2015 Jeep Wrangler vs. 2015 Mazda CX-5 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mazda CX-5 than in the Jeep Wrangler, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Jeep Wrangler offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mazda CX-5, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
The Mazda CX-5 requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Jeep Wrangler, 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 Jeep Wrangler is somewhat more expensive 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 Destination Charge for the Jeep Wrangler is much higher than that for the Mazda CX-5.

Dimensions
The Jeep Wrangler is a little wider than the Mazda CX-5, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the Jeep Wrangler, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Mazda CX-5.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Jeep Wrangler does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Mazda CX-5.

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

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Jeep Wrangler will do just as well as the Mazda CX-5, since they have about the same towing capacity. When it comes to horsepower, the Jeep Wrangler greatly out-muscles the Mazda CX-5.

Utility
The Jeep Wrangler has less seating than the Mazda CX-5, making the Mazda CX-5 the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Jeep Wrangler 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
The Jeep Wrangler comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mazda CX-5.
