Today we do a test drive comparison of the best SUVs in the midsize, five-passenger crossover segment. In the ring today is the 2021 Toyota RAV4 XLE Premium AWD, the 2021 Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring AWD, and the 2021 Subaru Forester Limited (which comes standard with symmetrical all-wheel-drive). Which one should you buy? Well...that depends. Watch on to find out.

A special thank you goes out to the following dealers for loaning me a car to drive:
Hawk Subaru:
2401 Route 59, Joilet, IL 60586
Toyota of Iowa City:
1445 IA-1, Iowa City, IA 52246
Carousel Mazda:
809 IA-1, Iowa City, IA 52246
I rank each of the SUVs in eight categories; they are as follows:
1. Value (Price and features of each vehicle)
2. Safety (Both active safety features and passive IIHS results)
3. Powertrain and performance (Engine, transmission, 0-60 time)
4. Fuel Economy (EPA rated fuel efficiency)
5. Reliability (Rated by Consumer Reports)
6. Functionality (How well the SUV performs intended function)
7. Driving Impressions (Subjective feel of comfort, NVH, engine and transmission, suspension)
8. Styling (How each SUV looks, from my point of view)

And here are the category breakdowns:
00:00 Introduction
2:06 Value (Forester)
5:20 Value (RAV4)
7:43 Value (CX-5)
10:59 Safety
12:54 Powertrain
15:35 Fuel Economy
16:39 Reliability
17:32 Function
19:21 Driving Impressions
31:26 Styling
37:39 Conclusion
