Serving Shrewsbury, NJ

The Hyundai Palisade is a new addition to the midsize crossover SUV class. Like the popular Mazda CX-9, it offers three rows of seats and is easy on the eyes. Because they are priced comparably, you naturally may wonder how the Palisade ranks against the Mazda CX-9 in relevant areas. After you get the full details, you can confidently pick out your next SUV.


The Mazda CX-9 balances smooth, rolling surfaces with proud linear elements to achieve an aesthetically pleasing balance. The chrome-accented grille has horizontal bars stacked from top to bottom. The chrome outline trends outward and fades into the LED light ribbon. The horizontal theme continues with black body molding supporting the entire façade. Simultaneously, the Mazda CX-9 reflects the light perfectly with the subtle contouring spans across the rolling hood, roof, and side panels. The Palisade, on the other hand, has a boxy profile with definition over the fenders. Chrome, lower-body accents, and slanted LED headlights also define the Palisade's exterior.


The 2020 Mazda CX-9's interior is equally appealing with a combination of fine materials like leather, wood, and chrome. The first and second rows have center consoles with concealed storage spaces, cupholders, and heated seats. The front console also includes a rotary selector knob, a wireless charging pad, and a leather-wrapped gear shifter. The Palisade's interior has a slow-rising center console that edges up toward the center stack. The central display screen is linked to the driver's instrumentation screen. These vehicles have smart device integration, mounted functions on the steering wheel, a sound system, Bluetooth wireless connectivity, and other items.


A review of safety equipment is essential before you make your finalize a selection. Almost all of the Mazda CX-9's safety features are standard for all four trim levels. Some of the safety features of the Mazda CX-9 are radar cruise control, smart city brake support, lane keep assist, child door locks, pedestrian detection, hill launch assist, roll stability control, and other items. In the Hyundai Palisade, there is more variation in the list of standard and optional features across the trim line. Some of this SUV's equipment includes child safety seat anchors, airbags, a window lock-out button, trailer sway control, lane keep assist, lane follow assist, and more.
