2015 Toyota RAV4 and 2015 Mazda CX-5
The drivers of the Chicagoland area know that sometimes you need a vehicle that can do little more than the average sedan. Though it is the Chicago area it still snows and rains. So it helps to have capable vehicles like the 2015 Toyota RAV4 and 2015 Mazda CX-5. Continental Motors is offering these two incredible vehicles, which will safely carry you along the word in any condition. Not only are they capable, they are also compact and have a solid fuel economy, which means their performance doesn’t come at a high price.
In this segment of compact SUVs there are many options for drivers. Each of these two models not only offers style and comfortable interiors, but solid ground clearance to help clear obstacles. And though the 2015 Mazda CX-5 has slightly higher ground clearance, the 2015 Toyota RAV4 has a little more cargo space. This doesn’t make one compact SUV better than the other, but it does create options.
