2020 Mazda CX-9 vs 2020 Honda Pilot

Serving Shrewsbury, NJ

The 2020 Mazda CX-9 is a three-row SUV that offers an upscale cabin, outstanding driving dynamics, excellent fuel economy ratings, a quiet and comfortable ride, and plenty of advanced technology. While the 2020 Honda Pilot is a capable three-row SUV that comes nicely equipped and features a practical cabin, it lacks many of the features and comforts of the Mazda CX-9.


All 2020 Mazda CX-9 models come with a reliable and efficient 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers 227 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque to a smooth-shifting six-speed automatic transmission that spins the front wheels. You also have the option of upgrading to all-wheel-drive (AWD). Accelerating in and out of traffic is a breeze with the CX-9. It can go from 0-60 mph in an impressive 7.3 seconds, which is suitable for its class. It can come to a full stop from this speed within 115 feet. The steering feels natural and provides for precise turns. The CX-9 handles well with minimal body roll during aggressive turns. The 2020 Honda Pilot also features a strong engine and standard six-speed automatic transmission, but it falls behind in overall performance to the CX-9.

Fuel Economy

The 2020 Mazda CX-9 was designed with efficiency in mind and had an EPA rating of 22 mpg city/28 highway. The 2020 Honda Pilot has an EPA rating of 19 mpg city/26 highway.


The 2020 Mazda CX-9 comes well-equipped with a Mazda Connect™ 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, forward automatic low-speed braking, 18-inch alloy wheels, rear cross-traffic alert, LED headlights, blind-spot monitoring, triple-zone automatic climate control, a six-speaker audio system, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, Bluetooth, and split-folding second-and third-row seats. The 2020 Honda Pilot comes standard with a decent amount of equipment, but it falls short of the CX-9's feature lineup.
