2020 Mazda CX-5 vs 2020 Subaru Crosstrek

When it comes to shopping for a new SUV, it's all about deciding what’s important to you. Drivers that need a small crossover that’s packed with features, has a stellar reputation for safety, and sips from the fuel tank at a cash-saving rate, you’re in the right place. Entries like the 2020 Mazda CX-5 and the 2020 Subaru Crosstrek do all this and much more, but there are some distinct differences you should know about and we're here to sort through them. The 2020 Mazda CX-5 vs 2020 Subaru Crosstrek comparison table below offers a quick dive into some main points of contention, so let's get to it.

Which Small SUV Has the Best Interior? 

The 2020 Mazda CX-5 is a stylish compact-crossover SUV that provides plenty of space for passengers in either row. The 2020 Subaru Crosstrek seems to straddle the line between compact SUV and hatchback, making its interior far more condensed in comparison. We’ve seen some evidence of this in the gap in cargo volume, but the sacrifice in space carries into the cabin area as well. More specifically, the CX-5 provides 3.1 inches more rear legroom and 2.7 cubic feet more passenger volume than the Crosstrek can muster up. 

At its absolute best, the Subaru Crosstrek has leather upholstery, heated front seats, an 8-inch touchscreen, and an 8-speaker Harman Kardon stereo. The Mazda CX-5 reaches higher in its features, offering options for high-grade Nappa leather seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, an 8-inch touchscreen, a 10-speaker Bose audio system, and much more.
