For those looking for size, the Mazda CX-9 offers the largest model in the Mazda lineup. Packed for both 7-8 passengers as well as the latest technology you need, the vehicle is best known for maintaining its performance.
While both are classified as three-row midsize SUVs, the 2021 Mazda CX-9 builds upon its predecessor with even more technology and trim options. For a comparison on both models, Tuttle-Click Mazda provides a guide below:

While the 2021 model has a slightly higher base price, it now offers a new standard 10.25-inch Display. Powered with the MAZDA CONNECT™ Infotainment system, the new size is larger than both screen options in the 2020 model. Plus, models have standard Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ capabilities. As a bonus, the 2021 option will also offer an additional Carbon Edition trim, which features unique exterior trim and grille face, 20-inch Alloy Wheels, and available Red Leather seating.

If you’re looking for additional capabilities, every trim level has access to the i-ACTIV® AWD with Off-Road Traction Assist. Meanwhile, front-wheel drive models will offer up to an estimated 25 MPG.
