Which CX-5 is the Best?

We think the best value is the Touring trim with the optional Preferred Equipment package. This version gives you everything you'll need for both comfort and safety. We also feel the CX-5's ride is much better with the 17-in wheels. Find a Mazda CX-5 for sale

2019 MAZDA CX-5 vs the competition

2019 Kia Sportage -- The Sportage offers equally handsome styling, features and safety equipment, and also the options of a turbocharged engine, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The CX-5, however, offers a bit more room and superior ride and handling. 2019 Honda CR-V --The CR-V has more interior room, a larger cargo hold and gets better gas mileage. But the CX-5 can tow more weight (2,000 pounds vs 1,500), has a more upscale interior and more luxury options. 2019 Ford Escape -- The Escape is slightly smaller inside but offers better audio and infotainment features, more features on its lower trim models and a choice of three engines, including two turbocharged units. Used Subaru Outback -- A 2015-2017 Subaru Outback will give you more room, superior off-road ability, better ground clearance and a number of driver assists, including the excellent EyeSight system. The Outback also gets slightly better fuel economy.
