Mazda CX-9 vs. Hyundai Santa Fe - near Campbell River and Nanaimo


Mazda CX-9 vs. Hyundai Santa Fe

Out of all the vehicle segments in the auto industry, the midsize crossover SUV is the fastest growing and most popular.  They give drivers the versatility and capability they are searching for in their next new vehicle as well as the passenger and cargo space they desire.  They have also recently been able to deliver performance and fuel economy that is comparable to sedans which is one reason why they have gained so much attention from consumers.  This SUV comparison between the Mazda CX-9 vs.  Hyundai Santa Fe offers the information you need to make the best decision.

Searching for a new mid-size crossover SUV can be challenging and time consuming.  This side-by-side comparison should help you find all the necessary details much faster.  While both the Mazda CX-9 and Hyundai Santa Fe have similar characteristics, one of them does have more to offer.

When shopping for a new SUV in this particular segment, seating capacity and cargo space are two of the top attributes that shoppers look for.  Both the Mazda CX-9 and Hyundai Santa Fe offer seating for up to seven passengers but the Mazda CX-9’s 100.7 cubic-feet of cargo space is much larger than the Hyundai Santa Fe’s 80 cubic-feet.  So if size does matter to you, the Mazda CX-9 is the ideal choice.

As we researched the differences between these two popular SUVs power and performance ratings we noticed one thing that really stood out, the Mazda CX-9 offers 17 less horsepower than the Hyundai Santa Fe.  But, when both vehicles transfer that power to the wheels, the Mazda’s higher torque rating gives it the advantage in performance.  Stronger performance and a larger cargo area are just a few things that help make the new Mazda CX-9 a better choice for a new SUV.
