While the crossover SUV segment is overflowing with reasonable options these days, the 2017 Mazda CX-5 and 2017 Honda CR-V both stand out from the pack. Already popular options in the segment, both of these models have been fully redesigned this year, making them even better picks for Vernon drivers. Still, while both models are sure to impress, Mazda’s crossover manages to beat out the Honda in a number of ways, making a strong case for itself as a segment leader. In fact, the Mazda CX-5 was just recently named the “Best Midsize Crossover” for 2017! See for yourself with the help of this comparison, and then make your way to our dealership to test drive the new Mazda CX-5.

Performance Capabilities

Under the hood of the 2017 Mazda CX-5 is a standard 2.5L inline-four engine that generates 187 hp and 185 lb-ft of torque. This model is offered with your choice of either front-wheel or all-wheel drive, and it’s capable of towing up to 2,000 pounds. The Mazda CX-5 is also surprisingly agile and responsive, thanks in great part to its standard SKYACTIV®-VEHICLE DYNAMICS with G-Vectoring Control, a technology that helps improve cornering by shifting the vehicle weight and delivering power where it’s most needed.

By contrast, the base engine on the Honda CR-V is a 2.4L four-cylinder that makes 184 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque. Max towing capacity on the CR-V is only 1,500 pounds, and sadly it’s not offered with the support of an advanced system like the Mazda CX-5’s SKYACTIV®-VEHICLE DYNAMICS with G-Vectoring Control.

Standard Features

Both of these new crossovers come standard with features like Bluetooth®, USB connectivity, full power features, and other typical conveniences, as well as an identical starting MSRP from $24,045*. If you’re looking for a bit more for your dollar, though (and who isn’t?), only the Mazda CX-5 comes standard with a cutting-edge infotainment system. The MAZDA CONNECT™ system comes standard with a 7-inch touchscreen and puts a variety of different features right at the fingertips of South Windsor drivers!
