Mazda CX-5

Not too big and not too small, the Mazda CX-5 has just what it takes to be a great crossover for road trips. It combines the flexibility of an SUV with the fun of a sports car and adds a dose of great fuel economy to make the trip affordable.

Mazda is known for making fun cars, and the CX-5 lives up to that reputation. Steering and handling are sharp, although the base engine isn’t a powerhouse. It does get good fuel economy as a consolation prize, with EPA estimates of 26 in the city and 35 mpg on the highway.

The CX-5 also packs in great features like a roomy trunk, seats that easily fold almost flat, and a privacy screen that will hide all your belongings. The interior quality is top-notch, with plenty of soft-touch surfaces and an uncomplicated infotainment system.
