Which Mazda Crossover Should You Get?
At Rosen Mazda we are confronted with choices every day. Which kind of donuts should we get for the breakroom? Which restaurant should we order lunch from? It can be overwhelming some days. One thing we don’t have to choose is which great Mazda model to promote to our customers. They’re all great. We don’t envy our customers who have to make these difficult choices, but we are here to help.
For those who are looking for the best Mazda crossover vehicle, but can’t decide between the Mazda CX-3 and the CX-5, read on.
The CX-5 has more interior space, so if you’ve got a family to haul around and plenty of errands to the grocery store and sports practices planned for your vehicle, then you should consider this fact. That holds true for cargo as well as passengers. Adults in particular will appreciate the extra legroom in the CX-5. The two are pretty evenly matched on tech gadgets. For fuel economy, the CX-5 does have a slight advantage and for power the 2L engine in the CX-5 kicks out 155 horsepower to the CX-3’s 146.
If money matters to you and you’d like a great crossover at the best price then the CX-3 is going to be hard to beat. Starting at about 20 thousand for the base model, the Mazda CX-3 will save you a few thousand over the CX-5. Upgrades are available as well. Both vehicles received solid safety ratings so if you need to stick to a budget the CX-3 will save you a little. If size matters more, then the CX-5 would be the right pick and it’s really not that much more.
Like we said, with either of these crossovers, and Mazdas in general, you really can’t go wrong. There are differences, but they are minor considering the gap between these SUVs and their competition.
