white mazda cx-5 compared to silver subaru forester

If you look around on the roads these days, you will see more crossover SUVs than ever before. The 21st century has been the golden age of crossovers because they are more practical than sedans or trucks and they are becoming increasingly efficient. The Mazda CX-5 embodies both of those traits and it features a ton of modern technology. But what about the competition?

In order to determine a vehicle's worth, it should be compared to similar models. Here, we are putting the 2018 Mazda CX-5 up against the 2018 Subaru Forester. These crossovers are almost identically sized and feature similar engine specs, so we thought this would make for a great comparison. For fairness' sake, we are comparing the base trim levels.

Both of these vehicles are comparable when it comes to fuel efficiency as they each average more than 30 highway MPG. The slightly higher starting price of the Mazda CX-5 is more than justified by its added available and standard technologies. MAZDA CONNECT™ infotainment, Bose premium audio, SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY, and the Mazda Active Driving Display are other features that just can't be found anywhere else. We think that once you test drive the Mazda CX-5, you will fall in love.
