Compact crossovers are some of the most popular vehicles on the road today. They offer fuel-efficient performance, comfortable cabins, and entertaining tech features, and the 2021 Mazda CX-5 and the 2021 Honda CR-V are widely considered to be two of the best crossovers in their class. 

Wondering which SUV is best for you? Pay a visit to O’Brien Mazda of Fort Myers to see how these models really stack up against one another. 

Performance Details

The 2021 Mazda CX-5 provides you with an exceptional driving experience thanks to its sporty handling, high-performance turbocharged engine, and G-Vectoring Control Plus technology. Under the hood, you’ll find an available 2.5-liter turbocharged engine that’s capable of producing 250 horsepower and 320 lb.-ft. of torque.   

Meanwhile, the Honda CR-V only musters up to 190 horsepower with its available 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine. Plus, its handling is nowhere near as sporty as the Mazda CX-5 when it comes to hugging turns and curves.   

Interior Amenities 

Not only does the 2021 Mazda CX-5 look and feel sporty, but it also acts sporty when you get behind the wheel. With its 10.25-inch touchscreen display, you’ll be able to access your favorite apps and playlists with ease. Not to mention, you’ll be treated to blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, which let you know when vehicles are hiding in your blind spots.   

The Honda CR-V offers very few standard infotainment features, and its touchscreen isn’t as intuitive as the one found in the Mazda CX-5.  

All in all, the 2021 Mazda CX-5 is the clear winner when it comes to luxury and performance. However, the best way to understand what this Mazda model has to offer is with a comprehensive test drive. We invite you to visit O’Brien Mazda of Fort Myers and take it for a spin today!
