But maybe you’re a comparison shopper, like a lot of our Fairview. You’re not just interested in comparing the Mazda CX-3 vs. the Mazda CX-5. You want to know how it stacks up against the competition. That’s why we’ve put together this detailed comparison of the Mazda CX-5 vs. the RAV4 from Toyota. We think there’s no contest. Let’s talk about why the Mazda CX-5 wins this match-up hands-down.

MAZDA CX-5 vs. RAV4: Towing Capacity

You can see from the table above that the new Mazda CX-5 outclasses the Toyota RAV4 when it comes to towing capacity. We’re talking 2,000 pounds compared to 1,500 pounds. We don’t know if you do a lot of towing around the Collinsville area, but we bring it up to demonstrate the raw power under the hood of the Mazda CX-5. You would think that kind of power would mean sacrificing fuel efficiency, but the Mazda CX-5 and RAV4 get around the same gas mileage. How is that possible? Mazda Skyactiv® Technology.

Exclusive to Mazda – Skyactiv® Technology

Skyactiv® Technology is an amazing accomplishment of Mazda engineering, encompassing everything from the engine to the tiniest details in the vehicle’s build. And you won’t find it in the Toyota RAV4. Here are some of the incredible facets of Skyactiv® Technology:

  • Skyactiv®-G Engines – designed to get the maximum compression out of every drop of fuel to deliver an impressive amount of power without sacrificing fuel efficiency.
  • Skyactiv®-Drive Transmissions – built to produce the smoothest possible transition from gear-to-gear.
  • Skyactiv®-Vehicle Dynamics with G-Vectoring – engineered to shift weight around the vehicle to achieve incredibly smooth handling of curves.
