Pros
Excellent fuel efficiency
Stacks of standard features, especially in top-specification Asaki model
Plenty of room inside for a growing family

Cons
Diesel engine can run out of breath when overtaking
Quality of 360-degree camera is very poor
Three year warranty with no roadside assistance starting to fall behind the pack

PROS
Premium interior, especially the top-level Signature trim
Sporty handling
Comfortable and quiet on the highway

CONS

Third-row seats aren't especially accommodating

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto finally join the spec sheet for 2019 and are standard on Touring, Grand Touring, and Signature trims. Mazda has included a list of other optional features for 2019 as well, which includes ventilated front seats, a 360-degree-view exterior camera system, SiriusXM Travel Link (live traffic and weather updates, among other things), a digital gauge display, power-folding exterior mirrors, and a frameless rearview mirror. The luxurious Signature trim now comes with a new wood trim inside and exclusive exterior badging.

Pros
Sweetest-driving three-row,
fuel-efficient powertrain,
near-luxury interior.

Cons
Compromised cargo room,
tight third row,
no second-row captain's chairs.
