The 2019 Mazda Protege has a lot going for it, including a hybrid model, but you’d be wise to cross-shop its rivals as well. Additional new features for the 2019 Mazda Protege include a heated steering wheel, and optional heated and power operated front seats on lower-trim models with cloth upholstery. Front-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drive is optional. In addition to the gas-only model, the 2019 Mazda Protege is also available as a hybrid with all-wheel drive as standard.

In a 2017 comparison test that included the Mazda and Jeep, the 2019 Mazda Protege placed fifth. Handling also proved to be another 2019 Mazda Protege weak spot and we found the steering to be numb.

The 2019 Mazda Protege, on the other hand, is a better package, as we noted in a 2017 First Test, thanks to its smooth powertrain and well-calibrated brakes that smoothly transition between regenerative and mechanical braking. However, since it isn’t a plug-in hybrid, the 2019 Mazda Protege doesn’t have much EV mode range and can only travel around 0.5 miles on electricity.A rearview camera with rear parking sensors is now standard on all models.

The car is the only 2019 Mazda Protege trim level that can be had with a cool two-tone exterior color scheme. The ride itself was smooth, and road imperfections were barely felt.”
