2015 Dodge Journey vs. 2015 Mazda CX-5

2015 Dodge JourneyIndian Head and Estevan drivers comparing the 2015 Dodge Journey to the 2015 Mazda CX-5 need a vehicle which offers power, choice, and a flexible interior. As Canada’s favorite crossover, the 2015 Dodge Journey can certainly accommodate just about anyone.

Price

The 2015 Dodge Journey starts at just $19,495, with the Canadian Value Package. Providing Indian Head and Estevan drivers with dual-zone air conditioning, premium cloth bucket seats, and a 6-speaker audio system with the Uconnect 4.3 multimedia centre, it’s one of the most advanced standard models available. From there, drivers are free to choose from nine other trim levels, including the stylish BlackTop and the high performance Rallye R/T.

The 2015 Mazda CX-5 offers less choice while demanding more money. You’ll be able to select from only three separate models, with a starting price of $22,995 meaning that you’ll need to spend at least $3,500 more than you would for the entry-level Dodge Journey.

Power

The 2015 Dodge Journey is fitted with a 2.4L I-4 engine as standard, which puts Estevan and Indian Head drivers in control of 173 horsepower and 166 lb-ft of torque while still maintaining optimal fuel efficiency. For those who want an extra kick, there’s the 3.6L Pentastar V6. A three-time winner of Ward’s ‘10 Best Engines’, the Pentastar boosts your output to an authoritative 283 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque.

The 2015 Mazda CX-5 also comes with two engine choices, either a 2.0L or 2.5L SKYACTIV-G. Each one is thoroughly outclassed by its Journey equivalent, with the former offering 155 horsepower and 150 lb-ft of torque, and the latter raising those figures to only 184 and 185.

Practicality

The 2015 Dodge Journey doesn’t just outperform the 2015 Mazda CX-5 when it comes to value and power – it also manages to offer Indian Head and Estevan drivers a higher degree of flexibility and practicality. While the CX-5 can only handle 5 passengers, the Journey can accommodate up to 7, and storage space tops out at 67.7 cubic feet compared to the CX-5’s 55. Whether you need to carry more cargo or more people, the Journey is the vehicle for you.

That space also functions intelligently, with a number of innovative storage solutions providing room to organize all of your belongings. These include:

  • Class-Exclusive Second Row Storage Bins: With room to store up to a dozen 355ml cans, and a removable liner to help keep the vehicle clean, these are a great addition to the Journey.
  • Flip ‘n Stow Fold-Flat Front-Passenger Seat: Provides a space to place your valuables whenever you’re away from the vehicle, far from the prying eyes of any potential thieves.
