The 2017 Mazda CX-5 vs. the Competition
The small SUV segment is probably the most heated one in the market, with the major competitors trying to sell to new and growing families. But competition has been very healthy for the market, as each manufacturer tries to outperform the other. The result is a segment filled with some of the most refined and high-quality vehicles ever developed. Some popular manufacturers are leading the way, and Mazda seems to be one of them. Let’s take a closer look at the 2017 Mazda CX-5 vs. the competition.

The 2017 Mazda CX-5 and Honda CR-V seem to be the strongest performers according to the most important specs. The CX-5 has the lowest base MSRP of the bunch, making it the most affordable option in this regard. And it’s also offering power and fuel economy comparable to the CR-V; both vehicles are accomplishing outstanding feats in this area, with the Mazda offering a good amount of punch and a fun drive with greater torque. A standard rear-view camera certainly is a practical and ideal safety feature to have, and the highest regard from the independent Insurance Institute for Highway Safety lends to these vehicles’ credibility tremendously.
Something else that makes the CX-5 even more appealing is the warranty it comes standard with. Mazda’s warranty is unmatched in Canada, protecting your vehicle for years, regardless of how much you drive it.
And adding to the CX-5’s value even further, it also comes with the following features:
- 6-speed shiftable automatic transmission
- All-wheel drive available
- Standard Electronic Parking Brake
- Standard LED headlights and LED daytime running lights
- 4 USB ports
- Standard aluminum wheels
