Which three-row SUV is better: Mazda CX-9 or Telluride?

Comfort is the name of the game when it comes to the 2021 Mazda CX-9. This SUV brings the heat and the cold for that matter with standard automatic climate control. It’s not just single-zone or even dual-zone, but three-zone auto climate control with the driver, front row passenger, and the rear passengers all being able to set their temperature independently. The Telluride doesn’t provide any kind of automatic climate control standard, much less a three-zone system.

On higher trims of the 2021 Mazda CX-9 you can also get ventilated front seats and a heated rear row. You can also get a heated steering wheel too for even greater comfort.
