The Honda CR-V and Mazda CX-5 have the distinct honor of being our previous Utility Vehicle of the Year winners, but as the years go by and the new models are considered old, they lose a bit of their luster. But they’re invaluable tools when measuring the progress of other new vehicles today. We brought out the former winners to compare to the new and improved Subaru Forester, to see just how good the crossover market is, and whether the newest model is the best.

I was looking to purchase the 19 CRV, but found out that the 17 and 18 CRVs are having oil dilution, stalling, and battery issues due to the 1.5 liter turbo engine. Has this issue been fixed with the 19 CRV?

okay, all three cars are beautiful, and they all live up to standards, including the 2018-19 CX-5, but Honda is still kinda my style (I know I’m very bland but yeah lmao) . All 3 cars are stunning, and gorgeous though.

I originally wanted to go with the CRV Honda but I don't want to deal with the oil dilution issue.

The Honda CR-V is faster 0-60 than the Forester or the CX-5 with base engine of them per the stats out there. I see times of 0-60 in the 7.3 to 7.8 second range posted. If it's quicker, how is it more boring than the Subaru? Is the Subaru actually quicker or does the Subaru feel quicker even if it can't beat the CR-V on pedal to the floor 0-60 times? By the way, it's fine that you didn't review the 2019 Turbo CX-5. Not a fair comparison. The Turbo is quite a bit more $$$. The entry level leather trims, Honda CR-V EX-L and Subaru Forester Limited are thousands less than the Turbo CX-5 and come almost loaded. I would like to see a comparison of those "Limited" trims just below the grand pubah top trims of the three of these. That's where a lot of buyers spend their dollars.

Why there's No Toyota Rav 4? What are you doing AutoGuide??

New RAV wasn't available until much after we filmed this. We did a RAV4 vs Forester video recently, check it out! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tZ4leHtq2Kk

This was an awful review, I have a 2019 Mazda CX-5 GT Turbo and it has apple CarPlay and android auto. You reviewed a 2018 model and make no mention of that fact in your review, very disappointing and deceptive review. Definitely a thumbs down. Get your info right if you plan on reviewing cars instead of giving out false inaccurate info. Useless!

Thanks for watching! We shot this before the CX-5 was refreshed. The outcome would have been the same though.

As a twin, I would really like to test the accuracy of the Subaru’s facial recognition memory, seeing if it can tell the difference between my brother and I. Maybe the first test with one of us sporting facial hair, and the other being cleanly shaved, and then a second test with both of us cleanly shaven.

Yes! We've heard stories about the system getting confused like this!
