The Mazda CX-5 versus the Honda CR-V in Columbus

  • While both are small crossover SUVs, the Mazda CX-5, more so than the CR-V, is designed to deliver peppy performance. The Mazda boasts quicker acceleration than the CR-V, thanks in part to a potent 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine.

  • The Mazda CX-5 is lightyears ahead of the CR-V when it comes to advanced safety features. While the CR-V can come equipped with some of the basics, the Mazda CX-5 offers the whole kit and caboodle with available automatic crash notification, adaptive cruise control, and remote door locking -- none of which is offered on the CR-V.

  • When you opt for the Mazda CX-5 base model with the larger engine, and you'll enjoy standard text message reading, voice controls, and a multifunction controller knob to access the seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system. Connectivity like this is reminiscent of a luxury vehicle, especially when you factor in the fancy center console knob. And none of these amenities are standard features on the CR-V.

  • The Mazda CX-5 is longer, wider, and taller than the CR-V with more headroom and legroom for both front and rear passengers. That's something the entire family will appreciate.

  • Hug Columbus, OH curves like you haven't seen them in year with the tighter turning radius on the Mazda CX-5. The CR-V has to take turns a bit wider, so if you're looking for a more engaging drive, the Mazda CX-5 is the way to go.

The Mazda CX-5 versus the Subaru Outback in Columbus

  • The base model of the Mazda CX-5 can be equipped to be more powerful than the base Outback. It's motivated by an available 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, and it seriously outpaces the Outback right out of the box.

  • The spacious Mazda CX-5 boasts more generous rear passenger space than the Outback. The Mazda's cabin boasts ample headroom and legroom for five adults, and it makes the backseat a more ideal place to be on road trips -- and that's extremely important for a family vehicle.

  • The Mazda CX-5 is lighter than the Outback, and it's more efficient, too -- athleticism in a family-friendly form.

  • The base Outback is burdened by lackluster acceleration while the Mazda CX-5 is praised for its above-average performance for its class.

  • Mazda is well-known for its distinct, ultra-modern, and sophisticated designs that gives its vehicles a visual edge over the competition. The Mazda CX-5 is downright voluptuous, and the Outback looks like a raised, wagon-like version of the compact car it's based on -- conservative and cookie-cutter.

The Mazda CX-5 versus the Toyota RAV4 in Columbus

  • Both the Mazda CX-5 and the RAV4 can come powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder -- but the similarities stop there. Mazda engineering gets more power out of this engine than Toyota, as well as better fuel economy.

  • Mazda also get more pep out of this engine with more eager acceleration than the RAV4. A common critique of the RAV4 is its lackluster driving dynamics and class-trailing efficiency. Mazda is praised for its engaging performance and its fun-to-drive nature that's hard to come by in a compact crossover SUV.

  • The Mazda CX-5 is taller than the RAV4 and boasts a longer wheelbase. Together, these make for more overall headroom, legroom, and passenger space than the RAV4 as well -- and spaciousness is certainly an asset for a family vehicle.

  • Affordability is something else families are looking for in their crossovers, and the Mazda CX-5 wins out over the RAV4 with a lower starting price. Factor in that better efficiency, and it looks like the numbers are adding up in favor of the Mazda CX-5 becoming your next new vehicle.
