Serving Farmington Hills, MI

At Suburban Mazda of Farmington Hills, we proudly maintain a diverse inventory that includes a wide range of impressive vehicles from our current lineup. The CX-5 is a compact crossover SUV that provides passenger seating for five adults. With the debut of its second-generation a few years ago, it has a modern appeal that makes it stand out on the road. Our customers often ask us about the differences between the CX-5 and the CX-9. The CX-9 is a midsize crossover SUV with three rows of seating, and it also has impressive styling throughout its interior and exterior.


The 2020 Mazda CX-5 is available in five trims. The lower three trims are powered by a 4-cylinder, Skyactiv®-G 2.5-liter engine that gives off 187 horsepower. The top trims are equipped with a 2.5-liter turbo, 4-cylinder Skyactiv®-G engine that produces 250 horsepower. An Intelligent all-wheel drive is optional for the lower three trims and is standard for the top trims. In comparison, the 2020 Mazda CX-9 has the same powertrain across all of its trims. This is a 4-cylinder, 2.5-liter Dynamic Turbo Skyactiv®-G engine that generates 250 horsepower. The CX-9 comes with intelligent all-wheel drive and traction control.


The exterior styling of the CX-5 and CX-9 are comparable in some areas. For example, they share their grille shape, and the grille on both SUVs is integrated with the headlights. Also, they both have flowing contours throughout the sides and gentle curvature down the roof. The CX-5, however, has a mesh grille pattern, a horizontal design through the lower front fascia and personality lines that rise up over the front fenders and flow down across the sides. The CX-9 comes with a horizontal bar grille pattern, a rounded front fascia, and muted flow over the front fenders and across the side panels.


Throughout the CX-5 and CX-9, you will discover that the CX-9 has slightly improved features in some areas than the CX-5 has. However, there are also many comparable features. Across the CX-5 and the CX-9, you can appreciate a multi-zone auto climate control system, a touch display screen, HomeLink with an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a push-button starter, a sound system, smart device integration, a sunroof, keyless entry, and numerous other items.
