Who wins the compact crossover battle?

The compact crossover has slowly become one of the most popular segments in North America, replacing small sedans and hatchbacks in many driveways. The popularity is driven by the fact that these crossovers offer more functionality than small cars without a huge compromise in fuel economy or purchase price. As a result, the segment continues to grow as more and more consumers get into a compact crossover.

However, the CX-5 has a list of advantages over the Forester and in this article, we take a look at what makes the Mazda better than the Subaru.
