2019 Mazda CX-9 vs. 2019 Acura MDX
The 2019 Mazda CX-9 and the 2019 Acura MDX are both high-end three-row SUVs that offer smart features, comfort, and impressive performance. However, the Mazda CX-9 delivers a considerable amount more bang for your buck, outclassing the Acura and standing head and shoulders above it.
Every mile matters, and the Mazda CX-9 gives you more of them between fill-ups. With front-wheel drive, the 2019 Mazda CX-9 returns 22 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway. In contrast, the FWD Acura MDX returns just 20 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway.* If you opt for predictive i-ACTIV® all-wheel drive, you’ll get 20 mpg in the city, which is better than the 19 mpg you get with the Acura MDX with AWD.*
Mazda CX-9 Signature Trim
Perhaps the greatest advantage the 2019 Mazda CX-9 offers is a substantially lower starting price. Even with all its advantages, the base CX-9 will set you back around $12,000 less than the base MDX, meaning you’ll have much more room in your budget to upgrade to an even more refined ride. In fact, for only slightly more than the base price of the Acura MDX, you can upgrade to the range-topping 2019 Mazda CX-9 Signature — the most refined trim in the Mazda lineup.
With the CX-9 Signature, you’ll get soft and sumptuous auburn Nappa leather enhanced with genuine Santos Rosewood inlays and sculpted aluminum accents, all rendered by Mazda’s expert craftspeople to deliver a more ergonomic, refined feeling. You’ll also benefit from the 250-horsepower SKYACTIV®-G 2.5T engine, i-ACTIV AWD®, 12-speaker Bose® Centerpoint® 2 Surround Sound with AudioPilot® 2, and all the safety offered by i-ACTIVSENSE®. And you get all of this for just a small sum more than you’ll pay for the barest minimum Acura MDX.
