Once again, our review of the 2018 Jeep Wrangler sits atop our weekly rankings. Cars.com reviewer Aaron Bragman — himself a proud owner of the previous JK generation of the Wrangler — praises Jeep for doing away with the “yeah, buts” of buying a Wrangler with the new JL model. Second place, however, belongs to a newcomer to our rankings.

It’s a newcomer to our site, as well. Only published Aug. 31, the 2019 Mazda CX-3 review rockets into second place. Calling it a car for those “who want the dessert before the meat and potatoes,” reviewer Fred Meier praises the CX-3 for its styling and handling chops, while noting that the small, low-slung “SUV” is really more of a hatchback with limited backseat and cargo space compared to its rivals.
Ultimately, Meier notes, “The carlike CX-3 carves its own niche, so its value depends on whether its strengths match what you want most for your daily driving.”
Over on the video side of things, our sister site PickupTrucks.com’s recent comparison of two 2018 Toyota trucks, the mid-size Tacoma and full-size Tundra, tops the list of most watched videos. If you’re in the market for a pickup truck and are trying to determine which size of truck is right for you, it’s a must-watch.
