Here at O’Brien Mazda of Fort Myers, we understand that finding the right car can be difficult. With so many vehicles to choose from, narrowing down your list is easier said than done.

If you’re having a hard time finding an SUV with three rows of seating, visit our dealership. We recently compared the Mazda CX-9 to the Kia Sorento to see which SUV is most impressive.  

Performance Specs

The 2021 Mazda CX-9 can generate up to 320 lb.-ft. of torque, while the 2021 Kia Sorento can only produce 252 lb.-ft. of torque. 

Acceleration is far greater in the 2021 Mazda CX-9, allowing you to speed up faster on freeways and at stoplights. Higher torque also helps the 2021 Mazda CX-9 tow heavier loads than the Kia Sorento.  

Design Details  

Built with passengers in mind, the 2021 Mazda CX-9 features second-row captain’s chairs that allow passengers to experience a higher level of luxury. Its interior also comes with an available 10.25-inch center display that relays information clearly. This type of detail makes this SUV a perfect choice for shoppers with big families.  

On the other hand, some of the Kia Sorento’s major pitfalls lie in its inferior cabin. It only comes with a high-end center console for the driver only, leaving passengers wanting more. 

The 2021 Mazda CX-9 is the perfect third-row SUV for big families, and many experts agree with that statement. We have a full inventory of 2021 Mazda CX-9 models here at O’Brien Mazda of Fort Myers. We invite you to test drive this SUV and experience its superior amenities for yourself. We hope to see you at our dealership very soon!
