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

2020 MAZDA CX-5 vs the competition

2020 Kia Sportage -- The Sportage offers equally handsome styling, features and safety equipment, with options for adding a turbocharged engine, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The CX-5, however, offers a bit more room, as well as superior ride and handling. 2020 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. 2020 Ford Escape -- The Escape is all new this year, with a larger interior, more engine options -- including a hybrid -- and more features. However, it's too new to know about long-term reliability or resale yet. Used Subaru Outback -- A 2014 to 2018 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.
