2021 Mazda CX-30 2.5 Turbo

Consumer Guide Automotive

The Mazda CX-30 debuted for 2020 as a “gap-filler” crossover SUV between the subcompact CX-3 and the compact CX-5 in Mazda’s crossover SUV lineup. With more and more shoppers eschewing traditional passenger cars in favor of SUVs, there’s room for more variety in automakers’ SUV lineups, and the CX-30 promised a Goldilocks-style “just right” fit for shoppers who needed something larger than the diminutive, urban-chic CX-3 but didn’t want to step up to the pricier, bigger CX-5.

2009 Hummer H2 SUT

And just like that, the Hummer brand is back from the dead. Due in showrooms late in 2021, the all-new 2022 Hummer EV pickup truck will be a flagship of General Motors’ latest electric-vehicle initiative. This time, however, Hummer is a sub-brand of GMC, not a stand-alone brand. And this time, Hummer will not be shunned by the buying public when gas prices again spike—the new Hummer uses no gas.

Hyundai Venue

Hyundai Venue SEL in Black Noir Pearl

Ever since the Hyundai Venue subcompact SUV debuted as a mid-2020 model, we at Consumer Guide have held this penny-pinching urban runabout in high regard. We added it to our Best Buy awards roster as a midyear addition for 2020, and kept it on the list for 2021 as well. Though it isn’t what you’d call quick, and it doesn’t offer all-wheel drive like most of its class rivals do, the Venue is an exceptionally likable vehicle.

2021 Kia Sorento Hybrid EX in Runway Red (a $445 option)

Consumer Guide Automotive

When the outstanding Kia Telluride debuted as a 2020 model, it was an instant hit. This all-new “plus-size” midsize three-row SUV garnered many industry accolades (including a Consumer Guide Best Buy award), and continues to be a top seller for the brand. The Telluride’s success made it easy to forget that Kia already had a strong-selling, albeit smaller, three-row midsize SUV in its model lineup. The Kia Sorento was introduced as a 2003 model, and for 2021 it gets a complete redesign that brings it out of the shadow of the Telluride and back into the spotlight.
