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

Taut ride and handling

Cons

Inferior infotainment
Cramped back seat
Average cargo space

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Less cargo space than key rivals, outdated infotainment system, punchy turbo four limited to top models.

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 name sounds odd, but the Touareg offers a comfortable ride and spirited performance—something we all can understand. Its 3.6-liter V-6 makes 280 hp and is mated to an eight-speed automatic and all-wheel drive. The Touareg is large, comfortable, and solid—plus it’s equally at home both on and off the pavement. A standard touchscreen infotainment display is functional but dated; the optional adaptive cruise control and automated emergency braking, however, are well engineered and effective.

3.5 tonne towing, real off-road ability
