Dare to Compare: Mazda CX-5 vs. Honda CR-V vs. Toyota Rav4

The 2017 Mazda CX-5 is a work of art. The CX-5 has a bold exterior design, with sweeping contours and a signature KODO "Soul of Motion" style. The award-winning G-Vectoring Control (GVC) system provides impressive handling and reduced noise, and the crafted interior makes driving more relaxing. When places side by side with other crossovers like the CR-V and the RAV4, the Mazda CX-5 stands out for most drivers

Performance. The Mazda CX-5 has a SKYACTIV® 2-G 2.5-litre DOHC 16-valve four-cylinder engine with VVT that generates up to 185 lb-ft of torque. The Honda CR-V has up to 170 lb-ft of torque, and the RAV4 has up to 172 lb-ft of torque. Not only does the CX-5 have the best torque when comparing these three models, but it also has the highest towing capacity-up to 2,000 pounds. You can tow nearly 500 pounds more than the RAV4 and the CR-V when you choose the Mazda CX-5.
