2016 Mazda CX-5 vs. 2016 Hyundai Tucson Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Mazda CX-5 offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Hyundai Tucson. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Mazda CX-5 and the Hyundai Tucson.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Mazda CX-5 as you will with the Hyundai Tucson, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Whether you pick the Mazda CX-5 or the Hyundai Tucson, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Mazda CX-5 and the Hyundai Tucson have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Mazda CX-5 is about the same width as the Hyundai Tucson. When looking at overall length, the Mazda CX-5 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Hyundai Tucson.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Mazda CX-5 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Hyundai Tucson.

Handling
The Mazda CX-5 has a larger turning radius than the Hyundai Tucson, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Mazda CX-5 is clearly the choice over the Hyundai Tucson for pulling heavy loads. The Mazda CX-5 has a little more horsepower than the Hyundai Tucson.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Mazda CX-5 and the Hyundai Tucson. The Mazda CX-5 has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Hyundai Tucson.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Mazda CX-5 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Tucson.
