CX-5 vs. Competitors for Sale in West Springfield, MA


The era of crossovers and SUVs is definitely upon us. For the foreseeable future, the utility vehicle segments are expected to continue their domination, since so many people want that kind of accommodation – both in roominess and amenities. If you’re shopping within the three-row SUV class but don’t want a model that looks like a mere copy-and-paste from the sea of options, the three-row 2020 Mazda CX-9 is here to show you just how it stands out. With its luxurious look and undeniable air of sophistication, it offers things that its rivals simply can’t. Some of those rivals include the Honda Pilot, Toyota Highlander, Hyundai Palisade, Kia Telluride, Ford Explorer, and Chevrolet Traverse. But each of those vehicles has a difficult time matching up to the 2020 Mazda CX-9’s high points, as we’ll show you here.

Fuel Economy and Capabilities

If you want to spend less time at the gas station, consider opting for the 2020 Mazda CX-9. With the front-wheel drive (FWD) version’s EPA-estimated 22 mpg city/28 mpg highway, it beats out the two-wheel-drive fuel economy ratings of the Pilot (19 city/27 highway), Palisade (19 city/24 highway), Telluride (20 city/26 highway), Explorer (21 city/24 highway), and Traverse (18 city/27 highway). While the Highlander is rated to be ever so slightly more efficient on the highway at 29 mpg, its around-town mpg is less at 21. It also falls short in torque output, which is 263 pounds-feet next to the 2020 Mazda CX-9’s 310 lb.-ft. (which rises to 320 lb.-ft. with premium fuel). It even outdoes the Pilot (262 lb.-ft.), Palisade (262 lb.-ft.), Telluride (262 lb.-ft.), and Traverse (266 lb.-ft.) in torque output. To top it off, the 2020 Mazda CX-9 is capable of towing up to 3,500 pounds with its base trim, while some of the others’ base models have much lower limits (or require after-market modifications for towing).

Sophisticated Design and Amenities

Sure, looks are subjective, but it’s hard to deny that the 2020 Mazda CX-9 is one of the sharpest-looking vehicles in its class. It’s also beautiful on the inside, where you’ll notice a clean and handsomely crafted cabin with minimal distraction. Some highlights on the list of standard comfort features are tri-zone automatic climate control, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, heated front seats, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter knob. On the exterior, LED headlights and heated side mirrors are provided for top visibility and convenience. Elements like these are typically reserved for higher-level trims (as you’ll notice with the competition), but the 2020 Mazda CX-9 makes each trim comfortable and modern without making the buyer add expensive options packages.
