In terms of power and performance, the 2016 Nissan Rogue and the 2016 Mazda CX-5 are well matched. But there are considerable differences if we look at the base trim of each vehicle, since they’re the most financially comparable. The 2016 Nissan Rogue is powered by an efficient 2.5-liter I-4 engine that produces 170 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. This engine pairs nicely with the standard, fuel-efficient continuously variable transmission with overdrive.
The base 2016 Mazda CX-5 is powered by a 2.0-liter I-4 engine that produces just 155 horsepower and 150 lb-ft of torque. This engine is paired with either a manual or an automatic transmission, depending on your preference. Something to keep in mind with the CX-5: Although the vehicle is offered with a more powerful engine and an automatic transmission, these options vastly increase the price, making it a questionable option for buyers looking to keep the budget reasonable.
If you’re shopping for a family-friendly vehicle like the Nissan Rogue or the Mazda CX-5, you know the importance of interior space. Between piling in the groceries and keeping the kiddos and other passengers comfortable, an inch here or there can make a huge difference. But in the Nissan Rogue, you’ll enjoy 2 full cubic feet of extra passenger volume than in the Mazda CX-5. In addition, your passengers will get another 1.5 inches of front headroom and 2 inches of front legroom than in the Mazda. Of course, that translates into comfy parents and happy kiddos.
