2017 Mazda CX-5 vs 2017 Toyota RAV4

Compact SUVs are a beloved type of vehicle in the automotive market. Combining the best attributes of mid to full-size sedans and full-size SUVs, a compact SUV also avoids their downfalls. From sedan models, a compact SUV cribs better handling and controls, fuel economy, and a more manageable size. From its larger brethren of full-size SUVs, a compact SUV takes it more practical size for carrying passengers and cargo, a tougher frame for safety standards, and a more powerful engine housed under its hood.

With all of its benefits, the automotive market has now become flushed with many compact cross-over SUV models over the past few years. While a compact SUV's benefits are impressive, it's still important to find the one vehicle among the many that's the right choice for you! You need to find the best offer in terms of features, comfort, power, and price!
