Recent buyers seeking an affordable sports car have often been forced to make a heart-wrenching choice: the open-air rush of a roadster, or the closed-roof security of a coupe.
But not any more.
Already one of our favorite compact crossovers, Mazda’s CX-5 gets a redesign for 2017 that – in virtually every measure – makes it a better choice than ever.
At first blush, Toyota’s 2018 C-HR looks all the world like a rakish new entry in the compact-crossover segment, but it’s not. At least, not in the traditional sense.

Jeep, a name virtually synonymous with SUVs for more than three-quarters of a century, has hit the mother lode in recent years as buyers suddenly began flocking to that market.
