2013 Mazda CX-5 — The All-New Compact Crossover SUV | Mazda USA
The CX-5 offers a manual transmission for better acceleration, control and fuel economy. The Honda CR‑V doesn’t offer a manual transmission.
For more complete vehicle control the CX-5 offers an optional manually controlled automatic, with the available convenience of an automatic transmission and the complete gear control of a manual transmission without the inconvenience of a clutch. A manually controlled automatic allows the driver to eliminate unwanted shifts and maximize engine braking by down shifting while cornering. The Honda CR‑V doesn’t offer a transmission that allows complete gear control.
A six-speed automatic is optional on the Mazda CX-5, for better acceleration and lower engine speed on the highway. Only a five-speed automatic is available for the Honda CR‑V.
Advanced Keyless Entry and Start optional on the CX-5 Grand Touring allows the driver to unlock the doors, cargo door and start the engine all without removing a key from pocket or purse. This eliminates searching for keys before loading groceries, getting in the car in bad weather or making a hurried start to your trip. The Honda CR‑V doesn’t offer an advanced key system.
The CX-5’s standard variable intermittent wipers have an adjustable delay to allow the driver to choose a setting that best clears the windshield during light rain or mist. The Honda CR‑V LX’s standard fixed intermittent wipers only have one fixed delay setting, so the driver will have to manually switch them between slow and intermittent. The CX-5’s optional wipers adjust their speed and turn on and off automatically according to the amount of rainfall on the windshield. The Honda CR‑V EX/EX-L’s manually variable intermittent wipers have to be constantly adjusted.
To help drivers see further while navigating curves, the CX-5 Touring/Grand Touring offers optional adaptive headlights to illuminate around corners automatically by reading vehicle speed and steering wheel angle. The Honda CR‑V doesn’t offer cornering lights.
CX-5’s optional rear view mirror has an automatic dimming feature. This mirror can be set to automatically darken quickly when headlights shine on it, keeping following vehicles from blinding or distracting the driver. The Honda CR‑V doesn’t offer the luxury of an automatic dimming rear view mirror.
