Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Honda HR-V blends great rear-seat flexibility and gas mileage, but it’s slow.

Pros
Makes the most of its size
Lots of standard equipment
Great gas mileage
Shift it yourself, if you like
Composed, absorbent ride

Cons
Thin acceleration
Crash-test scores are mixed
Doesn’t offer latest safety tech
Road manners: meh

The 2018 Honda HR-V ranked #3 in Subcompact SUVs. Currently the Honda HR-V has a score of 8.2 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 31 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Adult-friendly back seat
Versatile cargo area

Cons
Awkward available touch screen
Firm front seat cushions
Slow to reach highway speeds

Honda’s mini ute switches to 2018 with a new paint color—Aegean Blue Metallic—and a new dark-colored wheel design on EX and EX-L trims. Other than that, the HR-V sees no other changes, mechanical or otherwise.

Pros
Fuel-efficient powertrain,
cargo-hauling leader,
handsome styling.

Cons
Lackluster acceleration,
frustrating infotainment system,
short on small-item storage.

The 2017 Mazda CX-5 ranks 2 out of 18 Compact SUVs. The 2017 Mazda CX-5 ranks near the top of the compact SUV class for its outstanding performance, comfortable passenger space, high-quality interior, and laudable features.

Pros
Fantastic performance
Smooth ride
Upscale cabin
Roomy and comfortable seats

Cons
Average engine power
Low predicted reliability rating

By:

The 2017 Mazda CX-5 has been fully redesigned. Though its dimensions haven't changed, it's smoother and quieter to drive. Other improvements include sharper styling, a more upscale cabin and some new features. Its engine and automatic transmission are largely carried over, though last year's manual transmission is no longer available.

Pros
Keen handling and steering make the CX-5 enjoyable to drive
Attractive and upscale cabin for a premium ownership experience
Quieter on the highway than before

Cons
Not as powerful as some rivals

By: 
edmunds.com

The 2017 Mazda CX-5 takes a lot of small steps forward, but are any of them big enough changes to sway buyers?
The 2017 Mazda CX-5 is new this year, and improves upon last year's model with a better interior and exterior look, quieter ride, a new-ish standard engine, and a coming turbodiesel that could be among the leaders for small crossovers in highway mileage. It's offered in Sport, Touring, and Grand Touring trims with varying levels of creature comforts.

Pros
Best-looking compact crossover, by our eyes
Improved interior
Excellent driveability
Fold-flat rear seats

Cons
Not dramatically different than outgoing model
Turbodiesel arriving later this year
Finicky infotainment system
Small-ish cargo area
