The Best Compact SUV You Can Buy
This week, one of my favorite publications - The Wirecutter, did an in-depth review of compact SUVs. In addition to test-driving 15 contenders, they poured over all the specs and consulted with auto experts to determine the winner - the 2016 Mazda CX-5 Touring.
I highly suggest you check out the full review (it's very long, but totally worth it if you're considering purchasing a compact SUV).
In summary, they found the Mazda CX-5 Touring to be fun-to-drive, packed with premium features, low ownership costs, and best of all - it was the second least expensive SUV in the bunch.
The 2015 Honda CR-V EX was also ranked highly, while the 2016 Subaru Forester 2.5i Premium with EyeSight was ranked the safest with it's full suite of advanced safety features.
My Recommendation for Car ShoppersTrueCar and Edmunds are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
