2016 Honda Accord

"From its handsome looks to its high levels of comfort to the plethora of advanced tech, there’s a reason you’ve seen so many Accord’s on the road and will continue to."

2016 Ford Escape

"The well sculpted CUV has great styling, strong design lines and ample curves that Volvo’s from the 80’s and 90’s would disapprove of."

2016 Mazda 3

"The styling remains the same as the outgoing 2015 model, maintaining the KODO “Soul of Motion” appearance of smooth design lines, an athletic stance, all the right curves in all the right places plus an aggressive front fascia."

2016 Kia Optima

"The kind folks at Kia have all engines run on regular gasoline, which is a nice treat, given that they’ve turbocharged two of their engines. Usually, there’d be a premium fuel rating accompanied."

2016 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid

"The Sonata Hybrid is rated at a measly 6.0 city and 5.5 highway for L/100 km and as long as you’re not racing to red lights and jumping off from a standstill like a jackrabbit, chances are you’ll hover in that range. What’s impressive is that it retains the feel of the gasoline Sonata (which I also quite liked) but with a much smaller carbon footprint."

2016 Mazda CX-5

"The important thing here is that they’ve kept the utilitarian side and the “feels like a Mazda 3 GT on the road” side well balanced."
