Are you looking at getting a new crossover SUV? Two of the top choices continue to be the 2021 Mazda CX-5 and 2021 Honda HR-V thanks to their commitment to safety and balance of efficiency and space.

Although, when getting a closer look at the 2021 Mazda CX-5 vs. Honda HR-V, our Mazda of Abington team noticed a few differences between the two.

A First-Class Driving Experience

One big difference between the Mazda CX-5 vs. Honda HR-V is their overall interior design. While the Honda HR-V offers available leather seating as well as an available leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, the 2021 Mazda CX-5 comes with an even more luxurious interior design.

With the Mazda CX-5, you’ll get both a leather steering wheel and gear selector standard. Plus, it offers the available Caturra Brown Nappa leather-trimmed seats, which feature premium stitching for an even more elegant look. This luxurious design is complete with the available genuine layered wood trim—something also missing from the HR-V.

MAZDA CX-5 vs Honda HR-V: Technology Features

2021 Mazda CX-5 Touchscreen Display

Along with its elegant design, the Mazda CX-5 also comes with many high-tech systems to make your ride even more enjoyable. That includes its 10.25-inch color display, which you can use to access your music, messages, and other applications by connecting your smartphone via Apple CarPlay™ or Android Auto™.

The Honda HR-V doesn’t come with quite as many connectivity and high-tech features. It only has a standard 5-inch LCD screen and Bluetooth® for streaming audio and making calls. To get the added capabilities of Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, which includes being able to display directions and have texts read to you, you’ll need to opt for a higher trim level of the 2021 HR-V.

When listening to your favorite songs, the 2021 Mazda CX-5 offers the available 10-speaker Bose® surround sound system, while the Honda HR-V has at most an available 6-speaker audio system.

Comparing the Performance of the MAZDA CX-5 vs HR-V

Both vehicles are pretty efficient SUVs, but where you will notice a difference here is in their overall handling and acceleration. The Mazda CX-5 comes with added power, whether you stick with its standard 187-horsepower 2.5L Skyactiv®-G engine or opt for the available 2.5L Skyactiv®-G turbo engine, which generates up to 250 horsepower and 320 lb-ft of torque.

All four trim levels of the 2021 Honda HR-V are powered by a 1.8L 4-cylinder engine that creates 141 horsepower and 127 lb-ft of torque. Along with its powerful engine performance the Mazda CX-5 also has the G-Vectoring Control Plus. This limits the steering adjustments needed so you enjoy a smoother and more controlled driving experience along every road.
