As previously mentioned, RAV4, CRV and also Forester have steel wheels with plastic wheel covers on base trim. I didn't bother to check other competitors, suffice to say Mazda has put nice wheels even on base CX-5The 2023 CX-5 is still affordable. In Canada a base GS with std AWD is $33,360. By comparison a base CRV with AWD is $39,655 (OK equipment is not the same but still with steel wheels and wheel covers!) while a base HRV with AWD is $33,095. Bottom line, for the price of the HRV one can get a CX-5. This is a no brainer for me.
