The Honda CR-V offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Mazda CX-5. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Honda CR-V and the Mazda CX-5.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Honda CR-V as you will with the Mazda CX-5, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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).

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Honda CR-V doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mazda CX-5.

Handling
