The 2013 Honda CR-V vs. the 2013 Mazda CX-5
Why does the 2013 Honda CR-V crossover continue to remain near the top of the list for many Middletown and Newburgh drivers and their families? Signature Honda dependability goes hand in hand with a spacious cabin, lots of cargo space, and high performance. A sleek, streamlined design means it’s not bad to look at either.
The 2013 Mazda CX-5 is another similarly sized crossover to the current CR-V that drivers may also be considering. To help you make up your mind, let’s take a closerlook at the two CUV options.
The 2013 CR-V LX, the base trim, comes equipped with an Inline four-cylinder 2.4 L engine. This gives it a power output of 185 hp and 163 lb-ft or torque. This is compared with the 155 hp and 150 lb-ft offer on the base, CX-5 Sport model with the 2.0L 4-cylinder engine. Clearly, power lies in the owner of the Honda.
The CR-V also has a much greater cargo capacity. It has a base capacity of 37.2 cubic feet, and 70.9 cubic feet with the seats down. This is compared with the 34.1 and 64.8 cubic feet on the CX-5, respectively.
What increases the CR-V’s appeal is its great list of features. It has plenty of great standard options that do not come standard on the 2013 CX-5.
These features include:
- Honda’s i-MID system, including Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free calling, music streaming, vehicle diagnostics, and more
- A rearview camera, which makes backing up a bit safer
- A power lock/unlock for the tailgate
- A split second-row bench, giving you more storage options
