San Antonio Mazda dealer compares strengths of seven-passenger, eight-passenger SUVs

Ingram Park Mazda stacks up its 2014 Mazda CX-9 against 2014 Chevy Traverse

SAN ANTONIO, June 30, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Many drivers may think that comparing a seven-passenger vehicle to an eight-passenger is like comparing apples to oranges, but San Antonio Mazda dealer, Ingram Park Mazda, wants to show how strong its crossover is even when stacked up against an eight-passenger adversary.

Both the 2014 Mazda CX-9 and 2014 Chevy Traverse are strong competitors in their class. The CX-9 offers room for up to seven passengers, while the Traverse expands its interior to suit up to eight passengers. While the Chevy SUV puts out larger performance numbers in several categories, Ingram Park Mazda notes how close the CX-9 is in performance capabilities even as the smaller SUV option.

The 2014 Chevy Traverse offers up to 150.8 cubic feet of passenger volume and 116.3 cubic feet of cargo space when the rear seats are folded down. The vehicle also generates a 281-horsepower performance while offering an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-estimated 24 mpg highway fuel rating. Its spacious interior and versatile performance is a favorite among active individuals and growing families.

The 2014 Mazda CX-9 may be the smaller vehicle of the two, but its performance offerings allow the vehicle to compete even against an eight-passenger vehicle. Inside the cabin, the CX-9 offers 139.4 cubic feet of passenger volume and 100.7 cubic feet of cargo space. Its numbers aren't too far off from its Chevy competitor, but the vehicle's performance is especially close. Offering a 273-horsepower performance with an EPA-estimated 24 mpg highway fuel economy, the CX-9 offers the exact same fuel rating and a very similar power output. While its space may be slightly smaller, there is no denying the Mazda SUV is prepared to keep up with its larger class competitors.

Drivers can experience the 2014 Mazda CX-9's performance strengths at Ingram Park Mazda. They can simply schedule a test drive online or contact the dealership for more information.
