Mazda5 Vs Honda Odyssey

The 2012 Mazda5 vs. the 2012 Honda Odyssey

If you’re looking for a great crossover, come check out the new 2012 Mazda5, available now at Cox Mazda. The Mazda5 gives drivers a great combination of efficiency, value, and features that makes it a top choice in the market. Priced competitively, the Mazda5 is a great new crossover, but it faces stiff competition like the much-respected Honda Odyssey.

Superior Efficiency and Value

With gas prices climbing higher and higher fuel economy is an important factor when purchasing a new car. The new Mazda vehicle gets an impressive 21 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway which beats the Odyssey’s 18/27. When it comes to price, Mazda also has the clear edge with a base of $19,625 nearly $10,000 under the Honda’s $28,375. In fact, even the most expensive trim of the Mazda5 is still more than $4,000 less than the base price of the base trim of the Odyssey. That means that you can have a Mazda5 Grand Touring with heated leather seats, a power moonroof, rain-sensing wipers, and even heated exterior mirrors for less than an Odyssey that doesn’t even have automatic climate control.

You can opt for a comparably equipped Odyssey with a higher trim such as the EX-L but that only further demonstrates the value of the Mazda5; the starting price of a comparably equipped EX-L is over $35,800. The Mazda also offers drivers a choice between automatic and manual transmissions while the Odyssey only comes with an automatic transmission. Both vehicles offer a great range of entertainment and comfort features, but you’re going to pay a lot more to have them in the Odyssey than the Mazda5. While the large Odyssey seats an additional person, the Mazda5 offers more cargo room and still comfortably seats 6.
