One of the first things that stands out when comparing the 2022 Mazda CX-5 with the 2022 Volkswagen Tiguan is the availability of standard all-wheel-drive (AWD) on the 2022 Mazda CX-5. Mazda's clever i-Activ AWD technology is standard on every 2022 CX-5 level, whereas the 2022 VW Tiguan has 4Motion AWD as an option, although it adds to the overall price.
When it comes to performance, the Mazda CX-5 has a distinct lead over the VW Tiguan, with 187 horsepower vs. 184 horsepower for the Tiguan. Mazda's 2.5-liter Skyactiv® engine with cylinder deactivation is smoother and more fuel-efficient than the VW's 2.0-liter turbocharged engine. Despite having standard AWD, the CX-5 gets superior EPA MPG in city driving, making it excellent for your everyday travels in California. The CX-5 Turbo and CX-5 Turbo Signature grades also come with a 2.5-liter Skyactiv-G 2.5 Turbocharged engine that produces 256 horsepower and 320 pound-feet of torque.
