2015 Honda CRV vs 2015 Mazda CX 5
The Honda CRV was one of the first crossover vehicles in the industry, and it remains one of the most popular crossover vehicles in todays market. But recently another extremely similar vehicle has sprouted onto the market, so we wanted to take a closer look at them by analyzing the 2015 Honda CRV vs 2015 Mazda CX 5. When you have two vehicles, each running on four cylinder engines with automatic transmissions and wheelbases just north of 100 in, how can you tell which one is the better fit for you?
You need to look at the specs and features that are important to you. Things like fuel economy, which the 2015 Honda CRV has a slight advantage in. Or perhaps youre more interested in the amount of power your crossover doles out, and again the CRV gets the nod with 185 horsepower alongside 181 lb-ft of torque. Cargo capacity might not be as important in a compact crossover as it would be in a larger SUV, but if two vehicles are virtually identical than the one with a little more space would obviously be the smart choice; in this case the Honda CRV. But you have to weigh these advantages against the cost, in which the Mazda CX 5 does take a slight advantage. But for more power, better efficiency, and more space, the CRV is well worth the extra cash.
