The 2013 Mazda CX-9 vs 2013 Toyota Highlander
Mazda performance power, interior spaciousness, and unmatched crossover versatility make the 2013 Mazda CX-9 the clear winner in the battle between the 2013 Mazda CX-9 vs 2013 Toyota Highlander. Trailing behind the Highlander by only one hwy mpg, the CX-9 earns an EPA-estimated 24 hwy mpg with its 3.7L DOHC engine.

Available leather-trimmed seats add a fresh level of sophistication to the athletic crossover, and the available Mazda Advanced Keyless Entry and Start System make for a grand entrance into the impressive CX-9. Ample cargo space is available when either the 60/40 split second-row seat or the 50/50 split third-row seat is folded down, and the available multi-way adjustable driver seat with memory settings gives the driver the celebrity treatment.
