2016 Hyundai Tucson vs. 2016 Mazda CX-5 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Hyundai Tucson than the Mazda CX-5. 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
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Hyundai Tucson 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). Whether you pick the Hyundai Tucson or the Mazda CX-5, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Hyundai Tucson and the Mazda CX-5 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Hyundai Tucson is about the same width as the Mazda CX-5. When looking at overall length, the Hyundai Tucson takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mazda CX-5.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Hyundai Tucson transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than 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. The Hyundai Tucson has a little less horsepower than 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.
