2020 MAZDA CX-5 vs 2020 Ford Escape

Serving Troy, MI

Are you searching for the perfect balance of functionality, style, and modern comforts in a new SUV? When you take a closer look at the 2020 Mazda CX-5, you may quickly discover that this compact crossover SUV lives up to your high expectations perfectly. The 2020 Ford Edge is in the same automotive class as the Mazda CX-5, so you need to know how these two popular models differ before you can take home a new SUV with confidence.

Exterior

When these two crossover SUVs are placed next to each other, you can immediately visualize some of their essential differences. The Mazda CX-5 has modern appeal with undulating, smooth surfaces that turn heads on the road. The hood remains confidently elevated with only the slightest descend into the bold grille. The black grille holds the chrome Mazda logo, and this grille is highlighted along the lower perimeter with a chrome accent piece. This piece follows along the lower perimeter of the grille before edging outward into the LED lights. From front to rear, the 2020 Ford Edge carries different design elements. The nose is rounded, and the small grille is placed lower on the front fascia. With this lower placement, the grille is separated from the headlights. The unique profile is defined by a rounded roof and a flat hood that waits until the last minute to roll into the grille.

Interior

Both of these models offer passenger seating for five adults with fold-down functionality in the rear row. They also come with a sound system, multimedia equipment, a climate control system, mounted tabs on the steering wheel, and a few other items. However, the design differences between these SUVs are striking. The Mazda CX-5 has contemporary flow with linear design elements on the dashboard and with connectedness from the center stack to the panel. The color screen for the infotainment system is placed slightly back from the center stack and rises above the dashboard. The Escape, on the other hand, has a segmented design scheme. There are separate sections in the center stack and console for the climate control system, the display screen, the sound system, storage, and the gear selector.

Performance

Several powertrains are available for you to explore across the trims for both of these vehicles. The Mazda CX-5, for example, is available with a 4-cylinder, 2.5-liter engine that gives you 187 horsepower, and it is linked to a front-wheel-drive drivetrain. Top Mazda CX-5 trims are powered by a 4-cylinder, Dynamic Pressure Turbo 2.5-liter engine that generates 250 horsepower. It is accompanied by all-wheel drive. Across the 2020 Escape's trim line, you will find that the 1.5-liter EcoBoost powertrain is most common, and it is associated with an automatic 8-speed transmission. Other powertrains that are optional or standard at higher trim levels are a 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine and a hybrid engine.
