2014 Mazda CX-5 vs. 2014 Ford Escape Titanium

Today’s drivers who are looking for a new compact crossover for the 2014 model year have got a lot of great options. This comparison focuses on two especially strong examples of the category: the Mazda CX-5 and the Ford Escape. Both are compared at their highest trim levels: the Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring is the most luxurious version of the popular vehicle, and the Escape is being discussed at its Titanium model level, which is the most well-equipped Escape money can buy. How do these two ultra-comfortable, versatile family vehicles measure up to one another?

The first thing we can look at are the engines on the two vehicles. The Mazda CX-5 has got a 2.5-liter engine that offers 184 horsepower, while the Escape’s 1.6-liter falls a bit short with just 173 horsepower. One advantage, depending on your priorities, might be that the Ford Escape Titanium’s engine has intercooled turbo which is good for efficiency. However, you’ll see that the Mazda CX-5’s city mileage is actually better than that of the Escape, and equal to it on the highway. If you do a fair amount of city driving as part of your daily drive, this is something you may need to consider.

Head-to-Head on Features and Price

Because both models being compared are at higher trim levels, you’ll see a lot of the same great interior features available on both. For example, both the 2014 Mazda CX-5 and the Ford Escape offer dual-zone automatic temperature control, 8-way power driver’s seat, leather seat trim, voice recognition, and navigation. The Escape’s sound system is a 10-speaker Sony to the CX-5’s 9-speaker Bose, and the Mazda CX-5 has standard daytime running lights, while the Escape only offers them as an option.

As for the cost, if you want the 2014 Ford Escape Titanium you’re looking at an MSRP of $29,100. Owning the Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring is possible for quite a bit less, with an MSRP of $27,820. The lower price, combined with better city fuel economy and a more powerful engine, might just put the 2014 Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring ahead on this comparison.
