2020 Mazda CX-5 vs. 2020 Kia Sportage

The large class of crossovers for the 2020 season can be daunting to search through. From cargo space and performance to safety and technology features, finding the ideal can be tricky.  But the 2020 Mazda CX-5 cuts through its competitors with a sleek design and plenty of engine power and features you need.

The 2020 Mazda CX-5, found at Bob Baker Mazda in the Carlsbad and San Diego area, boasts an impressive list of features that outclass other models. But how does it stack up to other models sized similarly?  We compare it to the 2020 Kia Sportage, which is virtually identical in size and standard engine performance.  Find a comprehensive review below:

2020 Mazda CX-5


2020 Kia Sportage

2.5L 4-Cylinder Engine 2.4L 4-Cylinder
187 Horsepower 181
186 ft-lbs Torque 175 ft-lbs
25 City / 31 Highway MPG Fuel Economy 23 City / 30 Highway MPG


When comparing the two base engines, the 2020 Mazda CX-5 just outperforms the 2020 Kia Sportage across the board. However, if you want even more power, the 2.5L turbo engine offers up to 250 horsepower and 320 ft-lbs. of torque. This option easily outperforms the turbo engine in the Kia Sportage, which only receives 240 horsepower. The ride inside a CX-5 is also improved by the standard Adaptive Cruise Control, which you need to pay extra for in the Kia model.
