  • Engine: The Mazda CX-5 comes standard with a 187-hp SKYACTIV®-G 2.5L 4-cylinder engine rated at 186 lb-ft of torque. The Honda CR-V is equipped with a 184-hp 2.4L inline-4 rated at 180 lb-ft of torque.

CX-5 vs. CR-V: Safety Features

Honda Sensing is one of the brand’s most noteworthy technologies. It’s a bundle of intelligent driver assists, such as lane departure warning and collision warning with automatic braking. However, it’s not offered on the 2018 Honda CR-V LX. You’ll have to upgrade to the CR-V EX for Honda Sensing. Despite costing less, the Mazda CX-5 includes the following as standard equipment:

  • Smart City Brake Support – operates between 2 and 18 mph, and warns you when you’re approaching a vehicle too quickly on Meridian roads.
  • Advanced Blind Spot Monitoring – alerts you when a vehicle enters your blind zone.
  • Rear Cross-Traffic Alert – notifies you of vehicles approaching from the side as you’re backing out of a parking space.
