2019 Mazda CX-5 vs. 2019 Honda CR-V

Either a Honda CR-V or a 2019 Mazda CX-5 might be the compact SUV that Nazareth drivers are looking for, with standard front-wheel drive, plenty of cargo space, and a roomy interior. However, upon closer inspection, you’ll find the Mazda CX-5 has a stronger engine, higher towing capacity, and more standard safety than the new Honda CR-V. Learn more about each and see why the Mazda CX-5 is the model we recommend driving home to Allentown.

Mazda CX-5 vs. Honda CR-V: Performance

Take a look at the power under the hood to see which compact SUV can give you the power you need on Bethlehem adventures:

  • Engine: The Mazda CX-5 comes standard with a 187-hp SKYACTIV®-G 2.5L 4-cylinder engine rated at 186 lb-ft of torque. The Honda CR-V is equipped with a 184-hp 2.4L inline-4 rated at 180 lb-ft of torque.
  • Fuel Economy: The CR-V earns 26 mpg city/32 mpg highway, and the Mazda CX-5 earns 25 mpg city/31 mpg highway.
  • Towing Capacity: You can tow more with the Mazda CX-5–it has a towing capacity of 2,000 pounds, while the CR-V manages just 1,500 pounds.

Mazda CX-5 vs. Honda CR-V: Safety Features

Though the CR-V sports Honda Sensing technologies, which is a bundle of intelligent driver assists including lane departure warning and collision warning with automatic braking, you’ll need to opt for a higher trim level in order to get these features. The Mazda CX-5, however, comes with plenty of standard driver assist technologies even on the base model. These include:

  • Smart City Brake Support – operates between 2 and 18 mph, and warns you when you’re approaching a vehicle too quickly on Allentown roads.
  • Advanced Blind Spot Monitoring – alerts you when a vehicle enters your blind zone.
  • Rear Cross-Traffic Alert – notifies you of vehicles approaching from the side as you’re backing out of a parking space.

Mazda CX-5 vs. Honda CR-V: Reviews

Both the Mazda CX-5 and the Honda CR-V have received favorable reviews from leading automotive critics. Edmunds, a popular car resource, declares that the CX-5’s styling “makes rival midsize SUVs seem generic by comparison.”

Reviews of the Honda CR-V are favorable, as well. Edmunds likes the Honda SUV’s “capable acceleration, composed handling, and confident highway manners.” However, they also recommend you “skip the base LX model” in order to get the features you need.
