The 2019 Mazda CX-5 is the latest iteration of the beloved midsize crossover SUV, but the 2019 Subaru Outback has its fans, too. So in the 2019 Subaru Outback vs. Mazda CX-5 comparison, which is the better option for your Aurora or Plainfield commute? Just take a look at the specs.


2019 Subaru Outback or Mazda CX-5: Powertrains and MPG Ratings

Both the 2019 Mazda CX-5 and the new Outback are available with two engines. They’re comparable in a lot of ways, but the Mazda SUV has a slight edge.

  • Base Engines: Both vehicles come standard with different 2.5L four-cylinder engines, but Mazda’s offers more power, with 187 hp and 186 lb-ft of torque, outclassing the Outback’s 175 hp and 174 lb-ft of torque. The difference in output does not come at the expense of mpg ratings, though: both SUVs’ base engines offer up to 28 mpg combined city/highway.
  • Optional Engines: The 2019 Mazda CX-5’s optional engine is a 2.5L four-cylinder that bumps its output to 227 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque. The Outback’s available 3.5L V6 makes 256 hp and 247 lb-ft of torque. With the optional powertrains, the Outback falls behind offering only up to 22 mpg combined city/highway, while the Mazda CX-5’s available engine enables it to achieve as much as 24 mpg combined city/highway.

2019 Subaru Outback vs. Mazda CX-5: Features

There’s no question that both of these midsize SUVs offer lots of great features to enhance your drivers around Lisle, but the Mazda pulls ahead here as well. While Bluetooth, voice-activated audio controls, and daytime running lights all come standard on both, the Mazda CX-5 has some standard features that will cost extra on the Outback, including:

  • Limited slip differential
  • Bling spot monitoring
  • Rear cross traffic alert
  • Leather steering wheel
  • Signaling exterior mirrors

In addition, the Mazda CX-5 has some optional features that you can’t even get on the 2019 Outback, such as rain-sensing windshield wipers. And given the 2019 Mazda CX-5’s lower price, the difference in features is even more impressive.
