Even without Honda Sensing, the Mazda CX-5 includes plenty of standard safety features that are either not available or available at an extra cost on the CR-V. These include:

  • Advanced Blind Spot Monitoring – alerts you when a vehicle enters your blind zone.
  • Rear Cross-Traffic Alert – notifies you of vehicles approaching from the side as you’re backing out of a parking space.

Mazda CX-5 vs. CR-V: Reviews

When it comes to favorable reviews, Edmunds had plenty to boast about for each model. More specifically, the reviewers at Edmunds liked that the CX-5’s styling “makes rival midsize SUVs seem generic by comparison.”

Edmunds likes the Honda SUV’s “capable acceleration, composed handling, and confident highway manners.” However, they also recommend you “skip the base LX model” in order to get the features you need.
