The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

6.7

TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2022 Mazda CX-5 prioritizes style and handling over more familiar crossover traits like roominess. The 2023 Mazda CX-50 nudges toward a more rugged future, but agility’s still a strong suit. The 2022 Toyota RAV4 lives up to its meat-and-potatoes hype, but the Prime serves up green-car red meat.
