Mazda CX-5 vs. Hyundai Tucson

  • The impeccable engineering of the Mazda CX-5 delivers a better driving feel and more efficient ride than the Hyundai Tucson. Its 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine packs more horsepower and gets an EPA-estimated 31 mpg highway, which beats out any engine the Tucson offers.
  • Whether you look at its advanced safety features, like blind spot monitoring and Smart City Brake Support that come standard, or its safety honors, such as the 2018 Top Safety Pick+ award from the IIHS, the 2018 Mazda CX-5 beats out the Hyundai Tucson in passenger safety.
  • The Mazda CX-5 also comes standard with a range of other premium features, like LED headlights, an electric braking brake, and a 7-inch touchscreen, that the Hyundai Tucson does not.

Mazda CX-5 vs. Honda CR-V

  • Bethel car shoppers looking for value will find that the Mazda CX-5 has a lower starting price than the Honda CR-V while coming standard with better features, like LED headlights and a touchscreen display, that aren't found in the base model Honda CR-V.
  • The capable engine of the Mazda CX-5 houses more horsepower and torque for drivers to take advantage of, which is probably why those drivers can tow more weight with the CX-5 than they can with the Honda CR-V.
  • There is some ridiculously advanced technology available in the Mazda CX-5, from an active driving head-up display to Hill Launch Assist to a driver's seat memory system, none of which are available with the Honda CR-V.


Mazda CX-5 vs. Nissan Rogue

  • The Mazda CX-5 wants to make sure every passenger that rides in it is comfortable, which is why it offers features like heated rear seats for when winter comes. The Nissan Rogue doesn't offer heated rear seats, and it also falls behind the Mazda CX-5 regarding the amount of leg, head, and hip room for the rear row.
  • With clear advantages in horsepower and torque, a better transmission, and other engineering facets like torque vectoring, the Mazda CX-5 is much more fun to drive than the Nissan Rogue.
  • The standard and available driver-assist systems in both models are nearly identical, but that's where the safety similarities stop as the Mazda CX-5 earned a 5-Star Overall Front Star Rating in the NHTSA's crash test ratings whereas the Nissan Rogue earned four stars in the same metric.
