Our Normal customers know the joy of driving a Mazda SUV. The sleek look, the great performance, the cool features; there’s lots to be excited about! But if you’re thinking about buying one of these amazing vehicles, you have a tough decision in front of you – which one do you choose? To help you decide, we’ve done a detailed, side-by-side crossover comparison of two great Mazda SUV models: the 2020 Mazda CX-3 vs. 2020 Mazda CX-5.
The Mazda CX-3 is the lower-priced Mazda SUV model, with an MSRP of $20,640**, compared to $25,190** for the Mazda CX-5. Another reason the 2020 Mazda CX-3 is the more economical choice in this crossover comparison fuel economy. At 34 highway mpg, it gets slightly better EPA-estimated gas mileage than the Mazda CX-5, which still gets a very respectable 31 highway mpg.*
The 2020 Mazda CX-5 will appeal to our Springfield customers who want more power from their vehicles. The 2.5 Liter engine in the Mazda CX-5 delivers more power than the 2.0 Liter of the economical Mazda CX-3. There are 187 horses under the hood of the Mazda CX-5, compared to 148 for the Mazda CX-3. Likewise, expect to get 186 lb-ft of torque from the Mazda CX-5, compared to 146 lb-ft from the Mazda CX-3.
Any crossover comparison needs to talk about cargo space. The Mazda CX-5 is the roomier of these two Mazda SUV models and offers 30.9 cubic feet of cargo (expandable to 59.6 cubic feet) while the CX-3 has 17.8 cubic feet (expandable to 42.7 cubic feet).
Your passengers will also have more space in the Mazda CX-5 with 103.6 cubic feet of passenger volume compared to the CX-3’s 87.6 cubic feet. It translates into more space for rear passengers, too — with the Mazda CX-5 offering 39.6 inches of rear legroom, compared to 35 inches in the Mazda CX-3.
