says:
Roomy with great visibility. More road noise than other comparable cards. The drivers window did seem like it closed properly. Great cargo space. Constant noise of transmission.

Back Seats Ranked 2019 Mazda CX-5 Signature AWD worse.
"Back seats in the CX-5 are fine for 2 people, but 3 in the back would not be comfortable for long trips. The USB outlets in the CX-5 are in the middle armrest, so I dont think Mazda intended the back seat to be used extensively to seat 3. The Forester was had plenty of room for 3 in the back."
Would Buy Ranked 2019 Mazda CX-5 Signature AWD better.
"The CX-5 felt like a luxury vehicle that is fun to drive and noticeably more quiet and more powerful. Theres nothing wrong with the Forester, its just kind of ho-hum in comparison."
