2020 Mazda CX-5 VS 2020 Nissan Rogue In Fort Collins, CO

If you’re in the market for a compact SUV that comes with top-notch performance, an opulent interior, and rounds it out with a striking design, you can’t go wrong with the Mazda! We’ve decided to put it up against one of its fiercest competitors, the 2020 Nissan Rogue, to show you why it won first place. After your read-through, visit us at 2Mazda (formerly known as Spradley Barr Mazda) for an unforgettable test spin!


We bet you’re probably wondering about the performance of these two models, so we’ll start there. Below the hood of the Mazda is a standard SKYACTIV®-G 2.5L 4-cylinder engine that delivers 187 horsepower and 186 lb.-ft. of torque to get you to your dinner date in a cinch. Sadly, the Rogue lacks in the power you’re after as its 2.5L 4-cylinder system cranks out 170 horsepower and 170 lb.-ft. of torque. The Mazda ups the ante with its available SKYACTIV®-G 2.5T Dynamic Pressure Turbo 4-cylinder powertrain, which supplies you with 250 horsepower and 320 lb.-ft. of torque, so you’ll arrive at your final destination ahead of schedule. It also comes with a standard 2,000-lb. towing capacity1, which makes it a breeze to pack on more camping gear or bring along a lightweight boat. With the Rogue, even on a higher trim, there’s no engine upgrade and the towing capacity2 tops off at 1,102-lbs., so you’ll have to leave some items behind.


Ready to look at the interior of the Mazda CX-5 and 2020 Rogue? First, once you’ve stepped inside, you’ll find the standard leather-wrapped gear selector and steering wheel for comfort and style as you cruise around in the Mazda. These amenities are available in the Rogue as well, but not on the base trim. While each provides you with an optional audio setup from Bose®, the Mazda includes 10 speakers placed throughout the cabin for supreme sound during each journey as opposed to the nine in the Rogue. And solely within the Mazda, you’re also going to have the handy Multifuntion Commander Control, which allows you to easily toggle between different screens on the infotainment center. This way, you can quickly select a radio station to listen to, choose a contact to call, or find messages without taking your eyes off of the road.


We’ll wrap things up with the exterior amenities of each compact SUV. When you’re driving around at night in the Mazda, its LED headlights will let you see and be seen. This light option is also available on the Rogue, however, once again, only if you upgraded to a higher trim level. As you make your way onto Route 287 in the Mazda model, other drivers will instantly take notice of the sleek body-color power side mirrors with LED turn signal indicators. While the Nissan also has body-color mirrors, to have the LED turn signal indicators, you’ll need to spring for the SV or SL trims. Last, but definitely not least, each model is equipped with standard 19×7-inch wheels that will undoubtedly turn heads while you cruise through town.

We hope our 2020 Mazda CX-5 vs 2020 Nissan Rogue in Fort Collins, CO, comparison proves the former takes the cake! Come by 2Mazda (formerly known as Spradley Barr Mazda) to check it out up close and personal and to see how easy it is to acquire the keys if you lease or finance with us. Our team can’t wait to meet you!
