Compare Style

Comparing vehicle style is a bit like comparing personal style - everyone's tastes are different. Still, the Mazda CX-5 and Toyota RAV4 present very differently. The former offers a sleek exterior with a design language that hints at premium elegance. The latter offers a more rugged exterior with a chunkier design that implies ruggedness. These design stories carry over inside the cabins, too, with the Mazda CX-5 boasting available niceties like real open-pore wood trim and a sleek interior with soft-touch materials, and the Toyota RAV4 boasting bold, geometric-themed styling and a starker vibe.

Compare Practical Capability and Performance

Though the Toyota RAV4 might look the part of the adventuresome explorer and the Mazda CX-5 might seem more urbane, both are plenty capable. Both SUVs offer available all-wheel-drive to help you traverse any terrain with ease. Both offer seating for up to five passengers and plenty of cargo space. What's more, both are equipped with four-cylinder engines. The RAV4's engine - there's only one option - provides 203-horsepower. The Mazda CX-5 offers two engine choices, though. The first has 187-horsepower. The second kicks out up to 250-horsepower.

Compare Infotainment & Convenience Technologies

Modern infotainment tech is just as important as ever to SUV buyers, which is why Mazda equips every new Mazda CX-5 SUV with a stunning array of standard technologies. A 7-inch central infotainment display graces the dash of all new Mazda CX-5 models, while available Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration add even more user-friendliness. What about the Toyota RAV4? It offers a standard 7-inch touchscreen system too, with Apple CarPlay - but not Android Auto - also available.

Compare Standard Safety Features

You might've noticed that many of Toyota's new vehicles, including the RAV4 come standard with Toyota Safety Sense P, a suite of active safety features that helps prevent accidents. What you might not know is that the new Mazda CX-5 includes its own suite of standard active safety features, including a backup camera, blind spot monitoring, low-speed automatic emergency braking, and even rear cross-traffic alert.
