How Does the Competition Hold Up?
-

Drivers have a lot of attractive options when choosing three-row SUVs. From weekend adventurers to expectant parents, these vehicles have a degree of space, power, and comfort that's perfect for a wide variety of passengers. If you've been paying attention, you'll notice that two models, in particular, have been making waves: the 2021 Kia Sorento and the 2021 Mazda CX-9. Let's compare the two SUVs in the areas where it matters so you can see which one is best for you!

Performance

-

2021 Mazda CX-9

The CX-9 comes with a 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that delivers up to 250 horsepower with 320 lb-ft. worth of torque. This is attached to a six-speed automatic transmission and comes standard with all-wheel drive options. 

-

2021 Kia Sorento

Sorento drivers can choose between two options, with the default one being a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that offers 191 horsepower with 311 lb-ft. worth of torque. All-wheel driving comes standard.

Interior

-

2021 Mazda CX-9

Unsurprisingly, the CX-9 is a clear winner in cargo volume, boasting 14.4 cubic feet worth of passenger space that expands to 71.2 cubic feet when you account for the seating area. There's an impressive 38.2 cubic feet worth of space behind the second row alone. 

-

2021 Kia Sorento 

The Kia Sorento offers a comparatively modest 12.6 cubic feet of cargo space for day-to-day errands. Drivers who need more room than that can lay out the second-row seats to expand it to a slightly more workable 45 cubic feet. 

-

Price

-

2021 Mazda CX-9

When you consider all of the amazing features that the 2021 Mazda CX-9 has to offer, it's hard to believe that it's available starting at $34,160. Drivers who want additional features--such as the highly coveted Kuro edition--can spring for optional upper trims. 

-

2021 Kia Sorento

The 2021 Kia Sorento is available starting at $29,390 but expects to pay more if you want any of the advertised features. For example, the vehicle's upper-end engine doesn't start until the SX trim, leaving drivers stuck at 190 horsepower until they spring for a $37,990 model. 

-

When you compare the two directly, it's hard not to see a clear winner. The 2021 Mazda CX-9 delivers on everything that drivers have come to love about 3-row SUVs while offering plenty of signature Mazda flourishes.
