SUV buyers are more spoiled for choice nowadays than ever before. Sport utility vehicles come in all shapes and sizes, not to mention there’s one for every budget out there.
Naturally, with so many choices available some customers find it hard to make a decision but that’s what comparison reviews are for, right. Say you’re in the market for a compact SUV but you don’t have money for a full-blown luxury model.
At the same time, you don’t want an entry-level model either. Something in-between those two extremes would fit your needs, preferably closer to premium than mainstream.
There are obviously many SUVs that fit the bill but Redline Reviews decided to narrow it down to three models: the mainstream but well-equipped 2019 Subaru Forester, premium 2019 Cadillac XT4, and fully-loaded 2019 Mazda CX-5 Signature. You will argue the latter is the only one that fits the bill, since the Cadillac is a premium model and the Subaru is a mainstream SUV.
You’d be right, but not entirely. You see, even a mainstream model like the Forester can these days be equipped with premium features and still be a lot cheaper than a base luxury model. Sure, it won’t quite feel like a premium vehicle but you’ll save a lot of money. That’s where the Mazda CX-5 comes in. While the range-topping Signature model costs almost as much as a base Cadillac XT5, it offers way more features for the money.
It appears that the CX-5 should be the logical winner in this company but you should watch the video because choosing the best SUV here is not that simple.
