Checking out the table above, the 2020 Mazda CX-5 edges out the VW Tiguan model. Despite its turbo engine, the Tiguan’s base engine is narrowly outmatched by the 2.5L engine inside the CX-5. If we add-in the Mazda CX-5 turbo engine option and its 227 horsepower, the gap widens even more. But keeping to the table, even the estimated combined 28 MPG is a slight improvement from the VW Tiguan. Despite the slight difference in starting MSRP, the difference is made up over time from the extra fuel economy – not to mention the infotainment features Mazda packed into the CX-5.
