2019 Mazda3, 2019 Honda Passport, 2019 Toyota RAV4 Comparison Roundup

We compared three of the most anticipated new models of 2019 this week including the 2019 Mazda3, 2019 Honda Passport and 2019 Toyota RAV4.

The 2019 Mazda3 is one of the most talked-about new compacts arriving in Canada this year. It’s main rival will surely be the best-selling car in Canada for over two decades, the Honda Civic. The 2019 Civic remains relatively unchanged while the Mazda3 gets plenty of new features including optional all-wheel drive, something you only find in the Subaru Impreza.

There is not wrong answer when it comes to which compact you should buy. The availability of all-wheel drive is certainly one of the Mazda3’s most significant advantages, and it’s more powerful overall than the Honda Civic with basically the same fuel economy rating.

2019 Toyota Tacoma vs 2019 Ford Ranger Quick Comparison

Toyota has a new Tacoma coming, but it’s not here yet and buyers looking to buy a new mid-size pickup right now will have to decide between the 2019 Tacoma and the 2019 Ford Ranger as well as a handful of other options in a growing segment.

The 2019 Ford Ranger is the newer model of the two and also features the best towing capacity in its segment for the time being despite not offering a V6. Is that enough to beat the 2019 Toyota Tacoma in our comparison?

The 2019 Honda Passport has been making headlines since it launched at the Los Angeles Auto Show back in November. As Honda’s new five-seat mid-size SUV, it will take on the Ford Edge and Nissan Murano when it arrives on the market in the next few weeks.

In our comparo, we looked at how the 2019 Honda Passport’s specs compare with the 2019 Nissan Murano which was refreshed at the same time as the new Passport was launched. The Murano being older than the Passport, there were some areas where it couldn’t compare with Honda’s latest SUV. On the other hand, its comfort might be enough to make it stand out.

2019 Honda Accord Hybrid vs 2019 Toyota Camry Hybrid

If you’re looking into a hybrid mid-size sedan, the 2019 Honda Accord Hybrid and 2019 Toyota Camry Hybrid are the best options available on the market. As a matter of fact, they are some of the best cars you can buy on the market right now, hybrid or not.

The combination of comfort, efficiency, and driving pleasure they provide is impressive as Matt found out. They are both great hybrids, but which one of these recently redesigned green mid-size sedans stands out above the other?

2019 Toyota RAV4 vs 2019 Ford Escape Quick Comparison

Completely redesigned, the 2019 Toyota RAV4 enters a segment where basically every automaker has a model to offer consumers. This comparison put two of the best-selling compact SUVs head-to-head. The 2019 Ford Escape returns basically unchanged from last year and overall the Escape is coming along in age.

A refresh or full redesign of the Escape is expected soon, but for now the 2019 RAV4 is the more modern and better-equipped of the two. Can the Escape make up for it in terms of value and interior space?

The 2020 BMW X3 M was unveiled last week and becomes the first direct competitor to the Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 S. These two monster compact luxury SUVs both offer over 500 horsepower in their most powerful versions and can reach 100 km/h in about 4.0 seconds.

Although the X3 M is brand-new, we still thought it would be a good idea to compare its specs to its main rival at Mercedes-AMG. When it comes down to it, most buyers will hesitate between these two compact SUV rockets.

Check out our full 2020 BMW X3 M vs 2019 Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 S comparison.

We’ll be doing a lot of 2019 Mazda3 comparison tests given the significance of Mazda’s new compact. Here, we look at how the Sport model compares with the 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback in terms of versatility, features, and engines.

With the new Mazda3 offering a range of new features and the Corolla Hatchback being fairly recent as well, these are two of the best options you can buy if you want space without sacrificing driving pleasure.
