In the market for a new SUV? Two models that will prove to be capable companions for both the daily commute and weekend adventures are the 2022 Mazda CX-5 and the 2022 Subaru Forester. Both of these vehicles come ready to provide comfortable rides no matter where you have set as your destination.

Could either be a fit for you on the roads around Denton, Carrollton, and Flower Mound, TX? Find out with this Mazda CX-5 vs. Subaru Forester comparison from our team here at Denton Mazda.



Ready to Roam

Starting under the hood, you will find that the Mazda CX-5 and Subaru Forester have very similar engines. In fact, both come equipped with 2.5L 4-cylinder engines.

While this is the case, there is a slight difference in the output offered by each. The Subaru Forester’s engine produces 182 horsepower and 176 lb-ft of torque while the Mazda CX-5 comes ready to produce 187 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque. So, the Mazda will provide you with more muscle behind the wheel.

As you may have guessed, the Mazda SUV is also able to tow a bit more. Behind the wheel of the Mazda CX-5, you will have 2,000 pounds of standard towing capacity when properly equipped. The Subaru comes close, offering 1,500 pounds of standard towing capacity when properly equipped, which falls short of the Mazda.



Mazda CX-5 Interior

Sitting Inside the MAZDA CX-5 and Subaru Forester

Once you take a seat inside the Mazda CX-5 and Subaru Forester, you will find two comfortable cabins. Each comes ready to seat five comfortably with standard cloth seating appointments. Their respective cabins will allow you to easily travel with family as well as friends, which makes either SUV a great choice for upcoming weekend adventures.

However, you will find that the Mazda CX-5 comes standard with a leather-wrapped gear selector and steering wheel. These added features enhance your style behind the wheel, and do not come standard on the Subaru SUV.


Mazda CX-5 Technology

Stay Connected on the Go

Whether you are driving in the city or adventuring off the beaten trail, you will want to make sure that you have the ability to stay constantly connected behind the wheel. Fortunately, both the Mazda CX-5 and Subaru Forester provide you with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ functionalities, allowing you to seamlessly connect your mobile device with your ride.

As you look to load up these features, though, you will find that it is easier to do so behind the wheel of the Mazda CX-5. This is thanks to its large 10.25-inch full-color display, which provides a seamless multimedia experience. Conversely, the Subaru only comes with a standard 6.5-inch display.
