVs, which has been a prominent market in the past years. It features Peugeot's new iCockpit, which is an improved design compared to the current iCockpit featured in the Peugeot 208, Peugeot 2008 and Peugeot 308. The second generation was introduced on 23 May 2016. Features include an eight inch touch screen to the centre console, a 12.3 inch customisable heads up display, and the small style steering wheel, which has become standard in all current models of Peugeot. Production started in 2016, with sales starting in January 2017. 100,000 orders were made in Europe between October 2016 and March 2017, half of them were made by people who did not own a Peugeot. wikipedia.org

  21. The Peugeot 508 is a large family car launched in October 2010 by French automaker Peugeot, and followed by the 508 SW, an estate version, in March 2011. It replaces the Peugeot 407, as well as the larger Peugeot 607, for which no direct replacement was scheduled. It shares its platform and most engine options with the second generation Citroën C5: the two cars are produced alongside one another at the company's Rennes Plant, and in Wuhan, China for sales inside China.
