Why does the 2022 CX-5 outrank the 2023 CR-V?

A broad list of standard equipment, an exciting ride with responsive handling, and an upmarket interior all contribute to the 2022 Mazda CX-5's top rankings. 

 For instance, the whole interior selection comes standard with all-wheel drive.

The tiny back seat and below-average cargo room for the class are two potential reasons to stay away from the CX-5.

The 2023 Honda CR-V receives high marks for having a luxurious interior with plenty of room,

comfy first and second rows, a tonne of luggage capacity, 

 user-friendly technology,

the most dependable vehicle.
