If you’re searching for the perfect SUV that has a luxurious design, comes equipped with the latest technologies, provides an exhilarating drive consistently and has more than enough space for all occasions; then look no further as the 2019 Mazda CX-9 is THE vehicle for you. The addition of features such as G-Vectoring control , Pedestrian Detection, Traffic Sign Recognition system as well as improvements to the various trim levels has strengthened the Mazda CX-9’s position in its segment.

Here’s a comparison to one of its closest competitors, the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas.

All-round Superior Performance

cx-9 engine The All-Wheel Drive version of the Volkswagen Atlas comes equipped with a 3.6L VR6 engine. It produces 276hp and 266 lb-ft of torque and is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. The Mazda CX-9 on the other hand comes equipped with the SKYACTIV-G 2.5L Turbocharged engine which produces 250hp (with Premium fuel and 227hp with regular fuel) and 310 lb-ft of torque. The Mazda CX-9 comes with a 6-speed SKYACTIV-Drive automatic transmission. Despite producing 26hp more than the CX-9 and having an 8-speed automatic the Atlas is notably slower off the line than the CX-9 and uses more fuel. The superiority in performance of the CX-9 is undoubtedly a result of the CX-9 being almost 400lbs lighter and having an engine that produces significantly more torque at lower rpm’s

Extraordinary agility

Every Mazda, regardless of the size of the vehicle, has been designed to respond faithfully to the input of the driver. The CX-9, despite being an SUV, with three rows of seating and all-wheel drive is true to the Jinba-Ittai philosophy as well.
In comparison, the Atlas was developed for the North American market and while the ride comfort is competitive the handling is merely adequate.
Inside the cabin of the Mazda CX-9 you can feel the amount of effort that went into ensuring a quiet cabin and this is evident in the materials used all around the vehicle.

Everyday Functionality

On paper the Volkswagen Atlas has significantly more cargo room than the CX-9, though majority of that room is above the beltline. Once you put the two vehicles side by side it becomes apparent that the practical differences aren’t nearly as huge as the numbers would suggest. The Mazda CX-9 is capable of sitting up to 7 people comfortably.



Exquisite Craftsmanship

The exterior design of the CX-9 has been sculpted to reflect craftmanshipthe KODO: Soul of Motion Design language. The same level of care is evident in the interior of the CX-9. The interior is made with soft touch materials unlike the hard plastic materials found throughout the interior of the Atlas. The Atlas lacks the upscale appearance of the CX-9 as The CX-9 makes use of Rosewood accents on the dash compared to the faux wood used in the Atlas. The CX-9 takes it further by integrating Nappa Leather seats which add an elegant touch to the vehicle and set it apart from all its competitors

Proactive Safety

IIHS The Mazda CX-9 features a fleet of passive and active safety features that utilize cameras and sensors to give you a better understanding of your surroundings.
The Mazda CX-9 is a 2018 Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Industry for Highway Safety ratings (IIHS) while the Atlas did not meet the requirements for the 2018 top safety pick. This is just one more way in which the CX-9 delivers a blend of attributes than the Atlas.
