The Mazda CX-5 2.5 S has a standard SKYACTIV®-G 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine which makes 187 horsepower and 186 pound-feet of torque.

The Edge delivers an EPA-estimated 21/28 MPG (city/highway)1 but the standard Mazda CX-5 eclipses it with an EPA-estimated 24/30 MPG (city/highway)1, and the turbo-engine Mazda CX-5 delivers an EPA-estimated 22/27 MPG (city/highway).1

Mazda CX-5 vs. Ford Edge Interior Benefits & Features

The pricey base Edge SE offers a cloth-trimmed four-way manual driver's seat; the affordable Mazda CX-5 2.5 S offers a cloth-trimmed six-way manual driver's seat. However, the Mazda CX-5 2.5 Turbo dominates the Edge SE with a leather-trimmed eight-way power driver's seat with power lumbar, two-position memory, heating, and ventilation.

Deciding on a Ford Edge or Mazda CX-5 is easier with this in mind. In addition, the Mazda CX-5 2.5 Turbo goes even further with its heated, leather-trimmed steering wheel, leather-trimmed gear shifter, and heated rear seats.

Ford Edge vs. Mazda CX-5 features roll on with the Mazda CX-5 2.5 Turbo offering a standard dual-zone auto climate control system (tied with the Edge SE). A 10-speaker Bose® sound system (Edge SE has a six-speaker sound system). A power moonroof (the more-expensive Edge SEL has an optional sunroof).
