2021 Honda CR-V vs 2021 Mazda CX-5 | Vallejo, CA

If you’re looking for a dynamic, fun way to get your family around California, then a crossover vehicle is likely a solid option for you. With spacious, versatile interiors and eco-friendly powertrains, both the Honda CR-V and 2021 Mazda CX-5 are two options in this segment you can consider. Here’s a look at how these two models differ, so you can find the right option for your needs.

Interior Space

When you need a family-friendly ride to haul your kids around Vallejo, interior space can be a big factor. The Honda CR-V and Mazda CX-5 can each fit up to five passengers with ease, but when it comes down to both cargo and passenger space, the Honda crossover pulls ahead. The CR-V offers 39.2 cubic feet of storage behind the second-row seats, expanding to fit up to 75.8 cubic feet behind the first row. The Mazda CX-5 can only fit 30.9 cubic feet and 59.6 cubic feet, respectively.
Despite offering more cargo space, the 2021 Honda CR-V also has more passenger volume than its Mazda competitor. It can fit up to 105.9 cubic feet of passengers on the go, while the CX-5 only fits 103.6 cubic feet.

Eco-Friendly Power

Peppy power and efficiency blend in these two crossover options, but when you look closer at efficiency numbers, you can see that the CR-V is the more efficient option. The front-wheel-drive Honda model gets 28 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway, while the all-wheel-drive option gets 27 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway.*
Both of these fuel-efficiency ratings are higher than the CX-5’s best numbers. This crossover gets 25 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway with its standard engine. It drops even more when you opt for the available turbocharged four-cylinder engine, offering only 23 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway.
Another big difference between these two models is the fact that the CR-V also comes available as a hybrid. The CX-5 doesn’t come have a hybrid offering, which means if you really want to go green, the CR-V Hybrid is the way to go. This hybrid option gets 40 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway.*
