If you’re in the market for a new vehicle that can reliably get you from point A to point B and provide top-of-the-line features and performance, then you’re in the right place. We’re here with a side-by-side comparison of the two most popular models in the market: the 2024 Mazda CX-50 vs. Subaru Outback. Take a look below to see which one best suits your needs to find your perfect match!
The only thing better than a new car is a good deal on a new car! The 2024 Mazda CX-50 has just about everything you need when it comes to the features, amenities, and creature comforts you get to enjoy inside the cabin. Not only does the Mazda CX-50 come equipped with state-of-the-art technology, an advanced safety system, and impressive performance that is sure to turn heads in Denver, but it comes at a great price that won’t break the bank.
Alongside a truly awe-inspiring infotainment display, you can look forward to taking advantage of other features like the Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration, maps, playlists, contacts, and Bluetooth capability. And if that isn’t enough, you can enjoy luxury comforts that include a premium eight-speaker sound system or Bose® 12-speaker audio system, dual-zone climate control with pollen filter, six-way adjustable driver’s seat, and more. There’s just too much to list!
Now, comfort is a great perk, but the most important part of a vehicle comes down to the safety features so you can drive with confidence in Centennial. The 2024 Mazda CX-50 comes equipped with the i-Activsense Safety system, which includes adaptive radar cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, lane departure warning, forward-collision warning, and more. And that’s not even covering the expansive airbag system that protects you and your passengers in case of any incidents!
In terms of performance, the Mazda CX-50 is something special, as it comes with either a SKYACTIV-G 2.5 4-cylinder engine that produces 186 horsepower or the SKYACTIV-G 2.5 4-cylinder turbo engine garnering 227 horsepower. Talk about a powerful combo!
In terms of competition, many Denver drivers often compare the Mazda CX-50 to the 2024 Subaru Outback. While the Outback starting price may be a bit lower than the Mazda CX-50, you’ll find that it does not come with nearly the same amount of features and amenities that the CX-50 does.
While drivers get access to basic smartphone capabilities, including Bluetooth connectivity and radio, it doesn’t quite level up to the variety you’d find in the Mazda CX-50. And the same goes for the general comfort functions that the Outback comes equipped with. That being said, while the Mazda CX-50 goes above and beyond, the Outback is still capable of providing for its driver’s needs.
The one eye-catching feature of the Outback is the EyeSight® driver assist technology, including cruise control, lane sway warning, pre-collision braking, and throttle control. Additionally, with Subaru STARLINK® safety and security, drivers can stay connected to the vehicle with collision notifications, SOS emergency assistance, and roadside help. So, in terms of safety, the Outback can provide.
Drivers interested in the Subaru can choose between the 2.5L 4-cylinder engine producing 182 horsepower or the alternative 2.4L turbo 4-cylinder engine producing 260 horsepower. Though the alternative engine option is slightly more robust, the Mazda CX-50 can better adapt to different terrain than the Outback.
While there are features that the Mazda CX-50 and 2024 Subaru Outback share, once you get behind the wheel of the new Mazda CX-50, you’ll understand why it’s the top choice for Denver drivers. The Mazda CX-50 is a versatile vehicle you can rely on to tackle anything thrown your way.
