Mazda CX-5 vs Kia Sportage

Deciding on your next crossover SUV, but don't know where to start? How about an inside look at the 2017 Mazda CX-5 vs. Kia Sportage? 

With so many options on the market right now, it can be a little tough to narrow down what vehicle will be the best choice for you and your family. That's why our team at Ray Price Mazda has put together this vehicle comparison to help drivers in East Stroudsburg, Stroudsburg, Easton, Brodheadsville and Saylorsville get all the details about these great vehicles.

Let's get started with the interiors…

Inside the 2017 Mazda CX-5 vs Kia Sportage

The inside of your crossover SUV is pretty crucial if you think about it. Road trips with the kids or weekly carpools can be a totally different experience with the right vehicle.

Fortunately, both the Mazda CX-5 and the Kia Sportage offer ample room for all passengers. This is important for driving around riders of all sizes.

The Mazda CX-5 comes standard with a 7-inch touchscreen with a voice-activated infotainment system, so you can navigate easily or connect your smartphone to access entertainment. The Kia Sportage comes with a 5-inch touchscreen, but its infotainment system is an add-on.

Power & Performance in the CX-5 vs Sportage

For getting where you need to go, you want the ride to be smooth, powerful, and even a little fun. You'll get all of this with these SUVs. The Mazda CX-5's 2.5L 4-cylinder engine gains about 187 horsepower, while the Kia Sportage's 2.4L 4-cylinder engine has about 181 horsepower to offer.

The Mazda CX-5 was rated at an EPA-estimated 24/31 city/highway MPG, which is great for its class, and it means less pit stops and more money saved. Unfortunately, the Kia Sportage fell a little short in this area, coming in at an EPA-estimated 21/26 city/highway MPG.

Both of these crossover SUVs have a smooth, athletic ride. So, fortunately, you're getting a fun drive if you're cruising around the mountains or just commuting to work!

Mazda CX-5 vs Kia Sportage Safety

In a family vehicle, taking safety into consideration should be a number one priority. Both the Mazda CX-5 and the Kia Sportage excel in this area, allowing you to keep your mind at ease while on the road. 

The CX-5 and Sportage both come standard with a rearview camera. The CX-5 also comes standard with low-speed automatic braking, called Smart City Brake Support, so that your vehicle can assist you in situations that you may not see right away. The Sportage offers similar features, but at an additional price.

2017 Mazda CX-5 vs 2017 Kia Sportage

Both the 2017 Mazda CX-5 and the 2017 Kia Sportage are great options to consider when looking for a new crossover SUV; however, we can't overlook the above-average fuel economy and surplus of standard features that you get with the Mazda CX-5.
