2013 Mazda CX-5
The compact crossover market just got a bit more competitive with the introduction of the 2013 Mazda CX-5, the long-awaited replacement for the aging Tribute SUV.
The compact crossover market is red-hot right now, with about 50 models to choose from. Kia introduced its new Sportage last year. Honda dealers are just getting their new CR-Vs. Ford is about to debut its new Escape and Toyota is expected to announce a new RAV-4 by the fall.
Mazda is in the right place at the right time, with an aggressively styled crossover that draws on Mazda's design "language" that brought us the Mazda3.
