What Are the Differences Between the Mazda CX-5 and Hyundai Tucson?

More power, better fuel economy, an affordable price tag and a wealth of standard features make the Mazda CX-5 stand out in this 2019 Mazda CX-5 vs 2019 Hyundai Tucson comparison. A price tag that starts at $24,350 and a list of features that includes a 7-inch MAZDA CONNECT™ touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth, Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Smart City Brake Support, a rearview camera, keyless entry and push-button start promise to make the Mazda CX-5 Sport a fan favorite.

With an upgrade to Mazda CX-5 Touring, Grand Touring, Grand Touring Reserve and Signature trim levels, the 7-inch MAZDA CONNECT™ touchscreen infotainment system will add access to Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and much more. Available upgrades that promise to take your drive to the next level include a 10-speaker Bose® sound system, 19-inch alloy wheels, an Adaptive Front-Lighting System, a full-color Head-Up Display, heated and cooled front seats, heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel, Caturra Brown Nappa leather interior and wood interior trim.

Unrivaled performance is a hallmark of the 2019 Mazda CX-5 that will make the Mazda compact crossover stand out in this debate. A 187-horsepower 2.5-liter SKYACTIV®-G four-cylinder sets the bar high in the Mazda CX-5 lineup that when paired with a six-speed SKYACTIV®-Drive automatic transmission will earn 25 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway. With the addition of the intelligent Mazda i-ACTIV AWD® system, the entry-level Mazda CX-5 will still make 24 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway. Hyundai Tucson entries employ a lackluster 164-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that earns 23 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway.

Performance gets an upgrade when you choose Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring Reserve and Signature trim levels. Powered by a 250-horsepower 2.5-liter SKYACTIV®-G turbocharged four-cylinder engine that adds standard i-ACTIV AWD®, turbocharged Mazda CX-5 models will still achieve 22 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway – numbers the Hyundai Tucson cannot match. The Hyundai crossover upgrades performance with a 181-horsepower 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that will earn 22 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway.
