Improved interior space and better performance in the 2021 Honda CR-V

The 2021 Honda CR-V offers plenty of space for rear seat passengers as well as plenty of shoulder and head space up front. While the CR-V is one of the most spacious options in its class, the 2021 Mazda CX-5 is actually one of the smallest compact SUVs you can buy. If we look at just cargo space, we find that the CR-V has over 1,100 litres of cargo space with all seats in place while the CX-5 only offers 875. If you lower the rear seat, you get nearly 500 litres more total cargo space than the CX-5. This makes a huge difference when we are looking for an SUV because we need a lot of space.

Moreover, the 2021 Honda CR-V also offers a more powerful engine. It is powered by a turbocharged 1.5-litre engine that delivers 190 horsepower and 174 lb.ft. of torque. This engine is not only more powerful, but it is also more fuel-efficient with an average fuel consumption rating of just 8.1 litres per 100 kilometres with all-wheel drive. In other words, the turbocharged engine will deliver better performance with quicker passing and more confident accelerations, but it is also very fuel-efficient. The base engine in the CX-5 is a 2.5 L 4-cylinder that is not turbocharged and delivers 187 horsepower. The difference isn't huge, but you will notice it on the road and the CR-V will give you better overall performance.
