2020 MAZDA CX-5 vs 2020 Toyota RAV4

Serving Farmington Hills, MI

You have high expectations for your new crossover SUV, so your shortlist of possibilities naturally includes the 2020 Mazda CX-5 and the 2020 Toyota RAV4. These are both capable, stylish, and modern vehicles that are priced in the same ballpark. However, a more in-depth look will reveal standout traits that could influence your model and trim selection.


You will immediately see some of their differences when you park the Mazda CX-5 next to the RAV4. The 2020 Mazda CX-5 has stunning curves and smooth surfaces from front to rear. The crossover's minimal definition stands out and makes a bold impact. This begins as the personality lines roll up over the hood's sides and fold confidently down the side doors. Style is also accentuated by thin body molding from end to end, a chrome-accented grille, narrow LED headlights, and tinted windows. The 2020 Toyota RAV4's style, on the other hand, is edgy with linear elements on all sides. The hood is relatively flat as it angles slightly into the downward-turning grille. The sharp angles in the grille are mirrored in the lower front fascia. The RAV4's accents are all straight lines. Even the wheel wells have a boxed-out look.


The modern appeal of the Mazda CX-5's exterior carries across the dashboard and the center console. The console is notably extensive with chrome accents, a rotary mode selector, functions for heated seats, etc. The other features in the Mazda CX-5 include Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth, a push-button ignition, chrome-outlined air vents, and more. The 2020 RAV4's interior has a ledge-style dashboard design. The floating infotainment system screen is pushed back on this ledge. The metallic accents that run alongside the cropped center console trend up through the center stack. Features in the RAV4 include a push-button ignition, a rotary gear selector, mounted functions on the steering wheel, and more.


Across the trim levels for the 2020 Mazda CX-5, you will find all of the same safety features as standard equipment. These include a rear monitor, child safety door locks, electronic brakeforce distribution, radar cruise control, smart city brake support, and other advanced features. In the Toyota RAV4 for 2020, you will find the Star Safety System, eight airbags, child safety features, and other gear as standard items.
