Mazda CX-5 and CX-9 Cargo Space
Though SUVs remain a popular option for new vehicle buyers, compact SUVs have carved out a spot as one of the most popular model types. Though there are many similarities between Mazda’s CX-9 SUV and the CX-5 compact SUV, such as a wealth of interior amenities, there are certainly some differences. With the CX-9 being the bigger brother of the CX-5, we thought it may be interesting to compare the Mazda CX-5 and CX-9 cargo space figures.
The most recent versions of these models are the 2016 Mazda CX-5 and 2015 Mazda CX-9. As one may expect when comparing a full-size SUV to a compact, there is a difference in cargo space, though both models provide impressive figures for their class.
The 2016 Mazda CX-5 cargo space varies based on whether you have the rear seatback up or folded. With it folded down, the CX-5 Sport can stow up to 64.8 cubic feet of supplies. With the rear seatback up, an impressive 34.1 cubic feet of cargo space is still available. This make the CX-5 a highly fuel efficient cargo carrier for any road trip or vacation.
The 2015 Mazda CX-9 cargo space varies even more, making it highly versatile. Should you require all of the CX-9’s available seating space, you will manage 17.2 cubic feet of cargo space. Simply place the third row of seats down, and you can boost that capacity to 48.3. The maximum cargo volume with the CX-9, however, is an impressive 100.7 cubic feet of space for all the materials and belongings you need for any trip.
Both models put up some great figures for cargo space, and it gets even better when examining passenger space. The CX-9 SUV can provide a roomy 139.4 cubic feet of interior living space. The CX-5, though a compact SUV, manages to come in not far behind with up to 103.8 cubic feet of comfortable space.
No matter which model you choose, you really can’t go wrong when comparing the Mazda CX-5 and CX-9 cargo space.
