PostHeaderIcon 2017 Honda CR-V vs 2017 Mazda CX-5

It’s no secret the compact crossover segment has exploded in popularity over the last several years. Nearly every automaker sells some form of vehicle in this class, including the Ford Escape, Hyundai Tucson, Jeep Cherokee, Kia Sportage, Toyota RAV4, and Subaru Forester. But it’s the Honda CR-V and Mazda CX-5 that have attracted the most attention in the recent months. Both enter the 2017 model year with heavy changes and big improvements. The two aren’t the only new contenders in the compact crossover class, but they sure stand out.

That’s why we’ve chosen to take a close look at the CR-V and CX-5 as they compare to each other. From exterior aesthetics and interior features, to drivetrain options and trim level pricing – everything is detained below.

Of course, we’ll have to save driving impressions until we can get behind the wheel of each, so consider this a more objective run-down of features rather than a subjective comparison of in-person impressions.

Continue reading for the full comparison.


PostHeaderIcon Mazda CX-5

When it was introduced for the 2013 model year, Mazda had high hopes for the CX-5. But, the model has been a major disappointment with sales in 2014 not even hitting the 100,000 mark while models from competitors, like the Honda CR-V, for example, saw much higher numbers to the tune of 350,000 examples sold. The CX-5 was facelifted in 2016, but it still failed to meet expectations, despite having a fair amount of muscle under the hood. Consider the CX-5 isn’t exactly a slouch, it must be the design that turns customers away, so Mazda got to work. It didn’t take long for Mazda to complete the second-gen model, and it made its debut at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show sporting an awesome new body color, G-Vectoring Control, a revamped body shell, slightly wider stance, and the addition of Mazda’s SKYACTIV, 2.2-liter diesel engine as an option for U.S. buyers.

The hardest thing Mazda really has to overcome is how overcrowded the compact SUV segment really is. Big names like CR-V, Escape, Equinox, and Rav 4 all resonate through the minds of those looking for the best ride in this segment, and that doesn’t help a newer model like the CX-5 – being around just a few years – establish a good hold in the market. But Mazda isn’t giving up yet, and the new design that makes front clip inherently longer than the outgoing model should help the CX-5 garner the attention of those really wanting a sporty compact SUV. On top of that, there’s lots of cool technology like Mazda’s G-Vectoring control, i-ACTIVESENSE safety features, and there’s even a two-step reclining mechanism built into the rear seats.

But, there’s a lot more to talk about when it comes to the 2018 Mazda CX-5, so let’s dive on in a take a good look at what it brings to the table and how it compares to the rather stiff competition in this segment.


PostHeaderIcon Rowen Mazda CX-5 Revealed with Dapper Looks

Rowen Mazda CX-5-0

Rowen Japan is a tuner with a rather unique taste that not everybody finds interesting. Their body kits have a very strong Japanese flavor, as seen with their latest release, Rowen Mazda CX-5 facelift. It’s a busy looking thing, but you could call it artistic.

The styling kit on Rowen Mazda CX-5 consists of many different parts which are mixed to give the car the proper makeover the tuner was after. It has revised bumpers and skirts, and they are garnished with extra bits that are purely aesthetic and probably have no technical benefit in terms of aerodynamics.

So you get a chiseled front apron with a spoiler lip and LED lights, side skirts complete with aero blades and stuffs, a super unique rear diffuser with integrated tailpipes and chrome accents, and a whole host of spoilers on the tailgate and the roof. Then there is the set of over-fenders, and all they do is make the wheels look small – unless you go for Rowen’s own SCHWERT SC6 20-inch wheels.

Rowen Mazda CX-5 body kit costs, in its full-fat version, costs 300,000 Yen which is roughly 24,000 USD. Sport exhaust system will add 100K Yen to that and the LED set another 35K.
