2018 Jeep Wrangler vs. 2018 Mazda CX-5 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Jeep Wrangler than the Mazda CX-5. The Jeep Wrangler will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mazda CX-5.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Jeep Wrangler 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 Jeep Wrangler 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. 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 significantly less cargo capacity than the Mazda CX-5.

Warranty
The Jeep Wrangler comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mazda CX-5.
