The 2019 Honda CR-V rewards owners with fantastic utility and great safety scores.

Pros
Roomy, versatile interior
Excellent value
Comfortable ride
Lots of safety gear on most models
Classy overall feel

Cons
Weird looks
Base CR-V LX short on features
No thrill machine
Competitors are catching up

By:

For 2019, the CR-V is essentially unchanged.

Pros
Turbocharged engine delivers a rare combination of thrift and zest
Roomy interior with cavernous cargo capacity for this class
Rides comfortably yet handles corners athletically
Plentiful and thoughtful storage areas

Cons
Touchscreen can be finicky to use and lacks a separate tuning knob
Underwhelming base engine on the LX trim

By:

The 2021 Mazda CX-5 crossover has some priorities out of order; it doles out fine handling while it delivers a skimpy back seat.

Pros
Looks good inside and out
Taut ride and handling
Available turbo power
Decent value in most trims

Cons
Turbo lag
Moderate acceleration in base version
Cramped back seat
Inferior infotainment

By: 
thecarconnection.com

For 2021, the most notable upgrade made to the CX-5 is its new infotainment system. A 10.3-inch touchscreen now sits atop the dashboard instead of the smaller 7.0-inch display found on previous model years. The updated system features the new Mazda Connect interface, Mazda Connected Services (a Wi-Fi hotspot and access to remote vehicle functions through a smartphone app), and standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Pros
Luxury aura without the luxury price,
engaging driving behavior,
expeditious turbo engine.

Cons
Base engine accelerates leisurely,
competitors have more cargo space,
tows only 2000 pounds.

By:

New infotainment system with a larger screen.Remote monitoring and control through a smartphone app.Top Signature trim gains some new safety features.

PROS
Keen handling and steering make the CX-5 enjoyable to drive
Attractive and upscale cabin for a premium ownership experience
Optional turbocharged engine provides plenty of power
Quiet at highway speeds

CONS
Base engine's lackluster acceleration
Ride is a little firm for the class
Less rear legroom and cargo room than most competitors
