The winner is 2019 Subaru Forester.
Both crossovers proved to be capable and well-executed.
Both offer a comfortable trip and a well-designed interior.
Finally, both Mazda and Subaru feel inadequate and could handle the additional torque that comes with the addition of a turbocharger.
The sleek looks of the Mazda CX-5 and the impressive interior are surely impressed. In addition, Mazda is on the edge of the best compact crossover on the market.
At the same time, the 2019 Forester really amazed us with its impressive set of standard assistive technology for drivers, standard all-wheel drive, a comfortable cabin and intelligent infotainment system.
Indeed, it was the best infotainment and standard safety technology that put Forester on top.
So, great and earned congratulations for the 2019 Subaru Forester.
But with the updated 2019 Mazda CX-5 on the road, this duo is ripe for revenge.
