What is quality? An attribute or characteristic that someone or something has.
When it comes to vehicles, characteristics can mean, performance, cost, reliability, etc. For the sake of this article let’s talk about Mazda vs Toyota. How does the quality of Mazda compare to Toyota?
Compact crossovers are good for just about any task, from a road trip or a store run. They are reasonably priced and have so much to offer. If you are not sure if you should buy a Mazda or Toyota, take a look at the comparison of the Mazda Cx5 and Toyota RAV. It will help you decide which is best for you.
Toyota RAV4 vs Mazda CX5
The Toyota RAV4 has earned the same complaint from test drivers, the not so quiet acceleration. What doesn’t make the situation better is that its 8.2-second 60-mph is just close to average for its group.
With the bad comes good. The RAV4 is quite accommodating with comfortable seats, even for full grown adults. Strangely, a rear-facing child seat is a tight fit.
The Limited trim has a tan colored, French-seamed leatherette. This might cause some frustration if someone ever spills on it. In addition, the infotainment system has low-resolution graphics, making it seem a little dated. Lucky the audio system has a good sound with a volume and a tuning knob.
Visually, it works. Its more engaging driving charter add to the pros.
Mazda CX-5 vs Toyota RAV4
In the winners circle, is the 10Best-Winning Mazda CX-5. It is a game of quality over quantity with the vehicle. Its design, interior and driving character helped it get to the top spot.
From the moment you sit down in the CX-5 , you will be welcomed by a sleek interior and top-grade material that you will find in luxury brand vehicles. The upscale steering wheel is the only one of these two competitors that has a lot of shift paddles.
A small infotainment screen might be a downfall, but it is easily operated with audio and navigation functions that are controlled by a pair of knobs that are conveniently located on the center console.
Easy on the eyes cannot win this competition alone. The Mazda CX-5 is a very good drive. A near perfect throttle response makes this vehicle feel more powerful than it is. It ties the Toyota RAV4 for quietest at 70 mph.
One area that this vehicle does not measure up, is interior space. The backseat is a bit tight, therefore not too comfortable for everyone.
So, how does the quality of Mazda compare to Toyota?
While the Rav4 has components that match or better what the CX-5 offers, it is not put together in an equally compelling package.
