Mazda5 Vs Toyota Rav4

The Mazda5 vs. the Toyota RAV4

Sarasota area drivers looking for a vehicle that is sporty and spacious will love the 2012 Mazda5. Forget what you think a family car should be; this 6-passenger vehicle is neither SUV nor minivan with a head-turning design that’s bound to get second looks. The Mazda5 truly defies traditional labels, and is simply an athletic, sporty vehicle that provides more performance and spacious comfort than you can expect from other cars in its class. With a 4-cylinder V-6 engine that produces an impressive 157 hp, you’ll soon be leaving boring minivans in your wake. With three rows of seating, your passengers will get plenty of elbow room and personal space, creating a tranquil ride for the whole family.

Cox Mazda in Bradenton has an impressive new vehicle inventory, and the Mazda5 is one of the most versatile and exciting automobiles we have in stock. In fact, it is difficult to classify this good-looking vehicle, but when compared to Toyota’s RAV4 crossover vehicle it is easy to see which automobile comes out the winner. Below are just a few of the reasons why the base model Mazda is a better purchase when compared to Toyota’s base model crossover.

  • Price. With an MSRP starting at just $19,625, the Mazda5 is the winner when it comes to affordability, over $3,000 less than the RAV4 at $22,650.
