Comparison: 2021 Mazda CX-5 vs 2021 Toyota RAV4
Auto123 compares the 2021 Mazda CX-5 and 2021 Toyota RAV4 compact SUVs.
Everyone loves a rivalry. Ali v Frazier. Leafs v Habs or Oilers v Flames. Kim v Kanye (is that a thing?). We love them because they tap into our animal instincts, our drive to succeed and, if we’re honest, they’re entertaining.
As far as rivalries in the car world go, one of the most heated we see these days occurs in the compact crossover segment between the Mazda CX-5 and the Toyota RAV4 – you could throw a vast number of other vehicles into this mix but we’re looking at these two today because at one time, they represented the opposite sides of the CUV segment. There was the stylish, sporty Mazda in one corner, and the massive-selling but fairly conservative RAV4 in the other. The rest of the group – the CR-V, the Tucson, the Escape, the Rogue – all kind of fall somewhere in between these two on a spectrum between the two.
