CR-V vs. CX-5: Battle of the Compact SUV Leaders

Sales of compact SUVs are booming, and two of the powerhouses in the segment are the Honda CR-V and the Mazda CX-5. Both have been redesigned for 2017, gaining new safety and technology features without sacrificing the utility that has made them so popular.

The two vehicles have identical base prices of $24,045 and earn spots at the top of our rankings of compact SUVs, which are updated continuously to reflect new expert reviews and data.
