Which SUV is right for you: Mazda CX-9 or Equinox?

Though these two SUVs are comparable in many ways and only have a little more than a foot of length difference between them, the 2021 Mazda CX-9 offers much more room. In fact, though the Equinox only supports up to 5 people no matter how you configure it, the 2021 Mazda CX-9 provides room for up to 7 people standard. Higher trims and options can reduce that capacity down to 6, however, in that instance, the second row is upgraded to captains’ chairs providing easier access to the third row and greater comfort to your second-row passengers.

Speaking of comfort, the 2021 Mazda CX-9 gives you standard automatic climate control with three zones. The driver, front row passenger, and your additional passengers can each set their temperature independently and the system will automatically modulate heat and air conditioning to provide the perfect temperature to everyone that you ride with.
