It should be obvious that the 2019 CX-5 holds an upper hand over its Trax counterpart in just about every regard, from its available tech innovations (including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto) to the wealth of luxury features you’ll find inside (heated and ventilated leather seats and Dual-Zone climate control, just to name a couple). But where the 2019 Mazda CX-5 really shines is in its ability to protect you and your passengers from harm – it's been named an IIHS Top Safety Pick, a designation that the Trax simply can’t equal. All in all, you can’t go wrong with a Mazda vehicle!
