2016 Mazda CX-5

2016 Mazda CX-5 vs 2016 Ford Escape near Navarre, FL

When you need a skilled and adventurous companion to brave grocery stores as well as the great outdoors, get behind the wheel of the winner of the competition between the 2016 Mazda CX-5 vs 2016 Ford Escape near Navarre, FL: the Mazda CX-5! From its exterior conveniences that add a modern touch to this wanderer, to cabin space and classy amenities that upscale the entire interior, the Mazda CX-5 is a wonder to behold. Visit Mazda of Fort Walton Beach today to test drive this compact crossover!

The Mazda CX-5 boasts massive capabilities, including its 2,000-lb. towing capacity1, which can be useful when you’re attempting a voyage across the East Bay and need to haul your vessel to the harbor. The Escape only barely catches up with a mere 1,500-lb. towing capability2. When you choose the Mazda CX-5, you’ll love its standard fuel rating of 26/34/29 MPG city/hwy/combined3. The Escape, on the other hand, only generates a 22/31/25 city/hwy/combined4 economy.

More interior space is provided in the Mazda CX-5, especially since it offers a vast 178.7-inch long body, which is a step above the Escape, which is only designed to be 178.1 inches long. Your backseat passengers will truly enjoy the spacious 39.3 inches of second-row legroom provided in the Mazda CX-5, but will be disappointed that the Escape only offers 43.1 inches of back legroom.

From this comparison of the 2016 Mazda CX-5 vs 2016 Ford Escape near Navarre, FL, anyone can tell how the Mazda CX-5 is just immensely more competent than the Escape, especially due to its exterior facade. The Mazda CX-5 integrates light alloy wheels, but you’ll feel weighed down with the Escape’s all-too-heavy steel wheels. The power side mirrors integrated with the Mazda CX-5 also include turn signals, so other drivers will surely notice your merging habits. However, the Escape refuses to offer this feature, instead only molding a solid black side mirror to its sides. Climbing into the front seat of the Mazda CX-5 means entering a cabin of pure luxury, including the optional Homelink®5 function, while the Escape simply does not offer this feature at all.

Come on down to Mazda of Fort Walton Beach to experience the Mazda CX-5 firsthand. From our comparison of the 2016 Mazda CX-5 vs 2016 Ford Escape near Navarre, FL, the former compact crossover takes the lead and destroys the competition. You won’t believe that it includes even more impressive features until you see them for yourself at our dealership!

Very friendly staff! I felt well taken care of. They have snacks for free while you wait in a very nice and clean lobby. Low volume TV's and plenty of magazines if you choose to wait there. Felt professional and my Mazda is running great, prices were fair.

Great service. Came down here from Indiana and had electrical problems the whole way. They fixed all my problems quick and at no charge. Would 100% recommend Mazda of Fort Walton Beach. Thank you to Nathan and the rest of the crew.

I brought my 2014 Mazda 3 to Mazda of Fort Walton Beach because I experienced heavy transmission friction noises during my drive down from Georgia. Their customer service manager Nathan handled my warranty claim in the most professional manner. I was granted with a loaner vehicle whilst my transmission had to be completely replaced after 35.5k miles. I truly appreciate the outstanding service provided by Mazda of Fort Walton Beach and yes, I will gladly return to these guys as a a happy customer.
