A crossover is a unique vehicle that is built on a car’s platform but utilizes the features of an SUV. It is a largely inundated category and can be overwhelming to choose just one. At Lester Glenn Mazda, we compiled the specs and amenities of three popular models to help you decide which one best suits you.

We compared the base models of the 2018 Mazda CX-5, GMC Terrain, and Nissan Rogue Sport. After comparing several features, we can confidently say that the Mazda CX-5 is an excellent choice.

The 2018 Mazda CX-5 is a compact crossover available in three trim levels: Sport, Touring, and Grand Touring. Its 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine generates the most horsepower at 187 and gets 186 lb-ft of torque. It also utilizes a six-speed automatic transmission.

It is the only model with the option for adaptive cruise control, a feature that intuitively adjusts your speed in tandem with the vehicle in front of you. It is also the only crossover with an option for a programmable garage door opener and the only choice with both HD and Satellite radio.

The Mazda CX-5 is a great vehicle for your passengers. It boasts the most passenger volume at 104 cubic feet and the only option with standard rear map lights and carpeted floor mats. It still provides the most interior cargo space, even with the extra passenger room. And it features the option for a cargo net, which the GMC Terrain and Nissan Rogue Sport do not offer.
