MAZDA CX-5 vs. Forester: Performance Capabilities

When it comes to performance the Mazda CX-5 vs. Forester are similarly matched, but the [email protected] 2.5L engine gives the Mazda a bit more oomph than you’ll find under the hood of the Subaru Forester: 

  • 2022 Subaru Forester: 182-hp 2.5L SUBARU BOXER® four-cylinder engine, 1,500- to 3,000-pound towing capacity
  • 2022 MAZDA CX-5: 187-hp Skyactiv®-G 2.5L four-cylinder engine, 2,000 towing capacity

The Subaru offers more towing capacity if you upgrade to a higher trim level, while the Mazda CX-5 towing capacity is higher than the lowest Forester capacity and plenty for a small camper, fishing boat, or trailer with your ATVs for a weekend out of Dartmouth. 

MAZDA CX-5 vs. Forester: Safety Technology

All-wheel drive helps both SUVs handle whatever Fall River brings your way, but slipperty roads aren’t the only hazard you might encounter. The Mazda CX-5 has a safety system that goes above and beyond to keep you safe and driving with confidence with features that include: 

  • Smart Brake Support with Collision Warning
  • Dynamic Stability Control and Traction Control
  • Radar Cruise Control with Stop & Go
