The 2014 Honda CR-V vs. the 2014 Mazda CX-5
If you’re in the market for a small crossover SUV then why not see for yourself why previous versions of the 2014 Honda CR-V have been the best selling SUV in the country. Here at Middletown Honda, we’re happy to let you test-drive the new CR-V now – we’re confident you’ll be impressed with its blend of style, efficiency, and comfort.
We think it’s an easy choice, but you might also be considering the 2014 Mazda CX-5. While the CX-5 is a fine choice, we think that the CR-V is simply a better vehicle. Read on to find out why.
What Crossover SUV Comes Out on Top?
Passenger Space: one of the major reasons you’re choosing a CUV over a sedan is probably passenger volume. When choosing a model, you want the most you can get. The CR-V simply has more room: 104.1 cubic feet vs. the 103.8 cubic feet in the Mazda. That means more leg room up front and shoulder room both front and rear.
- Cargo Space: another major reason you’re choosing and SUV over a sedan is cargo space. You want the room to not only carry five passengers but their luggage as well! Well, the CR-V wins out again with 37.2 cubic feet compared to the 34.1 cubic feet in the Mazda. With all seats folded down the CR-V has a total of 70.9 cubic feet vs. the 64.8 cubic feet of the CX-5.
- Versatility: the CR-V also makes the most out of that cargo space with a split 60/40 folding bench seat in back. That way you can have the combination of cargo and seating that you need.
- Safety: the CR-V gets a rearview camera standard. That’s especially important for backing up and parking, and even more important with small children or pets around. That feature isn’t even available on the Mazda.
- Power: the CR-V gets a 2.4L four-cylinder good for 185 hp. The Mazda CX-5 gets a 155 hp 2.0L in the base model and a 184 hp 2.5L in the upgraded more expensive models.
