2018 Mazda CX-9 vs. 2019 Acura RDX


If you’re ever curious how a supposedly luxury nameplate compares against any other model, you might find yourself comparing the Mazda CX-9 vs. Acura RDX. You’ll quickly find that the Mazda actually pulls ahead.


At first glance, the new Mazda CX-9 and new Acura RDX seem similarly equipped when it comes to power:

  • Mazda CX-9: Makes up to 250 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque from a 2.5L four-cylinder.
  • Acura RDX: Makes up to 272 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque from a 2.0L four-cylinder.

That said, you’ll find the Mazda’s ride more engaging and less fatiguing thanks to SKYACTIV®-VEHICLE DYNAMICS with G-Vectoring Control. This revolutionary system adjusts weight and power distribution automatically as you corner, giving you an edge on the streets of Plainfield and Aurora.



The splendid Mazda CX-9 interior delivers versatility and comfort that’s unmatched by even the 2019 Acura RDX. Standout features across all Mazda CX-9 trim levels include:

  • Tri-Zone Automatic Climate Control: The driver, front passenger, and rear passengers get their own climate zones and controls.
  • Seven Passenger Seating: Make space for the whole family and then some.



The latest Mazda CX-9 and Acura RDX have both earned strong safety scores, but those prioritizing safety tend to set their hearts on the Mazda. It’s the only SUV of the two that can offer:

  • Rain Sensing Wipers: These turn on automatically when rain is detected to keep the way ahead visible with no extra effort on your part.
  • Traffic Sign Recognition: Your Mazda CX-9 can read road signs and put them on your display to keep you alert and informed at all times.
