Compare the New Mazda CX-5 and the Honda CR-V in Jacksonville, FL

A mid-sized crossover SUV can be a fantastic way for both you and your family to get around, but not all crossovers are worthy of the chance to become a part of your family. The right mid-sized model must be spacious and comfortable, with a lot of safety, and just the right amount high-tech conveniences to help you along the journey. The all-new Mazda CX-5 can be just the mid-sized crossover that you need to get ahead in life, with style and sophistication to match! With its efficient engine, high-tech conveniences, and luxurious comfort, the Mazda CX-5 definitely goes above and beyond what you would expect from a mid-sized Crossover SUV. However, smart shoppers like you deserve more than simple words, which is why we here at Tom Bush Mazda in Jacksonville, Florida, want to prove it to you by putting this crossover SUV together head-to-head against another well-known mid-sized model of its class: the Honda CR-V. As you will see, the Honda CR-V does fall short of the Mazda CX-5 in a lot of ways, despite the Honda brand's status as a practical and family-friendly brand. So, let's see how these two crossovers compare, shall we?

The Mazda CX-5 vs The Honda CR-V

  • While both of these crossover SUV models come standard with inline four-cylinder engines underneath their respective hoods, you will find that the engine of the Mazda CX-5 has a bit more capacity for oil and generates a lot more horsepower as you cruise to Brunswick, GA or Ponte Vedra Beach. Its engine is also paired with an interactive automatic transmission, which you can customize to suit your driving habits; this feature is unavailable on the Honda CR-V.
  • The Mazda CX-5, as with many other new Mazda models, comes standard with Smart City Brake Support, which provides much more intuitive assistance to the antilock brakes than the average brake assist system. The Honda CR-V comes standard with a less intuitive Brake Assist.
  • While their fuel efficiency specifications are fairly evenly matched, the Mazda CX-5 holds a bit more fuel in its tank than does the Honda CR-V. A difference in fuel capacity can make a noticeable difference for those with a frequent commute to and from Saint Augustine.
  • When it comes to the safety of you and your passengers, the Mazda CX-5 comes standard with a great deal of excellent driver-assistive features in all of its trim levels, such as the Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS), Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM), Forward Obstruction Warning (FOW), and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA). While the Honda CR-V does come available with equivalents to these features, courtesy of Honda Sensing®, they are only available with the purchase of a higher trim level and an additional fee.
  • All trim levels of the Mazda CX-5 come available with such convenient gadgets as a universal garage door opener, remote engine start, remote decklid and tailgate release, and telematic systems. All of these features are either absent from the base trim levels of the Honda CR-V or are absent from the SUV entirely.
  • While the base trims of both these crossover SUVs feature interior cloth upholstery, the Mazda CX-5 also features a leather-wrapped steering wheel and a leather-wrapped gear selector in all trim levels, giving you maximum comfort and letting you steer through the streets of Riverside with the greatest of ease. These features must be upgraded on the Honda CR-V with the purchase of a higher trim level.
  • Finally, the Mazda CX-5 is the more lightweight of the two crossover SUVs, overall, according to its gross vehicle weight ratio (GVWR), which is the calculated weight of the SUV when factoring in additional weight from passengers and cargo. The more lightweight of the two vehicles will always be the more fuel-efficient model in the long run and will accelerate much more responsively.
