The industry is moving fast as people demand better cars. Crossovers are in the fold, and we'll be seeing some complete makeovers or upgrades on the older models. Different people look for different things in a vehicle; generally, they look at factors like the price, available features, fuel economy, and comfort. Furthermore, most crossover consumers prefer a balance of all these factors, and that's why we have put them into consideration to help you walk away with the best crossover 2019 has to offer.
How good is the 2019 Honda CR-V?
This vehicle sold 360,000 units in the U.S. last year. It naturally comes first on our list since it is the best-sold crossover. It has been moving faster than Halloween candy. It is rather nimble for a compact vehicle, and it delivers 30 mpg combined. The CR-V is powerful, spacious and handsome. It is not an overstatement to say that the CR-V is the complete package. For 2019, we don't expect to see many changes since the CR-V is already winning with its current styling. All the CR-V trims come with plenty of safety features while the higher trims receive more active electronic systems. The upscale interior of the entry-level model is a major treat especially considering it only costs around $24,000. You'll spend about $32,500 on the Touring trim (it happens to be the top-of-the-line trim.
How do we rate the 2019 Jaguar I-Pace?
This British electric crossover is sweeter than candy; even the good old queen wouldn't mind a taste. You should expect around 400 horsepower and not less than 515 lb-ft of torque. The I-Pace can hit 60 mph in approximately 4 seconds. The manufacturers want to give the Tesla Model X a run for its money. Going by their price tag of more than $100,000, the manufacturers are positioning this future EV to be one of their high-end models. I can already see a lot of Liverpool football fans driving this vehicle on their way to watch Mo Salah in Anfield.
What should I know about the 2019 Mazda CX-5?
We love Japanese cars, and this one doesn't disappoint. With around 110,000 units sold every year in the U.S., the CX-5 is one of the good sellers in the class. Driving this car is like dancing salsa with a pro; even your cat has nothing on the agility of this vehicle. It makes its competitors look like little kids when it comes to handling and fun driving dynamics. The changes on this car will be minimal. It will have a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine that produces 187 horsepower. The gearbox is a 6-speed automatic. During light load situations, you can save fuel with the help of the cylinder deactivation feature which shuts off two cylinders. The Mazda CX-5 remains one of the best 'head-turners' out there; in fact, if you're not careful, it might steal you from your girlfriend.
What about the 2019 Acura RDX?
'Sexy love, for the things you do... keep me running back to you.' The new RDX reminds me of Neyo's 'Sexy Love ' song because it has the face and the curves. This intermediate luxury crossover has a fresh A-Spec sporty treatment. The RDX has a wheelbase that is 2.5-inch longer and a width of 1.2 inches. The height has remained the same, but the hallmark beak grille now belongs in the history books. The 2019 version is a glimpse at what the brand will look like moving into the future.
What does the 2019 Infiniti QX50 offer?
One of the Infiniti QX50's strongest selling points is its affordable price that starts at $37,500. Just like other refreshed Infinitis, the 2019 version will come with a fresh design. This will be the first production vehicle that will feature tech features that will improve performance and fuel economy. The new QX50 has fixed its lack of space issues since it is bigger than its predecessor.
