2020 MAZDA CX-5 vs 2020 Ford Escape

Serving Farmington Hills, MI

Farmington Hills drivers have strong expectations for their vehicles, and some models quickly rise to the top of the list of possibilities. As you get to know the compact crossover SUV options on the market today, you may be drawn to the 2020 Mazda CX-5. This Mazda CX-5 has a head-turning style and sits in its second generation. The Mazda CX-5 is placed in the same class as the Ford Escape, so you naturally want to know how these two smaller SUVs stack up against each other.

Exterior

The 2020 Mazda CX-5 is available in five distinctive trims with subtle exterior style variations across the spectrum. All trims show off their sporty side with smooth surfaces and undulating contouring that reflects the light perfectly. The hood maintains a confident stance as it extends to the mesh-style grille. The chrome accent piece that runs below the grille trends into the LED headlights to create a dramatic effect. In comparison, the 2020 Ford Escape has a rounded front end, and the black grille is set lower with separation from the headlights. While the hood remains level until it drops into the grille at the last minute, the roof edges sharply toward the rear.

Interior

The Mazda CX-5 and the Escape are 2-row SUVs that carry several common features, such as an automatic climate control system, a sound system, cruise control, and other functions accessible on the steering wheel and more. The Mazda CX-5's interior design boasts elegant linear flow throughout the dashboard, and this is highlighted by chrome accents. The display screen is set back and rises out of the panel for easy viewing and accessibility. The center stack and console flow into each other perfectly. The Escape's interior design is unique. Its display screen also rises out of the dashboard, but the center console and stack are broken into distinctive sections. The section below the display screen holds the air vents and climate system controls. Another section has the sound system controls. A storage space sits below this, and this area is separated from the gauge selector and cup holders in the center console.
