For families in Turlock who need a vehicle that can handle bad weather and various road conditions with ease while also filling up a big load of kids and cargo for the weekend, the 2018 Mazda CX-5 and 2019 Subaru Forester are both strong choices. However, the CX-5 comes out on top in terms of:

  • Handling
  • Standard engine performance
  • Affordability

Explore both models here, and then make your way to Tracy Mazda in Tracy.

On-Road Driving Dynamics

The 2018 Mazda CX-5 serves up sport sedan-like driving dynamics thanks to a number of specialized features made for responsive and sophisticated steering and handling, including:

  • SKYACTIV®-VEHICLE DYNAMICS with G-Vectoring Control
  • SKYACTIV®-Body and chassis with ultra-high tensile-strength steel

Neither of these features are offered on the 2019 Subaru Forester, making the CX-5 the clear choice for those who want a more responsive driving experience from their SUV.

Standard Engine Power

Both of these SUVs are offered with capable all-wheel drive (AWD) systems, but the 2018 Mazda CX-5 serves up more dynamic and responsive on-road performance and gets more power under the hood:

  • 2018 Mazda CX-5 – The Mazda CX-5 comes standard with a 2.5L SKYACTIV®-G 4-cylinder engine that generates 187 hp and 186 lb-ft of torque.
  • 2019 Subaru Forester – The Forester also gets a standard 2.5L 4-cylinder engine, but it only makes 182 hp and 176 lb-ft of torque.


The 2018 Mazda CX-5 edges out the 2019 Subaru Forester when it comes to affordability:

  • 2018 Mazda CX-5 Price – MSRP from $24,150
  • 2019 Subaru Forester Price – MSRP from $24,295
