The Mazda model lineup has gone under incremental changes for the 2021 model year. This includes the 2021 Mazda CX-5, one of the brand’s flagship models at the small crossover class.
One major point many experts are impressed with in the 2021 Mazda CX-5 is its interior. But when it comes to performance and interior amenities, does it match the Volkswagen name with its 2021 Volkswagen Tiguan? Bob Baker Mazda compares both models below:

For additional power, the SKYACTIV®-G 2.5-Liter Dynamic Pressure Turbo engine can provide a whopping 250 horsepower – much higher than other competitors.
