2015 Hyundai Tucson vs. 2015 Mazda CX-5 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Hyundai Tucson offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Mazda CX-5, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Hyundai Tucson and the Mazda CX-5.

Convenience
With the Mazda CX-5, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Hyundai Tucson, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Hyundai Tucson will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Mazda CX-5. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Hyundai Tucson will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Mazda CX-5.

Dimensions
The Hyundai Tucson is about the same width as the Mazda CX-5. The Hyundai Tucson is slightly shorter than the Mazda CX-5, which may make it easier to park.

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

Handling
The Hyundai Tucson has a smaller turning radius than the Mazda CX-5, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Mazda CX-5 is clearly the choice over the Hyundai Tucson for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Hyundai Tucson and the Mazda CX-5.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Hyundai Tucson and the Mazda CX-5. The Hyundai Tucson has less cargo space than the Mazda CX-5, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Hyundai Tucson than that of the Mazda CX-5.
