Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

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:

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

The 2021 Tesla Model Y's #7 ranking is based on its score within the Luxury Hybrid and Electric SUVs category. Currently the Tesla Model Y has a score of 7.6 out of 10, which is based on our evaluation of 15 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Quick and agile
Spacious, comfortable seats
Good cargo capacity

Cons
No physical controls for vehicle functions
Poor cabin assembly quality
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto not available

By: 
usnews.com

Introduced, and then discontinued, Standard Range version.Seven-seat configuration now available.

Pros
Plenty of range
Stunning acceleration, especially from the Performance model
Convenient Supercharger network for long-distance driving
Roomy seating front and rear

Cons
No Apple CarPlay or Android Auto smartphone integration
Performance model's overly stiff ride
Optional third row of seats is barely usable

By: 
edmunds.com

Other than the introduction of an optional pair of pop-up third-row jump seats, we aren't forecasting any major design or technology upgrades for the Model Y this year.

Pros
Peppy electric powertrain,
spacious cargo hold,
cutting-edge technology features.

Cons
Chassis isn't as taut as the four-door Model 3,
fit-and-finish needs polish,
too reliant on the touchscreen for simple vehicle settings.
