2018 Mazda CX-5 vs 2018 Honda CR-V

2018 Mazda CX-5 vs 2018 Honda CR-V

Honda is often seen as one of the top brands for crossovers, at least until the catalyst in Mazda comes out to play. Both offer the confidence that comes with a high standard for engine performance and technological innovations, but only one can truly reign supreme. Which of the two is a better fit for you? Find out here as we compare the 2018 Mazda CX-5 vs 2018 Honda CR-V.

How are things looking under the hood? Both of these vehicles actually offer an abundance of performance, but the Mazda CX-5 is a step ahead thanks to SKYACTIV® technologies. This suite of technology features ensures the best drive possible thanks to ultra high-strength steel in critical areas for added protection without weighing it down and adjusts power delivery and shifts vehicle weight on turns. This is just one way Mazda is making the ride better; see more in the table below.

Technology in the 2018 Mazda CX-5

The 2018 Mazda CX-5 has everything you need to feel as though you’re driving in a vehicle made in 2018. There’s an available Active Driving Display that will project important vehicle information right there on the lower part of the windshield. Easily access everything from vehicle status to current speed and route guidance. When it comes time to look for pertinent infotainment information, get it all from the MAZDA CONNECT advanced infotainment system. This system allows you to stay connected by using a multifunctional controller on the center console to select music options, navigation routes, make calls, and much more. Should you choose to jam out to some tunes, you’ll appreciate the available Bose® 10-speaker audio system. It delivers incredibly high-quality sound from ten different angles. This is made even better when you consider the quiet interior made possible by sound-deadening materials for a soundproof interior. Features like these don’t come around often, which is why you might want to take advantage of this opportunity right away.

Even though the 2018 CR-V is a fully-capable crossover, it doesn’t quite offer the amenities of the 2018 Mazda CX-5. Ready to see more? Come check it out here at Hall Mazda in Brookfield today!
