2020 Honda CR-V vs. 2020 Mazda CX-5: Compare Crossover SUVs

The 2020 Honda CR-V and 2020 Mazda CX-5 sell two different flavors of practical: hardcore and softcore. The refreshed 2020 Honda CR-V goes by the numbers, whether they’re fuel economy or interior room; it provides one of the roomiest interiors in the class and trades on Honda’s well-earned reputation for reliability, but it’s not the value it once was. The aging 2020 Mazda CX-5 woos with its softly rounded shape and sharp steering; it puts performance first even as Mazda continues to climb into the premium segment with its Signature trim level.
