2021 Toyota Highlander vs 2021 Mazda CX-9 - Finding a Fun yet Dependable Mid-Size SUV

2021 Toyota Highlander vs 2021 Mazda CX-9 - Finding a Fun yet Dependable Mid-Size SUV

The mid-size, three-row SUV is the 2021 equivalent of the family station wagon and a great alternative for families that want size and space without buying a minivan or a giant SUV. Two of the highest-rated options available right now are the 2021 Toyota Highlander and the 2021 Mazda CX-9.

 

Both Toyota and Mazda are rated highly in reliability and safety and offer similar levels of comfort and convenience. In the end, the Toyota remains the choice for drivers that want more options, space, safety, and quality from a manufacturer that has never let them down.

 

2021 Toyota Highlander

 

2021 Toyota Highlander

 

The 2021 Toyota Highlander was built for space but designed

for luxury. Its attractive exterior, even more, prominent on the new sporty XSE trim, pairs with a modern cabin environment filled with high-quality materials.

 

Starting at $40,450, the Highlander is available in 10 model options to meet the needs of all buyers, including the availability of two engine options: the standard 295-horsepower 3.5-litre V6 and a 243-hp 2.5-litre four-cylinder hybrid. Even the base model of the Highlander features an 8-inch touchscreen and smartphone connectivity, smart key with push-button start, heated front seats, Toyota Safety Sense 2.5+, and blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert.

 

2021 Mazda CX-9

The 2021 Mazda CX-9 is a mid-size crossover SUV that offers seating for seven passengers, high-quality finishes, and a sporty driving experience. Starting at $39,900, the 2021 Mazda CX-9 is offered in six trim levels: GS, GS-L, GT, Kuro, Signature, and 100th Anniversary.

 

The CX-9 is powered by a 250-horsepower Skyactiv-G 2.5-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine with standard all-wheel drive. Every model comes standard with smartphone connectivity, i-Activsense safety features, heated front seats, and three-zone automatic climate control.

 

Features

 

 

The 2021 Mazda CX-9 has a lot to like, but it does not come close to that paragon of mid-size SUVs: the Toyota Highlander. The new Highlander offers more engine options, more performance, more driver-assist technology, and better passenger space in the third row. For drivers that want it all, and then some, the 2021 Toyota Highlander is the best choice.
