Mazda has been building large SUVs with the Mazda CX-9 since 2006, but now Subaru is coming to the party with the Ascent. They are late, and they are lacking in features, options, style, and luxury.

The 2019 Mazda CX-9 provides great performance out of the gate with its standard 2.5-liter turbo engine. Not only does this powerplant pump out up to 250 horsepower but it also bests the Subaru in torque at 310 pound-feet.
In addition to all that power though, the Mazda CX-9 also provides impressive efficiency standard. In all-wheel drive, the Mazda CX-9 only takes a small hit to its efficiency numbers as it still provides 20-city mpg and 26-highway mpg with the same engine.
Not only can the Mazda CX-9 tow more than the Subaru Ascent with its standard performance, but it also comes with a huge number of standard features that you can take advantage of even on the base Sport trim.
Standard on the Mazda CX-9 you get a three-zone automatic climate control system, remote keyless entry with push-button start, LED headlights, a dual exhaust system, and a 7-inch infotainment screen with standard Bluetooth and voice control.
The Mazda CX-9 is ready to give your family the safety that it deserves. Not only do you have available convenient safety features like radar cruise control, high-beam control, a heads-up display, and automatic adaptive front lighting, but you also get features designed to keep you out of an accident.
The Mazda CX-9 is available with smart collision avoidance technology that includes smart city brake support and collision warning, lane keep assist and lane departure warning, rear cross traffic alert, and a 360-degree view monitor.
