The Mazda CX-3, Mazda CX-5, or Mazda CX-9 – Which SUV is the Right Fit for You?

October 9th, 2018 by

With so many amazing, new vehicle options to choose from, deciding on the perfect Mazda model for you can be difficult. At Julio Jones Mazda, we can’t say one of our Mazda SUVs is better over another, because they’re all wonderful. But, each one offers its own space and capabilities, and each one appeals to a different type of Tuscaloosa driver.

So, the question becomes, which type of driver are you?

Passenger Space and Seating Capacity

The most important thing to know about these three different models is, of course, their three different sizes. Whether you’re a single professional, have a small family, or a larger family with several children, there’s a Mazda SUV that works for you.

The Mazda CX-3 is a subcompact, small crossover. It seats five people in two rows and has four doors. When it comes to interior space, it’s mostly comparable to the larger, Mazda CX-5, although its backseat legroom is a tad smaller, and its width is a little narrower, making for slightly lower shoulder room measurements.

The Mazda CX-5 is a larger, mid-sized SUV. It also seats five people, but it has about 4.6 inches more legroom for rear seat passengers than the CX-3.

The Mazda CX-9 has three rows of seating and is great for families. It has a seating capacity of seven, with similar headroom and legroom dimensions as the previous model.

Storage and Cargo Room

The Mazda CX-5 actually has the most cargo room, coming in with 30.9 cubic feet of space available. As the smaller model, the CX-3 comes in with 12.4 cubic feet of space, while the CX-9 has the third row of seating in the back, reducing cargo space to 14.4 cubic feet. Of course, storage can be increased in all three models by folding the backseats.

Engine Power and Trim Options

All three models have available all-wheel drive and similar trim level options and, of course, legendary Mazda power. With the heart of a caged wild animal under the hood, driving any one of these SUV models is exciting and fun.
