2021 Hyundai Palisade vs. 2021 Mazda CX-9

One of the great things you will love in the 2021 Hyundai Palisade is its perfectly-designed cabin. There are comfortable seats inside as well. Many car buyers also look forward to its reliable set of technology and safety features.

In the case of the 2021 Mazda CX-9, expect that the infotainment system has been updated. It also launches the Carbon Edition trim. It promises a powerful engine and opulent cabin, as well.

Design & Style

The 2021 Hyundai Palisade has an outstanding cargo space which starts at a basic configuration of 18 cubic feet. This expands to 45.8 cubic feet with the third rows folded down, and even enlarges further to hold 86.4 cubic feet of cargo when the last two rows are not in use. There is a total of eight seats for passengers, which can be configured to seven in case you use the captain’s chairs for the second row. The entire cabin seats are nicely-cushioned, with plenty of legroom and headroom to move about. It has well-appointed materials inside, thus making it feel and look like a luxury ride.

When it comes to the CX-9, expect lesser cargo room for your belongings. It has only 14.4 cubic feet of capacity when all seats are in use. This becomes 38.2 cubic feet with the third-row seats folded down, and 71.2 when the second and third rows are not in use. It can seat up to seven people (or six with captain’s chairs on the second row). It comes standard with cloth upholstery and other nice materials in the cabin.

Technology & Safety

The 2021 Hyundai Palisade uses an eight-inch touch screen for its infotainment functions like the Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, HD radio, five USB ports, and Bluetooth. It is also gifted with remote keyless entry. All these features are user-friendly. Safety wise, it has amenities like driver drowsiness monitoring, lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, rearview camera, rear parking sensors, and rear-seat alert.

For the Mazda CX-9, it has a 10.3-inch touch screen paired with its Mazda Connect infotainment interface. This has physical controls which can be used for other functions like Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, six speakers, two USB ports, Wi-Fi hot spot, and Bluetooth. Safety features include rearview camera, pedestrian detection, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, forward automatic emergency braking, and forward collision warning.


The 2021 Palisade has a base V6, 3.8-liter engine which manages to provide power for 291 horses. In the case of the CX-9, it has a turbo-four, 2.5-liter engine that can reach results of up to 227 horsepower. This makes the ride less powerful than its Hyundai counterpart.

The Bottom Line

The 2021 Hyundai Palisade is truly remarkable in terms of design and style. It also has a set of technologies that you will love. When it comes to engine performance, you will be impressed by how it topples down the CX-9.
