Mazda is making only minor changes to the CX-5 for 2020. The company's i-Activsense suite of driver-assistance features is now standard across the lineup and includes automated emergency braking, pedestrian detection, lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, automatic high-beam headlamps, and more. All models receive a new key fob we expect to match that of the new Mazda 3 sedan and hatchback, as well as Mazda's newly updated fonts on interior switches and exterior badging. Grand Touring Reserve and Signature models receive a new 8.0-inch infotainment touchscreen display.

Pros
High-end experience, pleasing design, fun-to-drive nature.

Cons
Less cargo space than key rivals, outdated infotainment system, punchy turbo four limited to top models.

For 2020, Nissan makes only minor changes to the Murano lineup. This includes expanding the availability of its suite of safety and driver assists—called Nissan Safety Shield 360—to all models. The Murano SV now has standard adaptive cruise control, heated exterior mirrors, and rear parking sensors. The SL model adds traffic-sign recognition and the Platinum has a new leather-wrapped steering wheel. Super Black joins the list of paint colors.

Pros
Unmistakable appearance, luxurious interior, every model has cutting-edge content.

Cons
Indifferent driving experience, transmission exacerbates engine noise, minimal tow rating.
