Mazda CX-9 Interior Cabin

How Much Passenger Space Do You Need?

If the answer to this question is more than five seats, the Mazda CX-9 is the choice for you. This SUV comes with seven seats spread out among three rows.

The extra seating in the Mazda CX-9 provides plenty of room for you, the kids, and their friends. It also gives you the ability to pack up a variety of items since you can fold down the second- and third-row seats to access up to 71.2 cubic feet of cargo volume.

Without a third row, the Mercedes GLC can only fit five passengers. It also doesn’t offer nearly as much room for supplies during your next road trip or space for larger furniture. At most, the 2020 GLC offers 56.5 cubic feet of cargo volume.

Performance Specs

Both SUVs handle rough roads extremely well. You’ll experience effortless turning and smooth riding thanks to their turning radiuses and well-engineered suspension systems.

The Mazda CX-9 and Mercedes GLC also come with powerful 4-cylinder turbo engines. These motors give both SUVs the ability to tow up to 3,500 pounds. The big difference, though, will be felt each time you push down on the gas pedal and need that extra boost.

Producing up to 320 lb-ft of torque, the Skyactiv®-G engine in the 2020 Mazda CX-9 is ready to act when that extra strength is needed. The Mercedes GLC lags slightly behind since its engine only pushes out 273 lb-ft of torque.

A Look at the Features of the 2020 MAZDA CX-9 vs GLC

Moving on from the specs of the Mazda CX-9 vs. Mercedes GLC, we now turn our focus to the features these vehicles offer. Each of these SUVs have plenty of standard amenities that provide a high level of comfort, such as a power driver’s seat and heated front seats.

They also offer sophisticated multimedia systems that give you easy control over all the various entertainment options. Each model also has available displays that project key information right in your line of sight on the windshield.

The available Traffic Sign Recognition System in the 2020 Mazda CX-9 can display road sign information thanks to the available Active Driving Display. Unfortunately, a comparable system isn’t offered in the GLC.

The Mazda CX-9 also comes standard with three-zone automatic climate control with pollen filter. This system lets you, your front passenger, and even rear passengers adjust the temperature within their individual areas. The 2020 GLC comes standard with only a dual-zone automatic climate control system, which means your rear passengers won’t be able to control how hot or cold it is in the back row.
