Interior & Features

  • While the Highlander seats 8 and the CX-9 seats 7, the Toyota model offers less cargo space than the Mazda SUV.
  • Front heated seats are optional with the CX-9, but not available on the Highlander, which doesn't seem very luxurious.
  • Our Jacksonville Beach customers will appreciate how the Mazda CX-9 uses Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to integrate your smartphone into your driving experience. The Highlander? It doesn't have these features available.


  • If you are interested in driving an all-wheel-drive SUV, the Mazda CX-9 is going to cost you less for this feature than the Toyota Highlander.
  • The Highlander fails to tow as much as the CX-9 can when properly equipped, which is important for Saint Augustine drivers who want to bring that special boat or small camper along for fun.
  • With the front-wheel-drive models, the CX-9 offers a more powerful engine, giving you up to 227 horsepower, while the Highlander offers just 185 horsepower.
  • Fuel economy is also more generous in the CX-9 than it is in the Highlander, which means more adventures outside of Ponte Vedra Beach.

Our St. Johns and Lakeside customers can experience the new 2018 Mazda CX-9 by visiting our dealership and taking a test drive. We look forward to seeing you here to discuss your Mazda lease or loan terms.
