In the past few years, more and more drivers near Ellicott City, MD are shopping for family-friendly, fuel-efficient SUVs that can also hold their own when they leave the pavement. If you’re one of these shoppers, you’ve likely come across both the 2020 Mazda CX-5 and the 2020 Subaru Forester in your research. While these two SUVs share some similar features, when closely compared, one of them stands head and shoulders above the other. Find out which one it is from our team at Heritage Mazda Catonsville.


One of the most important considerations for SUV shoppers is how powerful the vehicle is. Looking under the hood of the base versions of the 2020 Mazda CX-5 near Ellicott City, MD, you’ll find a four-cylinder engine that cranks out 187 horsepower. Upgrading to the Grand Touring Reserve and Signature trims gets you an upgraded Skyactiv®-G 2.5T engine that is good for 250 horsepower and 320 lb-ft of torque. In comparison, the four-cylinder engine that is found in all models of the Subaru Forester only puts out 182 horsepower. There is no additional engine.


When it comes to convenience and tech features designed to make your commute go faster, one of these vehicles stands apart. The 2020 Mazda CX-5 features an available Active Driving Display that projects vital information onto the windshield, including safety system information. There is no similar feature found in the Subaru Forester. Finally, the Mazda SUV has an available Bose® sound system, and while the Subaru Forester has a sound system as well, it cannot compare to the 10-speaker high fidelity Bose® system.
