Well I have to say that they picked the right category to review. The competition in the compact segment is really getting good over the past couple of years. I'm glad to see the Mazda do so well. I know it's the first car to get the Skyactive engine but the technology is not just for the engine. The next generation will feature more technology to make it a better vehicle. I fully expect the next generation to be lighter, bigger, more attractive, stiffer, and offer better driving dynamics, oh and of course a bit more fuel efficient.
It will definitely be interesting to see how the Dart does against this group. As for the Cruze winning I'm a bit surprised, personally I'd be more worried about reliability after 5 years of ownership than the rest of the lineup. Then again the two worst vehicles will probably the top two most reliable vehicles.
