A red 2021 Mazda CX-5 | El Dorado Mazda in McKinney, Texas

If you’ve been searching for a compact SUV that doesn’t compromise on style, performance, and practicality, you’ve probably considered both the 2021 Mazda CX-5 and the 2021 Toyota RAV4. While both of these models are well suited to families, couples, and solo drivers alike, the Mazda CX-5 boasts some distinct advantages. Here’s what it has to offer over its Toyota rival.

Turbo Power

When it comes to providing a thrilling ride, Mazda is hard to beat. The Mazda CX-5 boasts an available turbo engine that delivers up to 250 horsepower and 320 lb-ft of torque. The Toyota RAV4, on the other hand, provides 203 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. On top of that, the Mazda comes with G-Vectoring Control Plus, which enables more responsive, intuitive performance. You won’t find that on the Toyota RAV4.

Room to Stretch Out

Whether you have growing backseat passengers, pets, or friends to bring along for the ride, a spacious cabin is a perk for any driver. You can stretch out and enjoy the journey in the Mazda CX-5 — it offers more headroom and more second-row legroom than the Toyota RAV4.

Unmatched Style

Only the Mazda CX-5 was created with the KODO: Soul of Motion design philosophy. This inspired approach to automotive styling gives the CX-5 swooping lines, eye-catching curves, and a profile that evokes speed — even when the vehicle is at a standstill. The Toyota RAV4, on the other hand, has a more run-of-the-mill appearance.

Accessible Luxury

Unlike the Toyota RAV4, the Mazda CX-5 offers a premium trim level, along with upscale standard features that make luxury accessible to everyday drivers. It boasts a streamlined, driver-centric cabin, complete with a standard 10.25-inch color display. If you’re looking for more, the top-of-the-line Signature model offers three-level front-seat heating and ventilation, Nappa leather seating, the Mazda Navigation System, and advanced safety innovations like the Traffic Sign Recognition System.


The Mazda CX-5 outclasses the Toyota RAV4 on a variety of fronts, but you don’t have to take our word for it. Experience the Mazda CX-5 for yourself, right here at El Dorado Mazda in McKinney, Texas.
