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.
