2021 MAZDA CX-9 vs. 2021 Honda Pilot


Shopping for a capable 3-row crossover with the in-cabin tech to keep up with your busy days in Sarasota? In the guide below, we’ll compare the Honda Pilot and Mazda CX-9 to see whether the Honda Pilot or Mazda CX-9 SUV delivers more advanced safety features, interior comfort amenities, and performance capability for the price.

MAZDA CX-9 vs. Honda Pilot: Performance

Choosing between the Honda Pilot or Mazda CX-9 may come down to your driving needs in Tampa. The Pilot’s higher horsepower will deliver a speed boost on the highways, but extra torque from the CX-9 Skyactiv®-G engine makes it easier to drive up steep inclines and transport heavy loads. When you add MPG to the mix, the CX-9’s higher ratings give it an edge overall. Compare Honda Pilot and Mazda CX-9 performance specs to see for yourself:
