Top 3 Compact SUVs: Mazda CX-5 Stands Out!

The SUV segment, and more specifically the compact one continues to grow in popularity. As a result, automakers have plenty of models to choose from. In fact, there are so many choices that it can be hard to figure out which vehicles are worth the detour and which ones stand out for the right reasons. We’ll give you a top three of the SUVs you should look for and demonstrate how Mazda vehicles stand out in every way.

Baie-Comeau Mazda in the Côte-Nord region near Pointe-Lebel and Chute-aux-Outardes presents the best compact SUVs for this year’s model. If you’re looking for a new or used car for sale in Baie-Comeau, your dealer has an inventory of both new and used Mazda vehicles which are sure to please you! What’s more, the team knows how to offer you unparalleled service, both in the dealership and at the garage in Baie-Comeau, where our technicians take care of your vehicle from start to finish.


Most people looking for an SUV expect to find a vehicle that offers a comfortable and spacious interior and a smooth ride. The vehicles on this list have all of these qualities but discover how Mazda’s SUVs have been able to outdo themselves and their predecessors.


As much in appearance as at the finish line, this Mazda vehicle always comes first: not only is it the most elegant, it’s also the most powerful. Its curvaceous, aerodynamic lines offer a visual harmony and brilliance that cannot be missed, in addition to its sleek, distinctive grille.

With Mazda, looks don’t deceive: behind the wheel, the CX-5 SUV doesn’t disappoint, especially when you choose the 2.5 L, 250 horsepower, 320 lb-ft turbocharged engine! Intelligent all-wheel drive is also at the consumer’s choice, for better on-road traction and great off-road capabilities.

The SUV will not only provide you with fun, it will also provide a lot of safety, as it received the highest score from the IIHS, an honour few SUVs can boast. Advanced blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert are among the standard features, unlike other SUVs.


With some notable sales in the SUV segment, the RAV4 remains a good choice, but is its success mainly due to its seniority? Indeed, it’s been around for a long time and has certain qualities, such as its 1059-litre cargo capacity and low fuel consumption.

While it only consumes 8.2 L/100 km, it’s also much less powerful than the Mazda CX-5, with 203 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. It has good safety features, but it’s still inferior to the Mazda vehicle and, let’s face it, its appearance leaves us indifferent.


As the name suggests, the Forester is a good off-road SUV, with standard all-wheel drive (AWD) rather than as an option. Its fuel economy is also the same as RAV4, but there’s virtually no other advantage to choosing Forester over the other two.

It’s the least powerful of the trio, with 182 horsepower and 176 lb-ft of torque, so if you’re looking for driving pleasure, the Mazda CX-5 is still the best choice. What’s more, its interior materials are less luxurious than the latter, both in terms of appearance and comfort. After all, the Forester is just one SUV among many.

Still, its infotainment technologies are up to par and slightly more interesting than those of the RAV4, according to "Le Guide de l'auto 2021".

In the end, when you look at the characteristics of each vehicle, you quickly realize the Mazda CX-5 stands out from the rest. The other two are not bad choices, but the CX-5 combines fun, comfort, elegance both inside and out, and power in a remarkable way.


Whether you’re looking for a compact SUV like the CX-5 or any other size, you’re sure to find the Mazda vehicle you need at our dealership in Baie-Comeau! An exceptional team is waiting for you, ready to help you make the best choice while offering you advantageous promotions!
