The 2018 Mazda CX-9 Has More to Offer Fairfax Car Shoppers Than the SUV Competition

Arlington drivers searching for an SUV that makes school drop-offs simple while still delivering engine power to cut loose on your commute will find that the 2018 Mazda CX-9 checks all of the boxes, and a few more for good measure. An expansive cabin with three rows of seats holds cutting-edge technology and comfort features while sensors that help to warn drivers are built into the stylish exterior, and under it all is an engine built to excite.

We know that there are other SUV models that also have a lot to offer, but we think that the Mazda CX-9 excels in more areas, and we've drawn up a few ways in which it compares with three competitors, the Toyota Highlander, Honda Pilot, and Ford Explorer, to prove its worth to Tysons Corner car shoppers.


The 2018 Mazda CX-9 vs. The 2018 Toyota Highlander

  • Manassas car shoppers will find that the Mazda CX-9 has a starting price slightly above the Toyota Highlander's, but it comes standard with safety features like Advanced Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Traffic Alert that cost extra in most trims of the Toyota Highlander.
  • The Mazda CX-9 also comes standard with features like HD Radio, tri-zone climate control, and a 7-inch touchscreen display, none of which come standard in the Toyota Highlander.
  • Woodbridge thrill seekers will find excitement with every Mazda CX-9. It's engine comes with more horsepower and torque than the Toyota Highlander's standard engine, and the Mazda CX-9 still manages to get better fuel economy on the highway and in the city.
  • The Mazda CX-9 is exceptionally designed and features a larger cargo area than the Toyota Highlander, so Falls Church drivers can bring luggage or groceries along without losing seating capacity.

The 2018 Mazda CX-9 vs. The 2018 Ford Explorer

  • The Mazda CX-9 has a lower starting price than the Ford Explorer, and comes with lots of standard features, like LED headlights and tri-zone climate control, that cost extra in the Explorer.
  • The Mazda CX-9 uses sound-deadening technology throughout to make sure that the cabin is serene on your Arlington commute. The Ford Explorer does not use similar technology.
  • The 2018 Mazda CX-9 comes standard with features like Smart City Brake Support, and it's available with others like Adaptive Front Lighting that helped to make it a 2018 Top Safety Pick of the IIHS, an award the Ford Explorer did not receive.
  • The turbocharged 2.5-liter engine found in every Mazda CX-9 houses more torque than the Ford Explorer's standard V6, and is much more efficient, an EPA-estimated 24 mpg combined compared to 20 mpg combined in the Ford Explorer.


The 2018 Mazda CX-9 vs. The 2018 Honda Pilot

  • With its second trim level, starting price of $34,960, the Mazda CX-9 treats Vienna, VA car shoppers to standard safety features like lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, and blind spot monitoring. If you want these features standard in the Honda Pilot, you'll have to splurge for the second highest trim, starting price of $41,970, a full $7,000 difference.
  • Have tall friends? The Mazda CX-9 has more leg room for the first two rows than the Honda Pilot does, which they're sure to enjoy.
  • Driving around Washington DC can be expensive, but the Mazda CX-9 gets better fuel economy in the city than the Honda Pilot, which is one way to reduce costs.
