Few SUVs Can Match What the New Mazda CX-5 Brings to Your Virginia Travels

There are a number of qualities you want in any SUV. It has to be safe for driving the family around, with the right kinds of features to keep you out of harm's way and to stay connected while you're on the go. It should also be comfortable for passengers and spacious for cargo, with adjustable seating to change the cabin layout in a snap. Of course the new Mazda CX-5 checks off all the important marks, with available additions for premium styling and amenities throughout its lineup. See for yourself what makes the new CX-5 so special by heading over to our Mazda dealership in Chantilly, VA from Centreville or Sterling today and we'll happily take you for a test drive.

Of course what really makes the new CX-5 such a great choice is how it stands above the rest of the small SUV segment, which features some of the most popular vehicles seen around the Washington D.C. and Manassas areas. To give you the idea that the new CX-5 is an excellent option, consider how it stacks up against the new Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4, Nissan Rogue and Hyundai Santa Fe, then head on over to Brown's Chantilly Mazda from Reston or Vienna today.

Mazda CX-5 vs Honda CR-V

  • Driver aids including blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking come standard with the CX-5, while the CR-V forces you to choose one trim higher - and costlier - from its base level for safety features like that, and even then, the Honda suite isn't as generous as Mazda's.

  • The Mazda CX-5 will get you going faster when you select the 250-horsepower turbocharged engine option. The CR-V offers a turbo upgrade on top of its base four-cylinder as well, but it's far less powerful than the top levels of the CX-5, which will also soon offer a diesel engine as well.

  • A key highlight of any Mazda model, including the CX-5, is the near-luxurious setup you can find with the top trims. With the Signature edition of the CX-5 and other higher trims, you'll have a wealth of features like leather seating and other premium materials used throughout the cabin, which the popular CR-V can't match.

Mazda CX-5 vs Toyota RAV4

  • If you're shopping for something that will regularly have rear-seat passengers riding along with you, the CX-5 is the better option compared to the RAV4. In the Mazda crossover, your passengers will enjoy far more legroom than what's offered in the RAV4.

  • The top engine option in the CX-5, the turbocharged four-cylinder, hums along to the tune of 250 horsepower, which is far better than what the engines in the RAV4 offer. Additionally, the CX-5 will soon be available with a thrifty turbodiesel setup that the RAV4 won't have available.

  • Keeping connected and using family smartphone apps is easier with the CX-5, especially since it offers Android Auto on top of Apple CarPlay. The latest RAV4 editions only provide Apple CarPlay connectivity, leaving Android users at a loss for smartphone integration.

Mazda CX-5 vs Nissan Rogue

  • Whether it's the Rogue or the Rogue Hybrid, you're not matching the CX-5's performance levels in the Nissan crossover. The base four-cylinder in the CX-5 produces 187 horsepower, with the turbo option putting out 250 horses, compared to the lone, 170-horsepower version of the gas-powered Rogue.

  • The price increases for the top trims of the CX-5 may be more than what you'll spend on the Rogue, but with the Mazda SUV, you'll get a near-luxury setup, with leather seating and premium materials used that the Nissan SUV doesn't make available.

  • You'll appreciate having more legroom in the back of the CX-5 for longer road trips with adult passengers joining you, while the Rogue is relatively cramped in its second row.

Mazda CX-5 vs Hyundai Santa Fe

  • Amazingly the CX-5 starts off more affordable than the Santa Fe, and while the top trims compare closely in cost, the Mazda SUV is far more luxurious and delivers a high-end setup than what the completely decked-out Santa Fe offers.

  • The new CX-5 delivers more power and is more efficient than the Santa Fe when comparing starting trims.

  • If you want premium leather seating and high-end materials, choose a top trim of the CX-5 and see if you can find a luxury model at a modest price. You'll be hard-pressed for those features in a Santa Fe edition.
