2020 MAZDA CX-5 vs 2020 Honda CR-V

Serving Farmington Hills, MI

Picking out your new crossover SUV from the many models on the market is understandably challenging, but you can save time and energy by narrowing down your options to the 2020 Mazda CX-5 and the 2020 Honda CR-V. These popular models both sit in the compact crossover SUV class. Are you ready to get familiar with their differences?


Across the Mazda CX-5’s five trim levels, it shows its modern appeal with its athletic profile and well-defined contours. The smooth hood rolls directly into a flat-nosed front end. Uniquely, the pentagon-shaped grille is underscored by a chrome bar. This bar angles upward to highlight the slanted LED headlights. The Honda CR-V for 2020 has a bold definition on the sides of the hood. The hood trends modestly into the rounded nose. The front end juts out dramatically across the front bumper for a unique look.


The interior of the 2020 Mazda CX-5 is designed with long, linear elements and metallic accents. Throughout the trim line, the Mazda CX-5 has a floating display screen, a navigation system, Bluetooth tech, a push-button ignition, an auto climate control system, and other equipment. The 2020 Honda CR-V’s interior, on the other hand, has a two-tier center console. The gear shifter is mounted on a separate platform directly below the infotainment system’s display screen.


All of the Honda CR-V’s trim levels and most of the Mazda CX-5’s trim levels are equipped with an I-4 engine that produces relatively comparable horsepower. The top trim in the 2020 Mazda CX-5 family comes with a four-cylinder, 2.5-liter turbo engine that raises the bar with 227 horsepower production.
