2019 Subaru Crosstrek vs. 2019 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 Subaru Crosstrek, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Subaru Crosstrek 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 Subaru Crosstrek 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). Clearly, the Subaru Crosstrek is a better financial choice over the Mazda CX-5, when considering MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Subaru Crosstrek will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Mazda CX-5.

Dimensions
Since the Subaru Crosstrek is much slimmer than the Mazda CX-5, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Subaru Crosstrek takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mazda CX-5.

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

Handling
The Subaru Crosstrek has the same turning radius as the Mazda CX-5, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Mazda CX-5 is clearly the choice over the Subaru Crosstrek for pulling heavy loads. The Subaru Crosstrek 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 Subaru Crosstrek and the Mazda CX-5. The Subaru Crosstrek 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 Subaru Crosstrek comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mazda CX-5.
