2014 Mazda CX-5 vs. 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Mazda CX-5 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, with comparable head- and legroom. The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mazda CX-5, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Mazda CX-5 as you will with the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Mazda CX-5 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Mazda CX-5 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.

Dimensions
The Mazda CX-5 is a little narrower than the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. The Mazda CX-5 is slightly shorter than the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
The Mazda CX-5 has much lower torque than the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

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

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Mazda CX-5 will do just as well as the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, since they have about the same towing capacity. When it comes to horsepower, the Mazda CX-5 has a lot less horsepower than the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.

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

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