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.

Nissan hasn't changed anything on its smallest crossover for 2019. The Kicks was all-new for 2018 and replaced the quirky Juke.

Pros
Wonderfully efficient powertrain,
Costco-size cargo space,
charming design.

Cons
Slow in our testing,
driver-assistance features limited to the basics,
warranty is nothing special.

Cons
