What it is: Since its launch in 2012, the Mazda CX-5 compact SUV has been a hit for the Japanese brand, accounting for a quarter of Mazda sales around the world. The CX-5 was fully redesigned last year and delivers an above-average driving experience. It competes with the Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4 and Ford Escape.
