Mazda CX-5 vs Nissan Juke

The 2013 Mazda CX-5 vs. the 2013 Nissan Juke

Though the CX-5 is new to Mazda’s line-up, it’s already making a name for itself. It features Mazda’s entire collection of Skyactiv Technology, making it one of the most fuel efficient crossovers available on today’s market. Cox Mazda, located near St. Petersburg and Palmetto, is proud to welcome the 2013 Mazda CX-5 into its selection. We invite you to explore what Mazda’s new crossover has in store and how it compares to the competition. The Nissan Juke is another available pick in the crossover class. Drivers interested, though, in getting the most out of their ride may want to seriously consider the Mazda CX-5

The CX-5 has Plenty to Offer

What makes the CX-5 so unique? Mazda built this vehicle from the ground up, making sure that everything from the engine to the chassis was optimized to allow for the best possible fuel economy. The base CX-5 gets a highway fuel economy of 35 mpg where the 2013 Juke only gets 32 mpg on the highway.

While that might not seem that big of a difference, consider the space that the CX-5 offers. Mazda allows passengers to enjoy 103.8 cubic feet of cabin space, compared to the 86.7 cubic feet on the Juke. Mazda also has Nissan royally trumped on cargo space, 34.1 cubic feet to 10.5 cubic feet. That’s strong engineering.

The base CX-5 also arrives with many features that are not available on the base Juke. These include a telescoping steering column, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, optional fog lamps, daytime running lights, signaling side mirrors, and an optional load-bearing rack and tow hitch receiver. When it comes to towing, the CX-5 can haul up to 2,000lbs, compared to the 1,500lbs by the Juke.
