When comparing the 2022 Mazda CX-5 and the 2022 Volkswagen Tiguan, one of the first things that stand out is the availability of standard all-wheel-drive (AWD) on the 2022 Mazda CX-5. Every 2022 CX-5 trim comes standard with Mazda's intelligent i-Activ AWD system, while the 2022 VW Tiguan offers 4Motion AWD, but it's only optional and adds to its overall price.
Regarding performance, the Mazda CX-5 has a clear advantage over the VW Tiguan when it comes to horsepower with 187 hp compared to the Tiguan's 184 hp. Mazda's 2.5-liter Skyactiv® engine with cylinder deactivation is also more refined and fuel-efficient than the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine in the VW. Despite the standard AWD, the CX-05 has a better EPA MPG rating in city driving conditions, making it ideal for your daily Scranton commutes. You also get a 2.5-liter Skyactiv-G 2.5 Turbocharged engine that churns out 256 horsepower and 320 pound-feet of torque on the CX-5 Turbo and CX-5 Turbo Signature trims. On the other hand, the Tiguan comes with only one standard powertrain.
The 2022 Mazda CX-5 also has a more modern and dynamic appearance that fits the urban landscape more. The interior of the CX-5 is also the more well-equipped of the two, with features like:
All this and plenty more features put the 2022 Mazda CX-5 on top of its rival and make it the winner in our comparison.
