Key Differences – 2020 CX-9 vs 2020 Santa Fe

The 2020 Mazda CX-9 is a perfect match for large families. With seating for seven and a standard 14.4-cubic foot cargo area, the CX-9 delivers versatile space that is essential for daily commutes. The competing 2020 Santa Fe limits seating to just five passengers across its two rows of seating. When drivers need extra cargo space and less seating in the CX-9 they can fold down the third row of seats, expanding the cargo area to 38.2 cubic feet. When room for cargo is all that’s needed both rear rows of seats can fold down, expanding the cargo area to a spacious 71.2 cubic feet. 

When we said the CX-9 was perfect for families we meant it. This Mazda SUV delivers standard safety tech in every model, blowing away the standard safety systems found in the competition. Below we have laid out some of the standard and available safety technology that can be found in the 2020 Mazda CX-9 lineup.
