Mazda CX-9 vs. Toyota Highlander SUV Comparison

The 2019 Mazda CX-9 Offers Plenty of Safety and Tech Features

Most likely, you want an SUV that can get around well in hazardous road conditions, or even where there's no road at all. But you probably also want one that provides comfort and luxury for those long road trips. The 2019 Mazda CX-9 offers the best of both worlds, with the off-road capability you desire, along with a comfortable, flexible interior that lets you relax and focus on enjoying the drive. The Mazda CX-9's exterior shape and style turns heads with its elongated hood and tapered roofline. With its available Smart Brake Support and adaptive front lighting system, the CX-9 is also an IIHS Top Safety pick among vehicles in its class. Many of you may be considering the similarly-sized 2019 Toyota Highlander. The Highlander is slightly lower priced, but the standard and available tech and safety features on the 2019 Mazda CX-9 more than make up for the difference. While both vehicles offer similar cargo room and both offer available all-wheel drive, at Gullo Mazda, we think once you've taken a closer look at both SUVs, you'll agree that the Mazda CX-9 is the better all-around vehicle.
