2018 Kia Sorento vs 2018 Mazda CX-9

2018 Kia Sorento Exterior Driver Side Front Profile vs 2018 Mazda CX-9 Exterior Passenger Side Front Profile

The table starts of hot in the Kia Sorento’s favor as we turned first to horsepower. A vehicle’s power rating is important regardless of segment, as it indirectly correlates to just how enjoyable the driving experience can be, while also telling you how well it’ll carry all the weight of your passengers and cargo. Offering an extra 63 horsepower is a pretty big deal, especially when couple with the second row, which shows the Sorento weight 260 pounds less the CX-9.

However, space is arguably the most important thing to consider when looking at utility vehicles. Both of these crossovers offer seating enough to fit 7 passengers, but unfortunately the Mazda CX-9 offers 3.1 extra cubic feet of space for things like luggage or groceries. If you can overlook the setback in space, then give us a call and schedule that test drive we mentioned. We look forward to getting you behind the wheel!
