Interior Amenities for Added Comfort

The Subaru Outback and Mazda CX-5 each have similar features available inside to make your ride more comfortable and enjoyable. They both have available heated front and rear seats as well as an available heated steering wheel. But beyond keeping you warm, the 2020 Mazda CX-5 also has available ventilated front seats. Yet we have to hand it to the 2020 Subaru Outback…it offers them, too. We suspect that these are going to be incredibly useful given the weather in Florida.

Also, each SUV has available leather seats you can opt for. The Caturra Brown Nappa leather-trimmed seats available in the Mazda CX-5 provide a superior luxury feel along with the available genuine layered wood trim.
