Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

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

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:

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

The 2018 Jeep Cherokee’s weak base engine power, below-average cargo volume, and low predicted reliability rating contribute to its place in the bottom half of our rankings. However, it does have some positives, such as a comfortable ride and admirable off-road abilities.

Pros
Comfortable, upscale cabin
Easy-to-use infotainment system
Remarkable off-road capabilities in this price range

Cons
Less cargo space than most compact SUVs
Underpowered base engine
Below-average fuel economy
Low predicted reliability rating

By: 
usnews.com

The 2018 Jeep Cherokee performs its crossover chores as asked, but loves the off-road tasks more.

Pros
Lovely cabin trim
Very good front seats
Trailhawk off-road skills
Lots of active-safety options
Good infotainment

Cons
Styling alternates from odd to derivative
Fuel economy is just okay
9-speed’s occasional hiccups
Interior space arrangement

By:

Go with the Trailhawk if your budget allows. While it's more expensive than most of the other Cherokee trim levels, its exclusive feature set makes the most of the Cherokee's off-road abilities, and that's the main reason to buy a Cherokee instead of another crossover in the first place.

PROS
Available V6 engine provides smooth and assertive power
Absorbent suspension smooths out rough surfaces
Capable and user-friendly 8.4-inch touchscreen on many models
Trailhawk offers unique off-road capability for a small crossover

CONS
Less cargo capacity than other small crossovers
Sluggish acceleration with four-cylinder engine
