LODI, N.J., Oct. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The compact SUV category includes a variety of options sought after by individuals and families alike. Of course, traditional SUV body styles allow for a comfortable passenger experience and plenty of cargo space. The compact qualifier, however, is also targeted for its assurance of greater fuel efficiency and lower cost of ownership. An automotive sales analysis reveals that two vehicles have emerged as national favorites in this class, the Mazda CX-5 and Honda CR-V. In order to determine the practical merits of each automobile, Mazda of Lodi conducted a comparison of the two popular SUVs, focusing specifically on the value offered to New Jersey families.
Beginning at the most obvious level, the lower base MSRP of the 2014 Mazda CX-5 offers a greater initial value than the 2014 Honda CR-V. In addition to initial cost though, the Mazda CX-5 continues to provide ongoing value by achieving a greater fuel economy. According to EPA estimates, the Mazda CX-5 registers a combined fuel economy of 29 mpg whereas the CR-V registers only 26. Looking strictly at the dollars and cents involved in owning each of these SUVs, Mazda distinguishes the CX-5 as a greater value to New Jersey families.
Beyond initial cost of ownership and fuel savings, the 2014 Mazda CX-5 exhibits additional value through practical SUV function. Two of the main benefits of SUV ownership include passenger space and towing capability. With respect to these two benefits, the 2014 Mazda CX-5 remains the more valuable choice when compared with the 2014 Honda CR-V. Not only does the CX-5 offer more second-row passenger legroom, but the Mazda SUV can also tow 500 more pounds than the CR-V.
