Smaller, Safer, Sportier -- How the Just-Right 2016 Mazda CX-5 Overshadows its Compact-Crossover Competitors

Compact crossovers are urban-friendly alternatives to the traditional midsize and full-size SUVs. But while they're more svelte than the average family crossover, their petite powertrains don't exactly mirror their sporty exteriors -- and that's one reason why the 2016 Mazda CX-5 stands out from the compact-crossover crowd. The Mazda CX-5 is competitively spacious, efficient, and tech-savvy. However, most notably, it offers genuinely sporty performance that surpasses expectations for this class of hip haulers.

You can see how the Mazda CX-5 offers a more satisfying experience than other small SUVS in the Glendale, Los Angeles, Alhambra, Pasadena, Van Nuys and Hollywood area, like the Hyundai Tucson, by scrolling through the quick comparison below:

The 2016 Mazda CX-5 versus the 2016 Hyundai Tucson

  • The Mazda CX-5 starts things off on the right foot with a more efficient base four-cylinder engine than the Tucson.
  • Mazda CX-5 drivers can outfit even the base Sport model with the 2.5-liter engine upgrade, while Tucson buyers need to invest in a more expensive model for the mere option of an upgrade.
  • The Mazda CX-5 is longer and taller than the Tucson, which makes for greater maximum cargo space and overall passenger space.
  • Even with its superior setup, the Mazda CX-5 is available at a lower starting price than the Tucson.
