One of the hardest aspects of buying a new SUV is the number of options that you have. With all the SUVs on the market these days, wading through the options and trying to determine which models are worth your time is a difficult proposition. Here at our Mazda dealership serving Catonsville, MD, our dealers understand you have choices, which is why we’d like to highlight the differences between the 2019 Mazda CX-9 and one of its competitors, the 2019 Toyota Highlander.


The 2019 Mazda CX-9 is an SUV that comes standard with a 2.5-liter SKYACTIV®-G Dynamic Pressure Turbo four-cylinder that cranks out 227 horsepower and 250 lb-ft of torque. In comparison, the base engine on the Toyota Highlander is only good for 185 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. Both SUVs offer all-wheel drive, but the Toyota Highlander only offers it with an engine upgrade, while the turbocharged engine of the Mazda CX-9 can be equipped with i-ACTIV AWD® in every trim level.


In the cabin of the 2019 Mazda CX-9, you’ll find a standard seven-inch color touchscreen display with the MAZDA CONNECT™ infotainment system. The Toyota Highlander has an infotainment screen as well, but it is only 6.1 inches. The Mazda SUV comes standard with three-zone automatic climate control, push-button start, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. The 2019 Toyota Highlander also has these features, but the automaker makes you pay extra for them, as they do not come standard.
