2024 Honda CRV

Performance & Capabilities

If you look at the sheer numbers, it’s clear that the 2024 MAZDA CX-5 is the favorite compared to the competition. The base-level engine is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder that produces 187 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque which just loses out to the Honda CR-V, and its 1.5-liter four-cylinder with an output of 190 horsepower and 179 lb-ft of torque. The new Mazda SUV sets itself apart with its available turbo engine, which makes an impressive 256 horsepower alongside 320 lb-ft of torque.

Ride comfort is another important area of comparison where the Honda CR-V falls flat. It provides a comfortable drive with reliable handling and average acceleration, but the Mazda CX-5 contains several performance-focused features to remain unique. You’ll also receive standard i-ACTIV® AWD across the trim lineup.

Interior Showdown

Inside both the 2024 MAZDA CX-5 and the Honda CR-V, you’ll receive a surprising amount of cargo room. The Mazda CX-5 features an exterior design that’s more stylish than the Honda CR-V, but you’ll get just 30.8 cubic feet behind the second row compared to 39.3 cubic feet in the Honda CR-V. Both vehicles have an available hands-free power liftgate as an option.

The Honda CR-V may feature a larger seven-inch display, but it pales in comparison to the 10.25-inch screen you’ll find standard in the Mazda CX-5. A nine-inch version of the same screen can be included on the Honda CR-V, but it comes at an additional cost.
