Sport Utilities in the Fight: Mazda vs Kia

July 23, 2012 at 09:17

Today we have the fight between two Sport utility models. These two vehicles are currently owning the market in this section as they offer the greatest possible power, performance and also style. Today even sport vehicles are becoming more and more style conscious, therefore it is not even a surprise that we had to clash together the 2013 year Mazda CX-5 the Sport-Sport Utility trim and the 2013 year Kia Sorento SX Sport Utility trim.

If starting with price, we can see that Mazda is far more economic than Kia, as its price starts from $24,000 while Kia Sorento will cost you somewhere around $32,000. It is not the question even, that Mazda is totally in a plus-situation now, but let’s see at the engine, as this is the main picture we want to examine. Mazda is equipped with 2.0L 155hp I4, well, something that Mazda is known for, the low volume and relatively small horsepower, while Kia got the 3.5L 276hp V6. We must agree that is sound like a lot more power, but where will you ever utilize this power? On the fuel economy Mazda also wins around 5 mpg more in each sense (in the city and on the highway).

Therefore considering modern trends we must say that even though lacking some power, Mazda wins the fight!
