COMPACT SUV: 2020 MAZDA CX-5 VS. 2020 HONDA CR-V
In 2019, the total annual sales of the Mazda CX-5 increased by 4.2 percent from 2018, making it the best sales year in its history. For the first time in Mazda Canada's history, the best-selling model of the year was not a regular car, as the CX-5 compact SUV made a breakthrough to become Mazda's best-selling model, with a significant sales lead over its regular best-selling model, the Mazda3 compact car. Overall, sales of the CX crossover line-up increased by 7.5%.
The 2020 Mazda CX-5 is becoming increasingly attractive to SUV consumers and is a top-selling compact SUV, tied for second with the Subaru Forester in Le Guide de l'Auto 2020!
L'Ami Junior Mazda in Chicoutimi, in the heart of the Saguenay region, tells you all about its 2020 Mazda CX-5 while making a few comparisons with the 2020 Honda CR-V to highlight its unique characteristics.
2020 CX-5 or 2020 CR-V?
First of all, the Mazda CX-5 boasts a very successful design, a varied engine line-up, but above all, a range of technologies that make this compact SUV a very pleasant vehicle to drive on Quebec roads, compared to the somewhat drabber Honda CR-V.
The Mazda CX-5 offers three engines: a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine with 187 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque; a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged engine that develops 227 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque; and a useful and economical diesel engine. For Honda CR-V enthusiasts, they'll have to settle for a single 1.5-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine producing 190 horsepower and 179 lb-ft of torque. It's actually the same engine as the Honda Civic. In short, the Mazda CX-5 gives you the choice and offers a more complete and better performance package than its rival.
What's more, the interior of the CX-5 is elegant and there are more luxury features in the 2020 model. It's roomy just like the CR-V, but with advanced features like Mazda Connect, numerous power settings, USB ports, Wi-Fi connectivity, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and a color touch screen, the CX-5 is both attractive and innovative. In this compact SUV, you'll feel the smoothness of driving, you'll have at your disposal many storage spaces and you'll enjoy the comfort of a luxury SUV. All in all, the Mazda CX-5 presents in 2020 a more sophisticated design and an enhanced on-board layout. In its Signature version, you'll get abachi wood trim and Nappa leather seats. Even in the Touring version, the 2020 Honda CR-V doesn't offer as much.
In short, the 2020 Mazda CX-5 offers an inviting ride, is very versatile and user-friendly in urban areas, is easy to drive (with its SkyActiv G 2.5 system) and, above all, offers elegance, refinement, and power.
Finally, the 2020 Mazda CX-5 also stands out from its rival, the Honda CR-V, by its price. In the entry-level versions, it will be more advantageous to go with the CX-5 than the CR-V; it will cost you less and you will get a much more complete SUV than the CR-V. It's a good deal! The Mazda CX-5 is ahead of its rival in 2020 and has a clear lead.
