Design and Features Compared: 2018 Subaru Crosstrek VS 2018 Mazda CX-5

Adventure comes standard on the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek, thanks to standard roof rails for extra cargo, stylish and protective lower body cladding and 8.7 inches of minimum ground clearance. With Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive coming standard on the Crosstrek, you can get just about anywhere and bring just about anything. Roof rails and all-wheel drive will cost you significantly more on the 2018 Mazda CX-5, and its lower ride height limits its all-terrain potential. Inside the 2018 Crosstrek, Subaru STARLINK™ keeps you connected, and the available 8" touch screen with navigation is the largest infotainment screen available inside either of these two crossovers.

Performance Compared: 2018 Subaru Crosstrek VS 2018 Mazda CX-5

Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive is the cornerstone of the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek and its off-road pedigree. Thanks to its horizontally-oriented BOXER® engine design, the Crosstrek has a low center of gravity for maximum stability and control. This combined with the standard Active Torque Vectoring, Limited-Slip Differential and available X-MODE® and Hill Descent Control make the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek much more capable than the Mazda CX-5. Whether you plan to venture off the beaten path or simply want extra grip on wet asphalt and gravel roads, you'll be better served by the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek than the 2018 Mazda CX-5.

Safety Tech Compared: 2018 Subaru Crosstrek VS 2018 Mazda CX-5

Thanks to its sturdy frame and the Subaru Global Platform, which currently underpins several Subaru models, including Crosstrek, the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek outperformed the 2018 Mazda CX-5 in crash tests. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the 2018 Mazda CX-5 only four out of a possible five stars for overall safety. The 2018 Subaru Crosstrek got all five stars, and it's also a 2018 Top Safety Pick selection by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. You can also add Subaru EyeSight™ for active safety features like Pre-Collision Braking, Lane Keep Assist and Adaptive Cruise Control.
