One of the best things about iPhone 5/5s is that it's the same width as iPhone 4/4S and also the latest iPhone SE. This makes most of the car mounts – which could include yours too – that worked with the iPhone 4/4S fit the iPhone 5/5s and iPhone SE too (unless they're specific-designed).
But if you’re looking to buy a new one for any number of reasons, we've got some curation going on here. We've handpicked some of the most popular – but not brand-type – iPhone SE, 5s, and 5 car mounts and holders. (Also Check: Best iPhone 6 Car Mounts.)
The best car mounts for iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s aren't really the ones that have a brand-name tagged to them. Many of them are on Amazon or eBay and work just perfectly.
Here's a list of such genuinely high-quality and best iPhone SE, 5s, and 5 car mounts. Note that some of these fit the dash, some fit the windscreen. Choose depending on your need.
Best iPhone SE, 5s, and 5 Car Mounts
#1. Aduro U-GRIP
Aduro U-GRIP (U is for Universal) is a multiple-compatibility car mount. It works with many smartphones, iPhone 5/5s being one of them. What strikes as interesting is the minimalism of the dashboard car mount. There's almost no hype here. The design is simple and there's no distraction: reviews point out that the iPhone 5/5s fits neatly to the grip and the suction clutches to the dashboard under all conditions. And then there's the 360-deg viewing angle.

#2. iOttie Easy View
iOttie is outrageously popular on Amazon and has a ton of great reviews. The iOttie Easy View has a very clean modernist design which gels well with the looks of the iPhone 5/5s. This case is for people who are conscious of the style, besides the function. Also, it's quite affordable.

#3. iMagnet Cradle-less
iMagnet Cradle-less iPhone 5/5s car mounts might sound a little risky to look and use but they're at the forefront of technical prowess. And they look pretty cool tool. Imagine a cradle-less, magnet-powered car mount? The case, no matter how risky it sounds, appears to work perfectly for a lot of users; and has a 4.5 star rating which is quite good.

#4. Kensington Quick-Release
Another minimal product, this one is a windshield iPhone 5/5s car mount which is actually a universal car-mount for iPhones. So it fits the 4S too but if you're looking for the iPhone 5, it's a pretty good choice. The product prides itself of the ease-of-use and so the name (Quick-release). We've seen a lot of good reviews for Kensington's Quick-Release iPhone 5/5s car mount.

#5. Mountek nGroove Universal
Mountek mGroove is one of the most unconventional iPhone 5/5s car mounts you'll ever see. But the only reason we've got that on our list is its cheap but works very good. The mGroove Universal actually fits any iPhone (or smartphone for that matter). It's adjustable. But it is not the usual suction-based car mount. It mounts on the CD slot. Downside: don't have a CD-slot? Not for you. Benefit: really low-cost. Fits anything.
Price: $24.78 on Amazon at the time of writing this.

Jamron car mount is somewhat different from others. Instead of a suction cup, this car mount has to be fixed in the CD slot, which is a little nearer than the dashboard. The iPhone holder is cushioned with plastic that doesn't hurt your previous device. In addition, you can slide your iPhone even with a case on it. Lastly, it supports full 360-degree rotation.
