2024 MAZDA CX-5 vs. 2024 Honda CR-V

With many SUV models available, Denver car shoppers like yourself have options to work from. However, trying to find the right one for your needs and lifestyle can get overwhelming. If the 2024 MAZDA CX-5 and Honda CR-V are on your list, then let the team at Schomp Mazda help you out! We’ve put together a guide comparing this Mazda crossover SUV with Honda’s midsize SUV. Read on to find out how these models compare when it comes to the interior, safety technology, and performance.


The 2024 MAZDA CX-5 

One of the main ways Mazda vehicles stand out from the other vehicles is its premium driving experience. You can expect the same from the new MAZDA CX-5. This is especially true inside this SUV, where you’ll find a leather interior in the entry-level configuration! From leatherette-trimmed seats to a leather-wrapped gear selector and a leather-wrapped steering wheel, you’re enjoying high-end materials from the get-go. You’ll also easily see all the information you need via a 10.25-inch full-color display. If you want to listen to your music or podcast clearly, you can opt for the available 10-speaker Bose® audio system. 

The 2024 MAZDA CX-5 is equipped with Mazda’s i-Activsense® safety technology, so you can confidently travel around Aurora. This safety technology helps to protect you, your passengers, and pedestrians in the event that an accident happens. It’ll also help prevent the accident if possible. You’ll have access to features, such as Advanced Smart City Brake Support with Day and Night-time Pedestrian Detection and available Traffic Jam Assist.

In the 2024 lineup, there are two engine options: the standard SKYACTIV®-G 2.5 DOHC 16-valve four-cylinder engine with Cylinder Deactivation and the available SKYACTIV®-G 2.5 with Dynamic Pressure Turbo engine. The standard powerhouse delivers up to 187 hp and 185 lb-ft of torque while the available turbo powerhouse maxes out at 256 hp and 320 lb-ft of torque instead. You can also get better handling on the roads of Centennial without upgrading since the brand’s exclusive all-wheel drive, the i-Activ AWD®, comes standard.

Honda CRV

The Competitor: 2024 Honda CR-V

The Honda CR-V is one of the SUVs that is often compared to the MAZDA CX-5. So how does it hold up? When we’re looking at the interior, the CR-V keeps things basic with standard cloth seats. If you want an elegant look and feel of leather seats, you will need to choose one of the higher-tier trims, which will cost you significantly more than the entry-level one. Plus, the 2024 Honda CR-V has a standard four-speaker audio system that’s not as impressive as the MAZDA CX-5’s standard six-speaker audio system with automatic level control.

The new CR-V comes with the Honda Sensing® suite of safety assistance features that are designed to make driving easier and to protect you and your passengers on the road. Honda Sensing® includes features, such as the Collision Mitigation Braking System™ and the Road Departure Mitigation System. There are also other driver-assistive and active safety technologies for the CR-V, though some are only available in select trims.

As for the performance, the 2024 Honda CR-V is available as a gas-powered and hybrid model. The gas-powered models are equipped with a turbocharged 1.5L engine that produces up to 190 hp and 179 lb-ft of torque. While the gas configurations offer slightly more horsepower than MAZDA CX-5’s standard engine, they offer less torque. If we’re looking at the 2.0L direct-injection Atkinson engine paired with an electric motor and e-CVT that’s standard on the hybrid models, this powerhouse delivers a total of 204 hp, which is significantly lower than the 256 hp of MAZDA CX-5’s available turbo engine.
