The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2021 Mazda CX-5 crossover has some priorities out of order; it doles out fine handling while it delivers a skimpy back seat. Sold simultaneously with the smaller CX-5, the 2023 CX-50 nudges Mazda off-road for the first time. The 2022 Toyota RAV4 lives up to its meat-and-potatoes hype, but the Prime serves up green-car red meat.
