2019 Mazda CX-5 vs 2019 Honda CR-V
The 2019 Mazda CX-5 and 2019 Honda CR-V are two of the most popular compact crossover models on the market, and a great place to start your search. So, how do you know which one is better for you? From power to equipment, there’s one clear winner in this head-to-head comparison brought to you by Hubler Mazda, your trusted Mazda dealership serving Indianapolis, IN .
Entry-level Honda CR-V models come equipped with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that pushes out 184 horsepower with 184 lb-ft of torque. A powertrain upgrade is available in top trims, which increases output to a maximum 190 horsepower and 179 lb-ft of torque. By comparison, the Mazda CX-5 sweeps the competition. It comes standard with a 2.5-liter SKYACTIV®-G four-cylinder engine, which earns 187 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque. The 2019 Mazda CX-5 offers an engine upgrade as well, but it renders substantially more power than the Honda: a 2.5-liter SKYACTIV®-G turbo four-cylinder worth 250 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque.
This power advantage translates to a higher towing capacity. The Honda CR-V offers just 1,500 lb of maximum towing, while the Mazda CX-5 boasts over double that with a maximum 3,500-lb towing capacity.
When it comes to interior features, the Mazda CX-5 effortlessly takes the crown. It comes standard with a vibrant seven-inch touchscreen and a handy SMS text message audio delivery and reply function. The Honda CR-V only equips a five-inch touchscreen as standard, and its SMS text message function is available just in top trims. Both models offer smartphone integration and SiriusXM® satellite radio, but only the Mazda CX-5 provides the option for a heads-up display. This innovative system projects vital vehicle information right onto the windshield for easy viewing.
