The Mazda CX-5 has quietly moved up in the ranks, nowadays feeling more like a luxury crossover than its price would suggest. The Toyota RAV4 carries a more adventurous appeal, but unless you upgrade to the TRD Off-Road model, it's really no more off-road savvy than the CX-5.
Inside, the Mazda CX-5 has a 10.3-inch central touchscreen that easily outdoes the Toyota RAV4’s standard 7-inch display. And at any level the CX-5's quality materials and soft-touch surfaces far out-class the RAV4 for interior comfort. At its most refined, the 2021 Mazda CX-5 features Nappa leather upholstery and real wood accents, among other things. Other features available in the Mazda CX-5 include the Bose® premium audio system, heated/ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, rain-sensing wipers, and so much more.
Both crossovers have standard automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, radar cruise control, lane-keeping assist, and automatic high beams – but only the Mazda CX-5 has blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert built into the starting price as well.
