Now, with the 2019 models beginning to become available, each claiming to be the best, the process is even more difficult!

But, don’t worry, that’s why we’re here to help! We believe that Medlin Mazda offers vehicles with the best value regardless of class, which is why we’re not afraid to put Mazda models against the newest competition to see how they stack up! For this comparison, we’re going to compare the 2018 Mazda CX-5 and the new 2019 Toyota C-HR, two very popular SUVs. We’re going to look at the efficiency, performance and interior space.

In terms of combined fuel economy, the 2019 Toyota C-HR holds the slightest edge over the 2018 Mazda CX-5. However, when you look at the context of the rest of the vehicle for both the Mazda CX-5 and Toyota C-HR, that edge becomes less impressive.

Considering how much more powerful and bigger the 2018 Mazda CX-5 is than the 2019 Toyota C-HR, it’s a wonder that it can even offer a fuel economy that’s even close to the Toyota C-HR. With the 2018 Mazda CX-5, drivers get a more well-rounded vehicle that offers efficiency, performance and space, rather than just efficiency like the 2019 Toyota C-HR.
