2017 Qashqai SL AWD

Nissan's 2017 Qashqai  is for those who love the Rogue or Rav4 but want something slightly smaller, or for those who find the HRV CX-3 and CHR too small. As this one of the larger vehicles in the sub compact category we can see it being advantageous for passenger comfort when taking long road trips

2017 Mazda CX-5 GT

Mazda's 17 CX-5 is in my opinion the most attractive, and tunes to be the fun to drive crossover in North America. The attention to detail in the interior is well designed for the driver especially. Nearly every part of the 2017 model has been tweaked in some way to address buyer complaints from last years model. I feel like Mazda has taken an approach to make the car have a luxury feel yet affordable price tag for the mainstream market.

2017 Mazda MX-5 RF GT

Mazda's 17 MX-5 RF GT is not the most practical car, but it is no doubt a car lovers dream to drive. The steering feel is so accurate with communicating to the driver what the car is feeling.  This is a car made for people who love driving and the price is affordable! I would recommend trying the soft top if you love driving. You'll save 100 lbs making the car even more agile! Personally I think the hard top looks cooler but Mazda spent all the R&D to make the vehicle as light as possible, I feel the soft top is the better option for those who just want to have the full experience of having fun on the road

2017 Mazda6 GT

Mazda's 17 Mazda6 GT is one of the least powerful cars in its segment but there is no doubt that it is the most fun to drive. It is the most responsive and sportiest. The car is mouth watering, elegant and classy! It puts a smile on my face every time I sit behind the  wheel. This isn't just a car that takes me from point a to b, but a car that makes me want to burn rubber! The lack of option for a v6 is definitely hurting it in terms of sales but it is not a deal breaker for me. Mazda differentiates itself by tuning their vehicles for a heighten sense of fun for the driver.

2017 Honda Pilot Touring

Honda's 17 Pilot reminds me a lot of the Acura's 17 MDX but a cheaper version. Come winter, windshield wipers can get icy, making it difficult to keep the windshield clear. The Pilot's front wiper de-ice heats up the bottom of the windshield to help keep its wipers clear of slush and ice. The heated side mirrors and available power folding mirrors are designed to conquer some of the harshest of elements, while fitting into some of the tightest of parking spots.
