2018 Mazda CX-9 vs 2018 Nissan Pathfinder

You’re in luck, because we have a viable option for people like you who want more cargo space without shelling out more cash. The Mazda CX-9, the largest SUV in the Mazda lineup, is a midsize SUV built to make traveling easy and road trips fun. It can also haul what you need in the back without a hassle, all without the bulky nature of a full-size SUV. So how does it compare to another popular midsize SUV? Find out here as we look at the 2018 Mazda CX-9 vs 2018 Nissan Pathfinder!

Specs and Features in the 2018 CX-9

The Pathfinder is a quality SUV and has received praise from critics. Unfortunately, it doesn’t quite stack up to the abilities had by the CX-9. If you’re familiar with Mazda, you probably already know about the luxury features found in all models that compare favorably against higher-priced luxury models. Rosewood trim and Nappa leather seating come standard on the Signature trim, but you don’t need to go beyond the base model to get some pretty impressive standard features. Some of the standard features in all trim levels of the CX-9 include:

  • Three-zone automatic climate control 
  • Push Button Start 
  • MAZDA CONNECT™ Infotainment System 
  • Touchscreen display 
  • Rearview camera 
  • Smart City Brake Support
  • And much more!

The Pathfinder is a viable competitor, but it just doesn’t quite match up to the features found in Mazda’s midsize SUV. Interested in learning more? We’ve got your back.
