The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Mazda CX-5 is one of the more athletic crossovers; high gas mileage and high style just add to the value. The 2016 Toyota RAV4 is a competent crossover utility with a new Hybrid model this year, updated safety systems, and lots of interior space.
