Dare To Compare: 2019 Mazda CX-5 vs. 2019 Nissan Rogue | Gastonia, NC

The SUV market is crowded with worthy options, and the 2019 Mazda CX-5 and 2019 Nissan Rogue continually prove to be popular choices. Both SUVs will have you driving in sleek style, but the 2019 CX-5 delivers a smoother, more powerful performance and a well-connected cabin to help keep you and your passengers loving every mile.


The standard SKYACTIV®-G 2.5-liter four-cylinder with Cylinder Deactivation and SKYACTIV®-Drive six-speed automatic transmission with manual-shift and Sport Mode in the 2019 Mazda CX-5 delivers more power than the standard engine offered in the 2019 Rogue, 187 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque vs. 170 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. The available SKYACTIV®-G 2.5-liter Dynamic Pressure Turbo four-cylinder engine with VVT delivers even greater power and more responsive driving experience with 227 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque (87 octane regular unleaded fuel), in the 2019 CX-5.


Safety features and technologies are priorities in both the 2019 Mazda CX-5 and 2019 Nissan Rogue, but the 2019 CX-5 has earned a special designation from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. When equipped with specific headlights, the 2019 CX-5 achieves the status of Top Safety Pick+. This is the highest rating from the IIHS, and is only applicable if a vehicle is able to pass six crashworthiness tests with a rating of “Good” as well as achieve a “Good” rating for headlights. Front crash prevention rating must also be either “Superior” or “Advanced.” The 2019 Nissan Rogue received the second-highest designation — in all crashworthiness tests, it was rated as “Good,” with nothing graded as “Superior” or “Advanced.”


Not that Mazda needs to toot its own horn, but the CX-5 has earned more nods than the Rogue. The experts at Car and Driver named the 2019 Mazda CX-5 to its 10Best Trucks and SUVs List while the Good Housekeeping Institute honored the model with a 2019 Best New Car award in the category of compact crossover SUV.
