2017 Honda CR-V vs Mazda CX-5
If you’re in the market for a 5-passenger crossover, the 2017 Honda CR-V and 2017 Mazda CX-5 are both enticing options with spacious interiors and innovative technology features. Many drivers in Centennial, Denver, and Aurora are interested in learning more about each one, so Mile High Honda decided to take a closer look at their key similarities and differences.
Learn about the 2017 Honda CR-V and 2017 Mazda CX-5 in the following post before scheduling your test drive.
Designed with Family in Mind
The 2017 Mazda CX-5 and 2017 Honda CR-V are technically in the same segment, but you may not realize it by the look of their exteriors, which are styled with drastically different body lines and accents.
Both crossovers share the same basic silhouette: rounded shoulders, sleek sheet metal along their sides, and an arching two-box shape. Trendy headlights and a chrome grille create a sharp-looking front fascia to draw your eye to the 2017 Honda CR-V’s sophisticated profile, which houses an innovative interior package where every detail serves a purpose.
The exterior of the 2017 Mazda CX-5 opts for a more unconventional design, sharing a similar aesthetic to its siblings, the Mazda CX-3 and Mazda CX-9. Fashioned with a gaping mesh front grille, uncompromising body lines, and constricted, squinting headlights, the Mazda CX-5 may be too avant-garde for some tastes. The curvature along the Mazda CX-5’s sides create a dramatic look, though some may prefer the Honda CR-V’s design, which is more polished and approachable.
Climb Inside Your Interior Oasis
With accommodations for five passengers, spacious rear cargo areas, folding rear seats, and soft-touch materials throughout their cabins, the 2017 Honda CR-V and 2017 Mazda CX-5 offer flexibility and comfort to ensure every journey is a comfortable one. Both vehicles’ cabins were refreshed for the 2017 model year, offering improvements to their cargo areas, available amenities, and interior trimmings.

There’s a great deal to like about the CR-V, which offers 4.9 more cubic feet of cargo space than its outgoing version when its seats are folded down. Passengers also enjoy features like dual-zone automatic climate control—allowing occupants to set different temperatures to match their comfort level—and a multi-color touchscreen compatible with both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
- 2017 Mazda CX-5 Interior:
Mazda hasn’t released the interior dimensions for the 2017 CX-5 at the time of this comparison’s writing, though we anticipate the size of its cargo area to be like its predecessor, which provided a total of 65.4 cubic feet of space. The 2017 Honda CR-V, comparatively, provides a total of 75.8 cubic feet. Like the CR-V, the 2017 Mazda CX-5 offers a touchscreen and mobile device integration through Mazda Connect.
