Mazda CX-5 Vs Toyota Rav4

The 2013 Mazda CX-5 vs. the 2012 Toyota Rav4

The crowd is cheering as the battle of the compact-crossovers begins between the new 2013 Mazda CX-5 and its competitor the 2012 Toyota Rav4. Sporting a brand new combination of amazing fuel economy, stylish new looks, and a plethora of options, the 2012 CX-5 brilliantly proves that fun and function can play well together after all. Along with the added bonus of true space such as in rear seating comfort and a nifty 40/20/40 split rear seat, this new baby is ready to roll! This move on Mazda’s part beholds the truth that the Mazda CX-5 is both serious and ready to embrace the future of this growing population of vehicles, a move that the Toyota Rav4 has yet to even gesture towards.

The Mazda CX-5 Drives with New Technology

In the world of downsizing, new Mazda vehicles make strides to upsize in their fuel economy. Introducing its new SKYACTIV technology, the Mazda crossover carries an entire powertrain tuned for maximum efficiency. The all-new 155 hp 2L 4-speed is up paired with upscaled aerodynamics in its stylish design, producing an EPA-estimated 26 city/35 highway mpg. When matched up against the 22 city/28 highway mpg of the RAV4, the winner is clear in the CX-5!

The new Mazda CX-5 also integrates new safety technologies with features such as lane-departure warning, smart city brake support, and blind spot monitoring. To further your true ownership other customizable options are available such as a sunroof, front end protection, rear bumper guard, auto-dimming rearview mirror, rear parking sensors, retractable cargo cover, trailer hitch, rear and front paint protection, and the ever impressive Bose Centerpoint Surround System with AudioPilot. Do we see Toyota’s smallest SUV jamming to SirusXM Satellite Radio on this impressive system? Sorry Toyota Rav4!
