2017 Mazda CX-5 vs 2017 Toyota Rav4

By rochestermotors | Posted in Uncategorized on Thursday, November 16th, 2017 at 8:35 PM

Selling in the thousands and greater than sedans, crossovers are a huge hit when it comes to drivers wanting an adventurous vehicle, prompting automakers to introduce an endless parade of new crossovers onto the showrooms. In this comparison between the 2017 Mazda CX-5 and the 2017 Toyota Rav4, let’s take a look at how these two vehicles have impressed drivers with their popularity. While Toyota crossovers have been sold for decades, the 2017 Toyota Rav4 has always been a crowd pleaser. Yet with being newly redesigned for 2017, the Mazda CX-5 might be awarded with a gold medal.

In no mind, the 2017 Mazda CX-5 and the 2017 Toyota Rav4 are the top two for crossovers, yet one outshines the other when looking for a vehicle. While the 2017 Toyota Rav4 earns 22 City/ 28 Highway MPG, the 2017 Mazda CX-5 tops as the winner with 24 City/31 Highway MPG. Yet when it comes to trunk space, the 2017 Toyota Rav4 tops off with 38.4 cubic ft. over the 2017 Mazda CX-5 cubic feet of 30.9.

 

 While the 2017 Toyota Rav4 gives off the practical feel, the 2017 Mazda CX-5 has a premium feel emotion. As mostly buttoned down in terms of response and handling, the 2017 Mazda CX-5 agile and engages with the engine (which noticeably is quiet), making the vehicle fun to drive, especially with the combination of technology and the steering rack mounted directly onto the subframe. The 2017 Toyota Rav4 shows off more utilitarian, yet the infotainment system seems to be less modern. Interior in no doubt goes to the 2017 Mazda CX-5- with a two lone leather interior along with the dash and center console gives off a refresh signature look. The 2017 Rav4 packs leather interior with stitched elements, leaving an uncomfortable rough feel while driving. Plus the infotainment system is just less modern with no option to use Android Auto or Apple Car Play.
