This year is turning out to be a particularly intriguing one for fans of the crossover. Anyone who has been on the hunt for one was treated to a trifecta of arrivals from some of the country's top manufacturers—the all-new Honda CR-V, Mazda CX-5, and Subaru XV.
The key words here are 'all-new'. And new they are, as each of the aforementioned nameplates offer significant improvements over their predecessors. The CR-V now comes available with seven seats and a turbodiesel engine, the CX-5 now packs Mazda's G-Vectoring tech, and the XV is built around Subaru's all-new global platform. Exciting stuff.
Honestly, you can't go wrong with either of the three. But we do have to ask which one offers the most bang for the buck in terms of specs. With this in mind, we've gathered all three models, choosing variants based on their price (hence the non-diesel, five-seat CR-V), and placed them next to each other in a neat little spec-by-spec infographic.
So based on the numbers, which of these Japanese crossovers would you go with?
