VW vs Mazda: Under the Hood

Are you ready to find out what’s under the hood of the Volkswagen Tiguan and Mazda CX-5? First up, we have the new VW Tiguan. This SUV comes equipped with a 2.0L TSI® engine, which is paired with an 8-Speed Automatic Transmission with Tiptronic® Sport Mode, allowing you to shift manually and stay in control of your driving experience. This engine and transmission pair work together to create a remarkable 221 lb-ft of torque.

Although the 2020 Mazda CX-5 comes standard with an amazing engine, it doesn’t quite compare to the power the Volkswagen Tiguan brings to the table. The Mazda CX-5 is equipped with a 2.5L 4-Cylinder engine paired with a 6-Speed Automatic transmission. This engine and transmission duo produce 186 lb-ft of torque, which is great but quite a bit less than the torque the VW Tiguan offers, which means less power.

A Spacious Interior Cabin

If you are in the market for an SUV, chances are a model with an abundance of room is at the top of your wish list. Both the 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan and the 2020 Mazda CX-5 offer a comfortable seating arrangement that fits your passengers along with extra room to store all of your cargo, but the Volkswagen takes the gold over the Mazda in the space category.

In the VW Tiguan, you have enough seating for up to 7 passengers, which is more than what the average SUV offers. Plus, you and your passengers will be able to relax and stretch out during your rides with exactly 123.9 cubic feet of room for your passengers. For your belongings, enjoy exactly 65.7 cubic feet of cargo room when the seats are folded down.

As for the Mazda CX-5, it also offers a ton of space for your passengers and cargo, but unfortunately not enough to keep up with the Volkswagen Tiguan. The Mazda only offers seating for up to five passengers, and a total passenger volume of 103.6 cubic feet EPA cargo volume of 30.9 cubic feet when the rear seatback is up, and 59.6 cubic feet when the rear seatback is folded.

As you can see, the Volkswagen is the way to go if getting the most space out of your SUV if important to you.
