2021 Nissan Rogue vs. 2021 Mazda CX-5 - The Understated Underdogs

2021 Nissan Rogue vs. 2021 Mazda CX-5 - The Understated Underdogs

It can be difficult to find the right compact crossover in a class filled with names such as Honda, Toyota, Volkswagen, and Ford. However, two underdogs of the class are redesigned and ready to rumble: the 2021 Nissan Rogue and the 2021 Mazda CX-5. With so many similar features, it is difficult to differentiate between the two.

 

2021 Nissan Rogue

 

The Automobile Journalists Association of Canada named the 2021 Nissan Rogue the Best Mid-Size Utility Vehicle in Canada, and there is not much higher praise than that. The start of a new generation for Nissan, the 2021 Rogue was completely redesigned inside and out with new exterior and interior styling, upgraded technology, and a more powerful engine. Starting at $28,498, Nissan offers the 2021 Rogue in three model configurations, which include standard features such as an 8-inch touchscreen NissanConnect multimedia system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, and 17-inch wheels.

 

For safety, Nissan provides many standard driver-assist features, such as automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, rear cross-traffic alert, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert.

 

2021 Mazda CX-5

 

Mazda gets a lot right in its classy CX-5 SUV, but one thing it does better than most competitors is offer variety. The CX-5 is offered in six trim levels across Canada. Mazda offers a lot of standard features, starting with the base level GX trim and its price point of $28,500. It is powered by a 187-hp four-cylinder engine but offers a 250-hp turbocharged version as an upgrade; both are paired with a six-speed automatic transmission.

 

The 2021 Mazda CX-5 includes many standard features, even on its base model, including heated front seats, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, 8-inch touchscreen display with Mazda Connect, and driver-assist features such as smart city brake support, advanced blindspot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and a rearview camera.

There is a lot to like about the 2021 Mazda CX-5, but it is easy to see in a head-to-head comparison that the 2021 Nissan Rogue offers more--especially in terms of safety features and cargo capacity. Both vehicles might be considered compact crossovers, but the Rogue offers the space that many drivers want and need.
