TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2019 Honda CR-V rewards owners with fantastic utility and great safety scores. The 2019 Mazda CX-5 sates solo drivers with good handling and tasteful lines, but bigger families will want to move up in size. The 2019 Subaru Forester is a well thought-out crossover SUV with exceptional space, a great ride, and standard AWD without a fuel-economy penalty.
