16 perfect Subaru Forester Vs Mazda CX5 Which Crossover SUV Is Better

today The Subaru Forester And Mazda Cx-5 Go Head-to-head In Edmunds Exclusive Bespoke Unique Five Category Comparison Hello. I'm Alistair Even.

I'm Joined Once Again By The Frost/nixon Of The Edmond Team James Riswick Will Be Representing The Subaru Forrester Mike Monticello The Master Cx-5 The First Category Up Is Performance Mike Mazda Used To Be All About Zum-zum, But Tell Me Is There Any Of Soom Left Absolutely. I Mean Performance Is Where The Cx-5 Shines Its Steering And It's Hand Leaner Unlike Anything Else In The Segment You Throw It Into A Corner It Always Remains Poised And Let's Talk Transmissions The Cx-5 Has A Traditional 6-speed Automatic With Quick, But Yet Smooth Shifts The Forester Has A CVT And It's Not Even A Very Good CVT At That You Know. I Can't Really Argue With Anything Mike Seds There, But.

I Will Add That The Forester Has Something That The Cx-5 Does Not Have A 2-liter Turbocharged 4-cylinder It Allows A Forester To Go From 0 To 60 In 6.3 Seconds Nothing In The Segment Is Even Close It's Two Seconds Quicker Than The Best Cx-5 Engine The Other Thing About The Forester It's Better Off Road It Has Higher Ground Clearance And Approach Angles Well This Is Tougher Than You Might Think The Master Has More Worth, But Uncle Scooby Has More Pure Grunt And It Secures My First Point Hmm Moving On To Comfort Can You Chillax In The Forester Absolutely Man It's Really Easy To Do It Because You Have. So, Much Space The Backseat Is High Mounted And You Have A Lot Of Legroom Tons Of Headroom As Well And Really Its Boxy Shape Makes It Feel A Little Less Claustrophobic Inside It Also Has Better Visibility Now. I'm Not Going To Say That The Cx-5 Is Uncomfortable, But, If You're Looking For A Comfier Softer Ride The Forester Will Deliver That People Who Really Like Driving Are Going To Like The Cx-5 Front Seats There Nicely Contoured Which Means That Really Good Side Bolstering.

So, The Seats Are Going To Hold You In Place Through Corners The Forester Seats Are Wide And Flat Despite The Cx-5 S Handling Which We've Already Discussed It Still Offers A Pretty Darn Smooth Ride It's Another Close Call, But Very Superior Interior Space The Forester Scores Another Point To Know. So, We Know The Subaru Has More Space, But Mike Does The Cx-5 Hit Back With The Quality Of Its Interior Well. I Think It Does The 6'5 Interior Is Inviting For The Sake Of Driving It's Easy To Get In And Out The Doors Open Nice And Wide Now.

I Know James Is Going To Want To Talk Out Maximum Cargo Room, But. I'd Rather Talk About Daily Usable Cargo Rule Meaning The Space Behind The Rear Seat There The Forester Has Thirty Four Point Four Cubic Feet Of Cargo Room The Mazda Has Thirty Four Point Zero Which According To My New Math That's A Tie You Know. I Will Grant You That In Numbers That These Two Cars Are Pretty Close Although Again The Forester Is Bigger, But In Terms Of Actual Real-world Space.

I Actually Went Car Shopping With Friends Of A Big Old Golden Retriever She Didn't Fit In The Back Of The Cx-5 She Fit Easily In The Forester Elsewhere In The Cabin You Have Nice Simple Controls In The Forester Especially Compared To The Mazda Well Despite Being A Major Dog Lover Myself. I'm Still Going To Give The Point To The Master. So, It's Currently 2:1 To The Forester, But Kanaks Boxer Engine Deliver The Killer Punch Well The Forester Is A Few Hundred Bucks More Than The Cx-5, But You Do Get Standard Bluetooth A Rear-view Camera And Most Importantly Standard All-wheel Drive Now Not Everybody Needs All-wheel Drive, But When There's No Cost Fuel Economy Or Performance Penalty Why Not Terms A Fuel Economy They're Also Even Even The 2.0 Xt The Turbo Model Is Only Two Miles Per Gallon Lower Than The Cx-5 And It's A Lot More Powerful Well Despite Its Bent On Performance This Little Mazda Actually Gets Pretty Good Fuel Economy The Base Engine With All-wheel Drive Gets 28 Mpg Combined Which Is 1 Mpg Better Than The Forester With Its Base Engine And The 2.5 Liter Engine This Cx-5 Also Gets Better Fuel Economy Than The Subaru Forrester Turbo Admittedly That Car Is Just Just A Little Bit Quicker Than CX Behind Now Super Has A Reputation For Building You Know Rugged Interiors, But The Cx-5 Interior Is Just A Really Nice Place And To Me There's A Value In Giving Buyers A Nice Place To Spend Time.

I'm All For Utilitarian Sheep, But To Be Honest At Times A Subaru Just Feels A Bit Drab. So, Point To The Mazda 2 All. So, The Last And Decisive Category Its Personality Mike Is A Serious Wheelman Does The Cx-5 Make You Smile Absolutely It Sure Does The Cx-5 Owner They're Probably Looking More Forward To The Actual Drive Whereas The Force Their Owners May Be Thinking More About You Know What Kind Of Activities Are They Going To Do Once They Get To Where They're Going Now The 6'5 Is The Kind Of View The Driving Dynamics Put A Smile On Your Face The Other Thing About The Forester Is It's Kind Of Boring Looking These Days It Could Mistake It For One Of Like 20 Other Crossovers Out There The Cx-5 In Contrast.

I Mean It's A Great Looking Vehicle And To Me Part Of The Fun Of Owning A Vehicle Is Enjoying Looking At It Yeah. I Don't Really Enjoy Looking At The Forester. I'll Give You That And It's Not Really That Fun To Drive Either It's Certainly Easier To Drive Great Visibility Nice Big Old Mirrors And.

I Will Also Agree With You That The Forester Is The Sort Of Car You Have More Fun At Your Destination With All Of Your Fun Leisure Activity Equipment To Be Honest Janne Only One Of These Cars Sets Out To Be Genuinely Fun To Drive And That's Why. I'm Giving The Category To The Master It's Victory To Mike Master And The Cx-5, But Tell Us Would You Choose The Master Over The Scooby Be Sure To Click Here For Full Reviews Of Both The Cx-5 And The Forester And Subscribe To The Edmunds Channel For All The Latest Videos.
