When looking for your next vehicle, you may have come across both the 2020 Mazda CX-5 and Mazda CX-9. Both models are produced with driver experience, safety, and comfort in mind, and each provide a unique experience for drivers and families.
Found in the small crossover class, the 2020 Mazda CX-5 provides one of the more complete driving experiences in its class. Meanwhile, the three-row SUV model in the CX-9 provides you with additional space. But are there more differences between each vehicle? We at Bob Baker Mazda investigate further in case you were torn between which model to invest in.
When looking under the hood, both models possess the same available 2.5L 4 Cylinder Turbocharged engine at their max. Generating up to 227 horsepower and 310 ft-lbs of torque with regular unleaded, the engine can be pushed even further with premium unleaded fuel. The engine comes standard to all CX-9 models, but the CX-5 offers a well-equipped 2.5L engine as standard, which received 187 horsepower and 186 ft-lbs of torque. While the CX-5 is at a lower MSRP, it is due to the size difference. The CX-9 is a larger vehicle, and holds room for more fuel, cargo, and passengers inside its frame. Meanwhile, the CX-5 received the more improved 28 Combined estimated MPG.
When looking at available features in both the 2020 Mazda CX-5 and CX-9, some features are included at different levels. Despite each model receiving all the above features, the CX-5 receives Remote Keyless Ignition standard while the CX-9 offers Heated Seats at its initial trim level. Meanwhile, both models have been equipped with the same i-Activsense® suite of safety features as standard, which includes i-ACTIV AWD®, Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, and City Brake Support with Stop & Go Function, among others.
