The 2014 Mazda5 vs. the 2014 Ford Escape

2014 Mazda5 Tampa and Bradenton drivers, if you’re looking for your next family vehicle, we have it right here for you at Cox Mazda: the 2014 Mazda5. This stunning compact minivan has been upgraded year by year and has no trouble going up against some of the most competitive family vehicles around, in an age when many minivans have trouble holding a candle to comparable crossovers.

The family vehicle market is fierce, though, and if you want one of the best, you have a lot to wade through. Is the 2014 Ford Escape crossover right for you? Does it hold up to scrutiny from the Mazda5? Let’s take a look.

Drivers Get More Features Options With Mazda

If you’re looking for your next family vehicle, you want to make sure you can get the one that best fits your needs as a driver and your needs as a family, and we think the best way to be sure of is to check out the options. Do you want a navigation system or a built-in video player to keep the kids entertained? You might want the Mazda5, then.

The Ford Escape S doesn’t have options like these available to drivers, but you can add them right onto the basic Mazda5 Sport with ease.

Passenger Space

One of the other main advantages of a minivan over a crossover is space. The Mazda5 seats six comfortably, giving you more room for the kids and some friends without too much trouble, while the Escape only has room for five.

Save With Mazda

One of the things we have found drivers praising the whole Mazda lineup for, including the Mazda5, is affordability. While there are many vehicle choices out there, Mazda continues to create some of the most affordable, and the 2014 Mazda5 is no exception, priced at $20,140 (MSRP) compared to the $23,100 MSRP of the Ford Escape. What would you do with nearly $3,000 left over after buying your next car?
