The 2014 Mazda CX-5 vs. the 2014 Nissan Rogue

Drivers, are you looking for a dependable and well-equipped new crossover around Bradenton or Tampa? Then discover the 2014 Mazda CX-5 at Cox Mazda today. You know we are your Bradenton Mazda dealership, and that means we carry the full line of Mazda vehicles, including the fan favorite CX-5.

There are many, many crossover models on the market today, though. What makes the CX-5 special? Let’s see how the poplar 2014 Nissan Rogue compares, and maybe you’ll agree with us that Mazda makes a pretty spectacular vehicle.

Mazda Makes an Efficient Crossover

One of the top draws of the crossover as the next generation family vehicle comes from its efficiency. SUVs are still popular, but they frequently get poor gas mileage, and vehicles like the CX-5 offer much of the same versatility with a fuel economy more like a sedan.

Or at least that’s the goal. The Nissan Rogue earns an EPA-estimated 28 mpg on the highway—not bad—but Mazda’s CX-5 is good for 32 highway mpg. Four miles per gallon may not sound like a lot, but rest assured that it will add up over time.

The CX-5 is Well-Equipped and Spacious Too

Not only does the Mazda crossover come with a fair number of standard features that are lacking on the Rogue, but it also gives drivers more options. Some of the many attractive optional features on the CX-5 that you won’t find on the entry-level Nissan include:

  • Navigation system
  • Telematics system
  • Fog lights
  • Load bearing exterior rack
  • Tow hitch receiver

Remember how we said that the crossover was like a smaller version of an SUV? Well, the Rogue will certainly feel small, as it offers less front row shoulder and hip room and less second-row head, hip, and leg room than the CX-5
