Fun To Drive Mazda CX 5 Crossover Has Lots Of Technology, Room For Five

The 2019 Kia Sportage and Mazda CX-5 make their ways in the compact crossover class by taking similar paths. They’re both reasonably priced, stylish, and comfortable, and they’re both fun to drive, with responsive engines and optional turbocharged upgrades. The Mazda leans a bit sportier and tighter on the suspension, with the Kia emphasizing comfort and a smooth ride. Consider their reasonable starting prices, both of these also pack in a lot of luxury, with the added bonus of good build quality and reliability.

They both do many things very well, but interestingly enough, their shortcomings are similar as well, with neither the Kia nor the Mazda being the space leader in the class, although they both can seat five in a pinch. They also offer all-wheel drive, but there are certainly better choices if you frequently drive past where the pavement ends.

Mazda CX-5 Advantages

Final Recommendation

It’s hard to go wrong with either of these compact crossover SUVs if you’re looking for a fun, sporty engine, stylish looks, good build quality and luxury features. As a result, neither is the clear winner. The Kia has a significantly longer warranty and a smoother ride, but the Mazda is a bit more fun to drive and has marginally better fuel economy. They’re both certainly worth a test-drive.
