2019 Mazda CX-9 vs 2019 Subaru Ascent

Want to learn which three-row SUV is right for you and your family? Then let our 2019 Mazda CX-9 vs 2019 Subaru Ascent comparison help you out. The first thing we want to look at in this comparison is style. Normally, we may not bring style up, even though it is usually a clear win for Mazda. However, the Ascent just looks boring, dull, and outdated. It’s the same style that Subaru has inexplicably gotten away with for years and it’s just tired. The Mazda CX-9 doesn’t suffer from that problem. Mazda is a brand that’s always looking for reinvention, and the Mazda CX-9 has been winning people over with its good looks since its debut.

Which SUV is better: 2019 Mazda CX-9 or 2019 Subaru Ascent?

For many three-row SUV buyers, fuel economy is going to be a concern, but with the Mazda CX-9, you have nothing to worry about. Not only does it have a very capable 2.5-liter turbocharged engine that can deliver 250 horsepower and an astounding 310 pound-feet of torque, but it can get you where you need to go while burning less fuel.

That impressive torque is what allows the 2019 Mazda CX-9 to have a standard towing figure 1,500 pounds higher than that of the 2019 Subaru Ascent. More towing capability is never a bad thing especially if you have a lot of toys to haul around.

Mazda is also looking out for your safety, and that becomes obvious when you look at some of the standard features. Blind-spot monitoring makes your life so much easier by adding an extra level of awareness, and LED headlights illuminate the road in front of you as if it were daytime. Both of these are wonderful features to have, and you will find them on every 2019 Mazda CX-9 model.
