Mazda CX-9 Sport FWD Vs Honda Pilot EX 2WD

The 2012 Mazda CX-9 Sport FWD vs. the 2012 Honda Pilot EX 2WD

If you’re on the lookout for someplace where you can get a new CX-9 near Tampa, then you’re going to want to head over to Cox Mazda in Bradenton. The 2012 Mazda CX-9, of course, is one of the top crossovers on the market, offering interior versatility and capacity with surprising performance and impressive styling. Of course, there are plenty of other crossover vehicles out there, and it’s only natural to take a look at the competition. So how does this model stack up against its biggest competitors, namely the 2012 Honda Pilot?

A Surprisingly Sporty Crossover

While it’s a good car, the 2012 Honda Pilot takes a back seat to the 2012 Mazda CX-9. There are several reasons why Tampa drivers should choose Mazda’s stylish crossover over its competitor, and here are just a few of them:

  • The first difference you’ll notice is in the price tag: you’ll pay $31,470 for the 2012 Pilot, while the 2012 CX-9 Sport is much more affordable, featuring a base MSRP of $29,725.
  • You’ll get more power from Mazda, too, as it comes equipped with a 3.7L V6 that can produce 273 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque, while the new Honda’s 3.5L V6 only gives you 250 hp and 253 lb-ft of torque.
  • Mazda’s crossover gives you the option of adding front heated seats, a heated exterior mirror, and front manual lumbar support — features that aren’t available on Honda’s SUV. Ditto for a leather steering wheel, which comes standard with the Mazda.

In short, it should be clear that the new CX-9 offers exceptional power and features for a truly impressive price.
