Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

When the Pilot’s too big and the CR-V is too small, the 2020 Honda Passport two-row crossover SUV is just the ticket.

Pros
Comfortable interior
Refined on the road
Decent off-road chops
Good 8.0-inch touchscreen on some models

Cons
9-speed automatic is a little confused
Expensive in top models
Not too adventurous in style
Not as tough as some may need

The Passport returns largely unchanged for 2020.

Pros
Spacious interior with lots of passenger space
Comfortable front seats
Enhanced off-road ability
Many clever storage compartments

Cons
Adaptive cruise control is only available over 20 mph
Driver's seat might be positioned a little too high for some people

For 2020, Honda doesn't make any meaningful changes to the Passport lineup. This is to be expected since the company just re-released the two-row crossover last year.

Pros
Loads of cargo and passenger space,
speedy powertrain,
copious standard driver assists.

Cons
Looks more rugged than it is,
only top trims have top options,
rides rough on bumpy roads.

The 2019 Mazda CX-5 ranked #1 in Compact SUVs. Currently the Mazda CX-5 has a score of 8.7 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 29 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Agile handling
Smooth ride
Powerful optional engine
Upscale cabin

Cons
Below-average cargo space
Awkward infotainment controls

By: 
usnews.com

For 2019, the CX-5 receives meaningful updates that include newly available features, a new top-of-the-line model, and its first-ever turbocharged engine. The latter announcement is the biggest news as we've previously lamented the Mazda's limited powertrain choices. The CX-5 now has an optional 250-hp turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder that pairs exclusively with all-wheel drive and can only be had on the top two models. This includes the all-new Signature model that has a host of luxurious features, such as additional wood and chrome accents inside, ambient interior lighting, brown leather upholstery, exclusive exterior bits, and a 360-degree camera system with front and rear parking sensors.

Pros
Feels more expensive than it is,
gorgeous styling inside and out,
captivating ride and handling.

Cons
Limited storage space,
dated infotainment,
top engine reserved for priciest models.

By:

Sharp style and sporting performance remain hallmarks of the 2019 Mazda CX-5, a small crossover SUV designed for those who enjoy a spirited drive. Excellent handling and a high-quality interior also help make it one of our top picks for a small SUV.More powerful engine for Grand Touring Reserve and Signature trims.Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration added.Newly available ventilated front seats and surround-view parking camera.

PROS
Keen handling and steering make the CX-5 enjoyable to drive
Attractive and upscale cabin for a premium ownership experience
New optional turbocharged engine provides plenty of power
Stays 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
