Default Xcart 4 urls vs xcart 5 urls

If I migrate from XC4 to XC5, will there be any difference between the URL structure. Do I need to do mapping after the migration?

Depends on your current urls and how you migrate them.
XC5 requires end pages urls to end with .html. you can set all pages to end with / in CDSEO.
CDSEO - it allows to have "special" characters as part of the urls while XC5 won't allow them. Characters like "/" for example.
Following url "domain.com/this-is/my-page.html" where "this-is/my-page.html" is the page url will work with CDSEO as page url while in XC5 it will give you 404 error because the cart assumes "my-page.html" is the page url. Usually the "/" is used to show hierarchy.

Other than that you can migrate them as is and they should work

And if you are on 4.7.5, I wouldn't rush to upgrade. Make sure you like X-cart 5 first. It's a different shopping cart.
