Safety

Both the 2018 Mazda CX-5 and the 2018 Toyota RAV4 offer access to advanced safety equipment like height-adjustable front safety belts, electronic stability control, lane departure warning, and much more, but only the Mazda has E911. With this system, if the CX-5 is involved in an accident, the crossover can notify emergency services and provide them with the vehicle’s location. The Toyota doesn’t have this capability, so if you’re in a collision you don’t have this option for calling for assistance.

Performance

The Mazda CX-5 is powered by a nimble 2.5L DOHC 4-cylinder powerplant capable of generating as much as 187-hp and 186 lb-ft of torque, giving the crossover a standard towing capacity of 2,000 pounds. With these specs, the CX-5 could easily handle a tent or utility trailer should you need to.

The RAV4 is also powered by a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine, but it only creates 176-hp and 172 lb-ft giving the little SUV just 1,500 pounds of standard towing capacity – not enough for most utility trailers.

Efficiency

Despite powerful horsepower and towing capabilities, fuel economy doesn’t suffer with the 2018 Mazda CX-5. This SUV achieves 25 mpg city and 31 mpg highway for a combined fuel economy of 28 miles per gallon. The 2018 Toyota RAV4, on the other hand, manages just 23 mpg city and 30 mpg highway, for a combined fuel economy of 26 miles per gallon.

Cabin Comforts

The Mazda is loaded with convenient interior features to make the daily drive more comfortable, including available remote vehicle start, heads-up display, optional rain-sensing windshield wipers, rear air-conditioning vents, and optional heated rear seats. The Toyota RAV4 doesn’t offer access to any of these features, effectively offering drivers less and asking more.
