Ford Escape SE vs. Mazda CX-5 vs. Subaru Forester 2.5 Touring vs. Toyota RAV4
2013/2014 Compact Crossover Comparison - Motor Trend
The Escape got last place
Honestly the magazine can say what they like about Mazdas. I still don't trust them. On my street there are 3 broken mazdas that are rusted to death.
I've rented a Mazda 3 once and the engine felt like it was about to explode.
The new 184hp engine is a nice improvement over last years 155 (lame)
4th Place: Ford Escape SE
Overly complicated interior and disappointing performance seal its fate.
3rd Place: Toyota RAV4
A safe bet is not an exciting one, and others outperform this perennial top-seller.
2nd Place: Subaru Forester 2.5 Touring
Fun, nimbleness, and all-wheel drive security are on the plus side, but poor interior choices keep it from the winner's circle.
1st Place: Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring
A new engine powers this crossover to the top. Well-planned inside and out.
