2013 Mazda CX-9 vs. 2013 Toyota Highlander

Comparing the performance of the 2013 Mazda CX-9 vs. 2013 Toyota Highlander is straight forward by the numbers, but numbers don’t tell you how a car drives. By the numbers the CX-9 just pulls ahead of the Highlander in the power department, offering 3 additional horses and a more respectable 22lb-ft of torque. Add in the additional eighteen pounds the CX-9 has over the Highlander in curb weight and you should have to very comparable family movers. You should have, but the Mazda CX-9 on the road simply outshines the Highlander. What’s more, in all-wheel drive CX-9’s you’ll find a surprisingly off-road-capable vehicle more than able to get you off the beaten path to that secret family camping stop.

In the 2013 Mazda CX-9 you’ll find corners are a breeze and its confident handling more closely resembles that of a sedan then that of a large seven passenger family mover. The CX-9 offers a firm, yet not uncomfortable, suspension that makes driving more enjoyable than with Highlanders cushy suspension. There are similar results in the steering department as the Highlander’s steering is light and offers little feedback, while the CX-9’s steering is crisp, responsive and gives you a real feel for the road. If you’re making the final decision based on driving excitement then the decision’s been made, you’re looking for a 2013 Mazda CX-9 in Miami.
