2014 Acura TSX vs. 2014 Mazda Mazda5 Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mazda Mazda5 than the Acura TSX, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Acura TSX, drivers may find the Mazda Mazda5 a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
The Acura TSX will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Mazda Mazda5, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Acura TSX will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Mazda Mazda5, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Acura TSX is much higher than that for the Mazda Mazda5.

Dimensions
Since the Acura TSX is much wider than the Mazda Mazda5, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Acura TSX, which is slightly longer than the Mazda Mazda5.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Acura TSX transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Mazda Mazda5.

Handling
The Acura TSX has about the same turning radius as the Mazda Mazda5, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Acura TSX is somewhat more powerful than the Mazda Mazda5.

Utility
The Acura TSX has less seating than the Mazda Mazda5, making the Mazda Mazda5 the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Acura TSX than that of the Mazda Mazda5.
