Finding the perfect mid-sized SUV for all your Rensselaer area adventures is tough. You have plenty of great options like the Honda Pilot with its roomy interior and advances safety features, but if you choose a Honda without considering the power, style, and capability of the 2019 Mazda CX-9, you could be sorry. Read on to see why then drop by Cooley Mazda to take advantage of the Mazda lease deals that will get you a car you’ll love for less.


Both the Mazda and the Honda offer basic features like crash mitigating brakes and electronic stability control, but the CX-9 goes farther, protecting Troy families with features the Honda doesn’t offer:

  • Select CX-9 trims can be equipped with a 360-degree monitor to help drivers visualize objects to the sides and rear of the vehicle. Honda doesn’t offer a 360-degree camera system.
  • For better visibility at night and in poor weather, the CX-9 offers available cornering headlamps – another feature not available on any Pilot.

Interior Comforts

The Mazda is designed to make your Albany commute as hassle-free as possible, thanks to features like:

  • An available heads-up display allows drivers to see relevant information such as speed and distance without taking their eyes off the road. The Honda doesn’t offer a heads-up display.
  • The Mazda CX-9 comes with standard dual-zone air conditioning, that allows the driver and front passenger to set their preferences and eliminates fights over the thermostat. Dual-zone climate control is only available on select Honda trims for an additional charge.

Power and Efficiency

When comparing Mazda vs. Honda, we see the Mazda CX-9 delivers potent efficiency that easily beats the Pilot:

  • The Mazda’s standard SKYACTIV®-G 2.5T 4-cylinder produces 310 lb-ft of peak torque, allowing drivers to accelerate faster and with greater control. The Pilot’s 3.5L V6 engine manages just 262 lb-ft of peak torque.
  • According to EPA testing, the Mazda CX-9 was more efficient, delivering up to 22 mpg/city and 28 mpg/highway while the Honda Pilot managed just 20 mpg/city and 27 mpg/highway.
