2019 Mazda CX-9 Scranton, PA

The most prominent feature for this comparison is the engine of the 2019 Mazda CX-9. It is not equipped with a V6 engine, but this is often to its benefit. Although the 2019 Honda Pilot has the superior horsepower, it loses in terms of torque and has the same standard towing capacity. Additionally, the weightier engine lessens its fuel economy compared to the 2019 Mazda CX-9 for that moderate increase in horsepower. Furthermore, as we teased above, the 2019 Mazda CX-9 includes many new and upgraded features, inside and out, including:

  • AudioPilot®2
  • Rain-Sensing Windshield Wipers
  • i-ACTIV AWD®
  • Rear Privacy Glass
  • Santos Rosewood Interior Trimming
  • Nappa Leather Upholstery
  • Heated Seat Rows
  • Mazda Advanced Keyless Entry System
  • Mazda Radar Cruise Control
  • And More!
