Differences between the 2016 Mazda CX-9 and Honda Pilot

The Mazda CX-9 and Honda Pilot have a few differences that will likely sway you either one way or the other. The 2016 CX-9 offers better fuel efficiency with its turbocharged 2.5L I-4 engine with a 22 City/28 Highway MPG rating -- which bests the Pilot in both city and highway driving. The Honda Pilot does have a larger engine, though, which gives it an advantage if you’re specifically looking into an SUV as a towing machine. Still, for most the Mazda CX-9’s 3,500 lbs of trailering weight is more than enough.

When you look at features at the base level -- or even as you go up -- the 2016 Mazda CX-9 pulls ahead. Its base level trim comes with premium features such as the three-zone automatic climate control, a Mazda Connect infotainment system with a 7-inch touch screen, and a rearview camera. When exploring the Touring, Grand Touring or even the super-premium Signature trim level you will start to find even more luxury features -- such as Nappa leather seating and genuine roosewood interior trim.
