Which SUV is better: Mazda CX-5 or Cherokee?

You should consider the price of course when it comes to any vehicle purchase, and when it comes to these two, the base MSRP of the 2020 Mazda CX-5 is a bit lower than the Cherokee, but that’s not the end of the money conversation. When it comes to efficiency, in the city the Mazda CX-5 is simply better despite having slightly more power and torque.

In the features department, there is a lot we could talk about, but adaptive cruise control is a big deal. This feature allows your car to adjust its cruise control speed down to match the speed of traffic so that you don’t have to keep constantly adjusting your speed setting. If the traffic speeds up or clears, then you go right back up to your desired speed.

Adaptive cruise control is a standard feature on many 2020 Mazda models including the 2020 Mazda CX-5. What’s strange is the Cherokee doesn’t include this feature at any trim level and instead you have to pay for an options package to add it in, once again making the Cherokee a more expensive proposition.

Lastly, the Cherokee, despite being physically longer than the Mazda CX-5, offers far less cargo room. If you have more stuff to carry, the 2020 Mazda CX-5 is your safe bet.
