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.
