Hyundai Tucson vs Mazda CX-5

When it comes time to get where you need to go, do so in a car you love to drive in Columbia, Lexington and Irmo. In the compact SUV category, the 2018 Hyundai Tucson and Mazda CX-5 stand out as great options.

Peacock Hyundai Columbia seeks to inform drivers in the area of their vehicle choices. In this comparison, we'll take a closer look at the Tucson and CX-5 and consider important topics, such as interior quality and amenities, tech features, and vehicle reliability.

Tucson vs CX-5 Interior Comfort

We'll start by taking a look at the interior of these two vehicles. After all, that's where you're going to be spending so much time. There's plenty of room to stretch out in the Tucson to the tune of 41.5 inches of front legroom. With that kind of room, even longer drives are comfortable.

Along with the front legroom, easily load up the Tucson with luggage or gear for that next weekend trip. The Tucson has 61.9 cubic feet of storage space with the rear seats folded down. You don't have to think about making that second trip to the store or leaving a piece of cargo at home.

The CX-5 can feel a little cramped at times, with 41 inches of front legroom. Meanwhile, with 59.6 cubic feet of cargo space, it doesn't quite match up to the Tucson.

Tech Features

We bring our technology wherever we go these days. It's nice to have a car that's up to the challenge. Inside the 2018 Hyundai Tucson, you'll discover an infotainment system that's ready to connect to your favorite tech, including popular apps. The available 8-inch touchscreen with navigation capabilities means you always have a guide to your next destination.

On top of that, you'll be able to access your music library, text messages, and many other applications with optional Apple CarPlay™ or Android Auto™. Just link a compatible smartphone to the touchscreen, and you'll have a mirror image of your phone right on the touchscreen.

The Mazda CX-5 does feature some helpful amenities, but it doesn't come with the option to upgrade from a 7-inch screen. Without Apple CarPlay™ or Android Auto™, you won't be able to play music or read text messages without having to look down at your phone.

Hyundai vs Mazda Warranty

There's another key difference between the Tucson and the CX-5. While both cars have outstanding reputations, the Tucson comes with an extensive warranty to back it up.

Here's a closer look at the warranties:

  • Basic Months: 60 vs. 36
  • Basic Miles: 60,000 vs. 36,000
  • Powertrain Months: 120 vs. 60
  • Powertrain Miles: 100,000 vs. 60,000
  • Corrosion Perforation Months: 84 vs. 60

These are some clear differences between these two cars. Want to plan for the future? The Hyundai Tucson lets you do it better than the Mazda CX-5.
