Matching performance and safety together in a single package can be hard to beat. While many crossover models attempt to offer a complete package, some may lack in one of the two categories mentioned. However, the 2020 Mazda CX-5 has been wowing crossover enthusiasts with this very combo.
Marked as one of the stronger options on the compact crossover market, the 2020 Mazda CX-5 is a great option for those in San Diego County. Especially when comparing it to other models prevalent in our area – such as the 2020 Chevrolet Equinox – the CX-5 makes for a strong investment. Check out the comparison below, brought to you by Bob Baker Mazda.
Checking out the engine specifications between the two models, the 2020 Mazda CX-5 offers impressive performance even when stacked against a turbo engine. With up to 187 horsepower, it can outmuscle the 1.5L turbo engine inside the Equinox despite the similar fuel economies. However, when comparing the Mazda CX-5 model’s 2.5L Turbocharged 4-cylinder engine to the 2.0L turbo engine in the Equinox, the CX-5 offers considerably more torque (up to 320 ft-lbs) than the Equinox (260 ft-lbs). Either way, the Mazda CX-5 offers an impressive pair of engines for its price.
When it comes to safety features, the difference between each model becomes wider. Although the Chevrolet Equinox has advanced safety features, many are only available at higher trims. With the 2020 Mazda CX-5, each model now receives the i-ACTIVSENSE® suite of safety technology. This includes the following features not standard to the Equinox:
Mazda Radar Cruise Control with Stop & Go
Rear Cross-Traffic Alert
Lane Departure Warning
When it comes to performance and safety, the 2020 Mazda CX-5 offers an incredibly strong package with just its Sport trim alone.
