2014 Mazda CX-5 vs. 2015 Hyundai Tucson Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Mazda CX-5 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Hyundai Tucson, with comparable head- and legroom. 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.

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). The Mazda CX-5 is somewhat more expensive than the Hyundai Tucson. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Mazda CX-5 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Hyundai Tucson.

Dimensions
The Mazda CX-5 is about the same width as the Hyundai Tucson. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Mazda CX-5, which is slightly longer than the Hyundai Tucson.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Mazda CX-5 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than 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. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Mazda CX-5 and 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.
