First, one major benefit that the 2021 Mazda CX-5 offers is affordability. While both the CX-5 and Rogue are affordable for drivers, Mazda prides itself in adding luxury to its vehicles, thus giving commuters a higher value for the price they pay. For example, Adaptive Cruise Control is included standard with every 2021 Mazda CX-5 while the 2021 Nissan Rogue requires a trim upgrade. Another feature to look forward to with the CX-5 is the available cooled front seats, an amenity not available with the Rogue.
Performance is also a strong suit of the 2021 Mazda CX-5. Its standard 2.5L SKYACTIV®-G engine produces 187 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque, a close match to the Rogue’s slightly weaker engine. Drivers that choose to upgrade to one of the CX-5’s higher trims can enjoy the enhanced performance of its available 2.5L SKYACTIV®-G Dynamic Pressure Turbo engine with 227 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. Unfortunately for Rogue drivers, the 2021 Nissan Rogue only offers one standard engine, which means there is no option for better performance for that model.
