2016 Mazda CX-5 Sport vs. 2016 Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring
Stockton and Modesto drivers looking for a capable crossover with plenty of features often find themselves choosing between the 2016 Mazda CX-5 Sport and the 2016 Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring. Both are strong options, though the Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring naturally provides a little something extra. Here’s a quick rundown to help you choose between them.
Power and Efficiency
The 2016 Mazda CX-5 Sport draws up to 155 hp and 150 lb-ft of torque from a 2.0L four-cylinder engine. Paired up with a six-speed manual transmission system as standard, it returns an impressive 26 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway.
That’s a strong blend of performance and efficiency, though serious off-roaders or Stockton and Modesto drivers who prefer to edge towards power will be more satisfied with the Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring’s 2.5L four-cylinder, which can put up to 184 hp and 185 lb-ft of torque at your disposal. Efficiency ratings come in at 26 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway with front-wheel drive or 24 mpg city and 30 mpg highway with all-wheel drive — so the Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring, though it doesn’t match the Mazda CX-5 Sport, is still quite economical.
The Mazda CX-5 Sport will impress Stockton and Modesto drivers by providing plenty of premium features as standard, including 17-inch alloy wheels, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, cruise control, a four-speaker sound system with a CD player, and full power accessories. If you’re looking for an entry-level crossover model that delivers everything you need for everyday driving, the Sport might be just up your street.
Of course, the 2016 Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring comes with several state-of-the-art features, as befitting its status as a top-of-the-line model. Some of these features include:
- Automatic Headlights
- Automatic Windshield Wipers
- Dual-Zone Automatic Climate Control
- Heated Front Seats
- Leather Upholstery
None of these features are strictly necessary, but they will improve your comfort during each and every drive, so the Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring is often a top choice among those who spend plenty of time on the road.
In addition to its superlative standard features, the 2016 Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring can be picked up with options packages that are not available with the Mazda CX-5 Sport, including:
- Technology Package: Provides GPS navigation, adaptive LED headlights, running lights, and fog lights, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and the Smart City Brake Support System
- i-ACTIVESENSE Package: Your Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring will be kitted out with adaptive cruise control, a lane departure warning system, and automatic high beam headlight control.
