MAZDA CX-9 vs. Honda Pilot: Power & Fuel Economy 

When it comes to a big SUV, even a large crossover like the Honda Pilot or Mazda CX-9, power is key in making sure you can get around Dartmouth with ease. But power can mean fuel consumption. You’ll find virtually the same fuel economy no matter which SUV you choose, but the Mazda CX-9 offers more get-up-and-go with its higher torque. What’s more, the Mazda CX-9 has the zip of turbo power. Here are the engines that power each SUV:

  • Mazda CX-9 engine: 2.5L turbo inline-4 engine paired with a 6-speed automatic SKYACTIV®-Drive transmission
  • Honda Pilot engine: 3.5L V6 engine and a 9-speed automatic transmission. 

While most of the numbers are similar in this Honda vs. Mazda comparison, the difference comes down to features, which you’ll find in the Mazda when it comes to towing. The Mazda CX-9 arrives equipped to tow up to 3,500 pounds. The Honda Pilot requires you to purchase a towing kit before you can hitch up your boat for a day on the bay. 

Honda Pilot or MAZDA CX-9: Standard Interior Features 

The interiors of both the Mazda CX-9 vs. Honda Pilot also have a lot of similarities, such as Bluetooth® connectivity, bucket front seats, a rearview camera, and forward collision warning, to keep you and your passengers safe and protected on Fall River roads. However, just as the Mazda CX-9 comes equipped with all the towing equipment you need, it also includes more standard interior features that will enhance every trip you take. Some of those features include: 

  • Tri-zone climate control
  • Blind-spot monitor
  • Rear cross-traffic alert
