Both the Mazda CX-5 and the Hyundai Tucson make 187 hp, but the CX-5 gains a slight advantage when it comes to torque, meaning it will perform better in off-road conditions. However, the biggest ace up the Mazda CX-5's sleeve is the availability of standard all-wheel-drive across all its trims. The 2022 CX-5 comes standard with Mazda's intelligent i-Activ all-wheel-drive system, while the Hyundai Tucson offers AWD, but it's only optional and not standard.
The 2022 Mazda CX-5 also features the new and improved SKYACTIV®-Drive 6-speed automatic transmission with manual shift, and Sport mode offers smoother and quicker gear shifts. Another huge advantage the 2022 Mazda CX-5 has over the 2022 Hyundai Tucson is the option of turbocharged SKYACTIV-G 2.5L Dynamic Pressure Turbo engine on the higher-end CX-5 2.5 Turbo, and Turbo Signature trims. This turbocharged engine produces 250 horsepower, taking things to a whole new level and giving you a rush of adrenaline. Overall, the 2022 Mazda CX-5, with its standard AWD, the additional turbo engine option, and more premium looks, trumps the 2022 Hyundai Tucson in our comparison.
