2019 Acura MDX vs. 2019 Mazda CX-9


Between the Acura MDX vs. Mazda CX-9, the Acura MDX is the more powerful vehicle by far. The MDX has a standard 3.5L V6 that roars with 290 hp, which is 40 hp more than the Mazda CX-9’s 250-hp 2.5L turbo 4-cylinder. Car and Driver also tested the two models and found that the MDX was the clear winner, reaching 95 mph in just a quarter mile – compared to just 88 mph with the CX-9.

Motor Trend also tested the braking power of both vehicles when stopping from 60 mph. The CX-9 managed to stop in 130 feet, but the MDX took just 121 feet to do the same. Whether have the need for speed in Naperville or simply want an ultra-responsive ride for Elmhurst, the Acura MDX specs won’t let you down.


The Acura MDX was built to maximize fuel efficiency, so it has several advantages over the Mazda CX-9. To start, the MDX is offered as a Sport Hybrid – which generates up to 26 mpg on the city! The CX-9 AWD only manages 20 mpg in the city by comparison. Plus, the MDX offers the following options that aren’t available on the CX-9 at all:

  • Automatic Engine Start/Stop System
  • Cap-Less Fueling System
  • Sequential Manual Gearbox
  • 9-Speed Automatic Transmission
  • Regenerative Braking
  • And more!

Cargo Capacity

The Acura MDX specs really hold their own when it comes to cargo room, which is a feat that the Mazda CX-9 can’t claim. The MDX has 15.8 cubic feet of room behind the third seat, while the CX-9 only has 14.4 cubic feet to spare. When the seats are folded, the MDX offers a whopping 90.9 cubic feet of room to explore and the CX-9 only has 71.2 cubic feet. The MDX can even tow up to 5,000 pounds – which is 1,500 pounds more than the CX-9!
