2016 Mazda CX-9 v. 2016 Toyota Highlander

The crossover SUV has been one of the most popular vehicles on the market for years and this year is no different. Families seeking out a crossover SUV know how difficult this process can be, which is why your friends here at Preston Mazda are willing to help you pick the right choice for you and your family. Two models that rule the crossover SUV market are the 2016 Mazda CX-9 and the 2016 Toyota Highlander. Both of these models have advantages, despite the plethora of similarities like exceptional versatility, but only one of these crossovers can be called the best.

The 2016 Mazda CX-9 and 2016 Toyota Highlander both offer three rows of seating for up to eight passengers that are available across multiple trim levels, but the real difference between the vehicles is when it comes to performance. The engine of the Toyota Highlander is larger than that of the Mazda CX-9, as it sports a 2.7-liter 4-Cyl instead of a 2.5-liter SKYACTIV®-G 4-Cyl. Despite Toyota having the size advantage, when it comes to pure performance, the 2016 Mazda CX-9 seems to hold the advantage.

If we’re talking about total horsepower under the hood, the 2016 Mazda CX-9 has a massive advantage over the 2016 Toyota Highlander. The Mazda CX-9 boasts a whopping 250 horsepower, while the Highlander only grants the driver 185 horsepower. As you can see, the CX-9 blows the Highlander out of the water. When it comes to fuel economy, Mazda takes the cake as well, sporting 22 MPG in the city and 28 MPG on the highway, while the aforementioned Toyota grants the driver 20 MPG in the city and 25 MPG on the highway.
