The 2020 Mazda CX-5 trades family-ready space for fine handling and good power.

Cons

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Less cargo space than key rivals, outdated infotainment system, punchy turbo four limited to top models.

This year is expected to the be the last before a major redesign for the Rogue Sport, so Nissan has made only slight adjustments to the lineup for 2021. The base S trim gains standard 17-inch aluminum wheels while the mid-range SV receives heated front seats, a remote start system, a heated steering wheel, fog lamps, and a leather-wrapped shift knob.

spacious cabin,
fuel efficient engine.

Poky acceleration,
low-tech infotainment system,
lacks towing capacity.
