The 2016 Mazda CX-5 vs. Honda CR-V | Near Waterbury, CT

Taking the Competition to Task:
The Mazda CX-5 Squares Off Against the Honda CR-V

They say it's lonely at the top, but if you ask the Mazda CX-5, you'll only hear It's good to be king. The Crossover SUV segment has been metaphorically on fire for the past year or so, but not all crossovers are the same. If you're looking to get the most bang for your buck, check out this quick comparison between the Mazda CX-5 and the Honda CR-V to see how the CX-5 compares to some of its stiffest competition.

The Post-Game Review: Mazda CX-5 VS Honda CR-V

  • Right off the line, the entry-level trims for the Mazda CX-5 and Honda CR-V begin to show their differences. The 2016.5 Mazda CX-5 arrives with a base price of $21,795 (with manual transmission), while the 2016 CR-V weighs in with a comparably hefty base price of $23,845. We can think of two thousand good reasons to look at the Mazda CX-5 a bit closer, how about you?
  • In its entry-level trim equipped with an automatic transmission, the Mazda CX-5 offers an available navigation system, but if you want that option on the Honda CR-V, you'll have to make you way further up the costly trim tree.
  • In terms of little creature comforts and conveniences, the Mazda CX-5 gives you just a bit more than the Honda CR-V. A standard remote trunk release, available universal garage door opener, available remote engine start, and standard keyless start all add up to a more convenient, driver-focused crossover SUV. With the Honda CR-V, you either don't get the option for these features or have to pay a premium for them.

Only you can decide which crossover SUV reigns supreme, but we hope the above comparison has teased out some tangible differences for you to sink your teeth into.
