2016 Mazda CX-9 vs 2016 Honda Pilot
If you're in the market for a new midsize SUV, then you have quite a few great options available to you. But things are changing in the segment with the introduction of the all-new 2016 Mazda CX-9. The model is now more upscale and sophisticated as ever, while still managing to offer affordable pricing. So, let's match up the CX-9 with another top model in this comparison of the 2016 Mazda CX-9 vs 2016 Honda Pilot.
The CX-9 comes with a new turbocharged engine for the 2016 model year, capable of delivering a whopping 310 lb-ft of torque, which is considerably more than the Pilot. The best thing about all this power is that it is available at a low 2,000 rpms, making it ideal for real-world driving situations rather than just being a high torque figure used for marketing purposes. Plus, despite all the power, the CX-9 is a class leader in city and combined mpg.
