CX-5 - Rav4 Comparison Review - 2019
Looks like a keeper. IMO there is no doubt Mazda has/is stepping up their game.
My wife and I recently completed some CUV shopping back in October last year. Granted, our price range had us looking at nothing newer than 2016-17 models. We test drove the Forester, HRV, CRV, Crosstour, C-HR, RAV4, BMW X1, Soul, CX-3 and the CX-5.
The RAV-4 was nice, but very plain and the opposite of interesting to drive (or look at). It really was just another vanilla flavor of the CRV. Wouldn't offend anyone, but also doesn't stand out in any way.
We ended up with a 2016 CX5 GT in titanium flash mica. My wife isn't an automotive enthusiast, but this car actually has her taking a look back at it after parking. She really loves the thing.
Edit: I guess I should probably add (though this'll begin to convey how young I am), when shortly after I got my license and before I bought my first car, I spent a great deal of time driving my mom's 2017 Rav4 hybrid around. It wasn't bad by any stretch of the imagination, and the fuel economy and spaciousness didn't go unnoticed, but overall I didn't get the same feeling I get when in a Mazda. My 2014 6 feels more premium and modern despite being a good three years older and my friend's 2014 CX-5 feels the same way.
