2017 Mazda CX-5 vs 2017 Ford Escape
Recent shifts in consumer interest and demands have led the automotive industry to develop crossovers and SUVs with heightened emphasis on efficiency and styling. Today we have two of the best performers in the midsize crossover class on display; the 2017 Mazda CX-5 and 2017 Ford Escape have built solid reputations for themselves in distinct but effective ways-the CX-5 through continuous improvement and workmanlike mentality, and the Escape by virtue of its iconic nameplate and high-class performance. Both crossovers are more than worthy additions to your family, but how well do they match up?
Our team at Mazda of Lodi wants to help you make an informed decision about which crossover is right for your current situation, so we decided to put the CX-5 and Escape up against each other. Without further ado let’s jump in and see what these two industry kingpins bring to the table!

2017 Mazda CX-5 in Bergen County NJ
Clearly, both the 2017 Mazda CX-5 in Bergen County NJ and 2017 Ford Escape are more than capable of providing the driving experience that you deserve. Both offer similar amounts of cargo volume and engine power for relatively similar price points, and feature exquisite styling both in their bodies and inside the cabin. However, there are distinct advantages that the 2017 CX-5 has over the Escape and its offerings. As part of one of the most fuel efficient model lines on the American market, the CX-5 offers higher mpg ratings than the Escape in both essential categories. The MazdaConnect™ infotainment system features more intuitive functionality than Ford’s SYNC-3 display, and media is played through an available Bose® surround sound speaker system, easily heading the class. In addition, the 2017 CX-5’s included i-ACTIVSENSE® safety suite helps to give you that much needed peace of mind behind the wheel, proving that in a select few, innovation and fun can intertwine seamlessly.
