SAN ANTONIO, May 31, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- As the crossover segment gains more and more competition, it becomes more difficult to determine which vehicle reigns supreme. At Ingram Park Mazda the 2013 Mazda CX-9 vs 2013 Toyota Highlander is setting out to determine which vehicle earns the top spot for its overall performance and versatility. In the battle of strength and utility, the new Mazda in San Antonio TX comes in first for its performance prowess.
The 2013 Toyota Highlander is a solid competitor against the 2013 Mazda CX-9. With better efficiency, the Highlander appeals to the driver's desire to save on fuel consumption. Its styling is exquisite and its intuitive performance is hard to beat. However, the CX-9 tops the charts in all of the areas a driver wants in a crossover SUV. With more cargo volume, a significantly stronger towing capacity, and more impressive power overall, the CX-9 performs harder so the driver doesn't have to.
Capable of competing with luxury 7-passenger crossover SUVs, the 2013 Mazda CX-9 boasts a beautiful appearance throughout the vehicle. Aerodynamic lines glide across the vehicle's exterior to combat wind resistance and improve fuel efficiency. Following the automaker's KODO "soul of motion" design aesthetic, the CX-9 takes every movement it makes very seriously while giving the driver the fun-to-drive Mazda experience he or she deserves.
Utilizing the 3.7L 24-valve DOHC V6 engine, the 2013 Mazda CX-9 can produce an impressive 273 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque, which can be used to tow up to 3,500 pounds when equipped with the Towing Prep Package. With that much strength, there isn't a single traveling challenge the CX-9 can't handle, and with an EPA-estimated fuel economy of up to 24 mpg on the highway, drivers can stress a little bit less about stops to the gas station.
Overall, the 2013 Mazda CX-9 proves its strength in many ways. Contact Ingram Park Mazda today to test drive the new Mazda in San Antonio TX.
