You have an abundance of options when it comes to small SUVs. Here at Hall Mazda Virginia Beach, we offer several fantastic options to choose from. One of our favorites here at our Virginia Beach Mazda dealership is the 2020 Mazda CX-5. To prove its worth, we pitted it against one of its top competitors, the 2020 Honda CR-V.

The 2020 Mazda CX-5 crossover comes in five trim levels: the 2020 Mazda CX-5 Sport, Touring, Grand Touring, Grand Touring Reserve, and Signature. The first three trims are powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that renders 187 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque. The last two trims earn a version of that engine that churns out 227 horsepower and 250 lb-ft of torque. Meanwhile, the entry-level engine found on competitors like the Honda CR-V only offers a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers 184 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque.  

When it comes to class and driving performance, the Honda model can’t compete with what the 2020 Mazda CX-5 brings to the table. The Mazda model prides itself on performance and luxury, and that is seen and felt throughout the vehicle. Notable features include leather upholstery, USB ports, heated seats, upgraded driver information display, a navigation system, satellite radio, and more. 

When it comes to safety, there are no cutting corners. While we should note that both models offer plenty in the safety category, there’s one clear winner. That winner is the 2020 Mazda CX-5. That’s because the Mazda SUV earned the highest safety rating, the IIHS Top Safety Pick+ award. Whereas, the Honda model did not.  

There’s no shortage of safe and reliable options out there. However, there are few that so perfectly combine luxury, performance, and safety, as well as the 2020 Mazda CX-5. Visit our Virginia Beach Mazda dealership to shop yours today.
