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."

Handling Ranked 2019 Mazda CX-5 Touring AWD better.
