Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2021 Hyundai Kona Electric is hard to find in some U.S. markets, but it's one of the best affordable long-range electric vehicles.

PROS
Fun to drive
Strong active safety tech
Range rating of 258 miles
Possibly around $30k after incentives
Excellent feature set

CONS
All-wheel drive isn’t an option
Busy styling
Difficult availability

By:

Hyundai has made exactly zero changes to the Kona Electric for the 2021 model year.We'd recommend the mid-range Limited. It adds a host of desirable features, including a sunroof, leather upholstery, LED exterior lighting, automatic high-beam headlamps, a wireless smartphone-charging pad, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.

PROS
Playful handling,
long driving range,
fantastic standard warranty.

CONS
Small back seat,
front-wheel drive only,
cold temperatures sap battery capacity.

The Kona Electric carries over unchanged.

PROS
Driving range of 258 miles
Quick acceleration and sharp handling make it fun to drive
Comfortable and quiet cabin
Plenty of standard tech features

CONS
Tight rear legroom
Availability limited to a handful of states

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.

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
