We’re sizing up the competition, pitting the 2020 Mazda CX-9 against the 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe.

Looking at the table above, you may notice a definite difference between the two. To add to it, the 2020 Mazda CX-9 includes additional seating for 7 passengers compared to the Santa Fe’s 5. This means that for those parents wanting some fun while they drive the kids around, the CX-9 drives like a sportier experience with its 227 horsepower at a lower RPM. However, if you fill the tank with 93 octane gasoline, those numbers increase even more to 250 horsepower with 320 ft-lbs. of torque.
