The RAV4’s base engine is a lot more powerful than the CX-5. The RAV4 also offers a hybrid powertrain option. That said, the Mazda CX-5 has an additional powertrain option on offer. The turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that is also available for the CX-5, produces up to 250 horsepower and 320 pound-feet of torque.
The CX-5 comes with cloth-trimmed seats as standard. Upgrading to higher trims get you synthetic or genuine leather upholstery along with power-adjustable, heated, and ventilated front seats. Optional features like a heated steering wheel, heated rear seats, and rear center armrest are also offered. The RAV4 has a lot more on offer considering that it gets power-adjustable front seats as standard even on the base trim. However, the fit-and-finish quality of the CX-5’s cabin far surpasses the RAV4. Also, its front-row seats are not as comfortable as the CX-5’s front seats.
All CX-5 trims come with a 10.25-inch touchscreen display as standard. It is equipped with Wi-Fi Hotspot, Mazda Connected Services, a four-speaker sound system, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth connectivity, two USB ports, and HD Radio as standard. Optional features like dual-zone automatic climate control, satellite radio, navigation system, a six- or 10-speaker Bose premium sound system, a seven-inch digital instrument cluster, two rear USB ports, ambient interior lighting, and moonroof are also available. The RAV4’s infotainment is not as well equipped as it gets a smaller seven-inch touchscreen display. The CX-5’s infotainment system works really well.
