Luxury comes in many forms. Many drivers think it needs to have a hefty price tag and come from a notorious luxury automaker. Perception can be far from reality, though. Mazda is quietly becoming a contender in the automotive industry, offering luxury-like vehicles that compare favorably against other big names like Mercedes-Benz and Lexus – at a fraction of the price. The esteemed and adored midsize SUV from Mazda, the CX-9, has been holding the naysayers at bay with outstanding performance features and interior amenities. While 2019 proved to be a solid year, now for the 2020 model year, it’s looking even better. Take a look at this comparison between the 2020 Mazda CX-9 vs 2019 Mazda CX-9 and see which is a better fit for you!

If you know anything about Mazda, you know that settling isn’t a part of their repertoire. The CX-9, whether the 2019 model or the 2020 model, is made with families in mind. The interior is spacious enough to house up to seven passengers comfortably, but there’s also enough room to where you’ll have up to 71.2 cubic feet of cargo space with the 2nd and 3rd row seats folded flat. As far as performance, the CX-9 gets a boost for 2020. Despite offering the same efficient engine, the CX-9 now has a stellar 320 lb-ft of torque, allowing for quicker acceleration and a sportier drive.
Luxury is further enhanced by an interior that puts the interiors of rival luxury SUVs to shame. It starts with the Signature trim, which is the top level of luxury for the CX-9. Available for both the 2019 and 2020 models, the Signature trim has perks like genuine rosewood trim and Nappa leather upholstery for a truly executive feeling. The long list of interior amenities is highlighted by features such as a 12-speaker Bose® audio system, central display screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Active Driving Display, Mazda Advanced Keyless Entry System, and so much more.
