2018 Mazda CX-5 Sport vs. 2018 Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring

The 2018 Mazda CX-5 Sport and 2018 Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring share plenty of fantastic benefits, including:

  • Spacious 5-passenger seating
  • A spritely 187 hp and 186 lb-ft of torque from a 2.5L four-cylinder
  • Up to 25 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway
  • Up to 59.6 cubic feet of cargo space

However, they’re very different shades of the same show-stopping crossover SUV, so it makes sense to compare these two 2018 Mazda CX-5 models head-to-head.

Mazda CX-5 Sport

Starting at $24,150, the 2018 Mazda CX-5 Sport is one of the best-equipped standard models in the crossover SUV segment, with features including:

  • 7-Inch Touchscreen
  • Rearview Camera
  • Forward Collision Warning
  • Blind-Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert
  • Two USB Ports
  • LED Headlights

Rare for an SUV, the Mazda CX-5 Sport also offers driver-assist technologies through the available i-ACTIVSENSE® package, which includes:

  • High Beam Control
  • Lane Departure Warning with Lane-Keep Assist
  • Mazda Radar Cruise Control with Stop & Go
  • Smart Brake Support
  • Auto On/Off Headlights
  • Rain-Sensing Variable-Intermittent Windshield Wipers

Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring

Starting at $29,645, the Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring trim receives all i-ACTIVSENSE® features as standard, plus a powerfully tempting selection of features, including:

  • 10-Speaker Bose Sound System
  • Power Liftgate
  • Active Driving Display with Traffic Sign Recognition*
  • Satellite Radio
  • GPS Navigation

But it’s probably in terms of comfort that the Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring shines brightest. If it’s chilly across Gastonia, activate heated front and second-row outboard seats,* heated steering wheel,* and windshield de-icer.* If it’s warm in Kings Mountain, use your dual-zone automatic climate control system. If you’re stuck in Kings Mountain traffic, simply relax into the leather upholstery.

Which Mazda CX-5 Trim Level is Right for You?

For basic daily driving, the 2018 Mazda CX-5 Sport delivers everything you could desire at a strong price point, plus the same outstanding SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY performance you can expect from all Mazda CX-5 trim levels.

The Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring starts a bit higher, but those who drive frequently or simply have a taste for upscale features and fittings will likely find themselves more at home within its indulgent cabin.
