While the Mazda CX-5 comes with a larger price tag than the Chevy Trax, it is justified. Features like radar cruise control, MAZDA CONNECT™ infotainment, and integrated navigation are simply not available on the Trax. Perhaps the biggest separating factor between these two vehicles is the Mazda CX-5's newly available turbocharged engine option. On Grand Touring Reserve and Signature models, the 2019 Mazda CX-5 comes with a 250-horsepower, SKYACTIV®-G 2.5T inline four-cylinder engine with Dynamic Pressure Turbo. This added power is sure to give anyone a thrill on the highway. The Sport, Touring, and Grand Touring feature the returning engine option—a 187-horsepower, SKYACTIV®-G 2.5-liter DOHC 16-valve I4 engine with Cylinder Deactivation.
