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.

Stays quiet at highway speeds

CONS
Base engine's lackluster acceleration
Ride is a little firm for the class
