2021 Mazda CX-9 Sport Takes on the 2021 Honda Pilot LX in BC, Canada

Too often do base models of crossover SUVs come with skimpy infotainment, safety, and comfort features. Consumers have to dig deep into their pockets to afford basic technology, like climate control and blind spot monitoring; and they sometimes spend a small fortune on a higher trim level or pricey package. 

Happily, this is not the case for the base 'Sport' trim of the 2021 Mazda CX-9. As for the starting 'LX' level offered by its competitor the 2021 Honda Pilot, well...

Drivers who opt for the 2021 Mazda CX-9 Sport are treated to a 6-way power adjustable captain's chair with lumbar support, plus a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. Everyone inside this vehicle will enjoy the customisable three-way automatic climate control.

The 2021 CX-9 Sport keeps passengers connected and entertained with an expansive 26cm touchscreen in the centre stack, as part of the Mazda Connect infotainment system. This crossover SUV further boasts two 12-volt power outlets, conveniently located in the front and cargo area.

As for the Honda Pilot LX, consumers will have to make do with a meagre 12.7cm display (half the size of the Mazda’s) and a single 115-volt outlet.

When cruising down the freeway in the base 2021 Mazda CX-9 Sport, Blind Spot Monitoring and Lane Keep Assist systems observe surrounding traffic, alerting the driver to potential hazards. Brake Support with Collision Warning is also standard and will take control of the car in extreme situations.

None of these driver assist features make it to the base Pilot LX and will require a jump to the EX trim level.

The added benefits of the standard  rain sensing windshield wipers and LED tail lights on the 2021 MAZDA CX-9 Sport will be much appreciated by British Columbia drivers, well acquainted with ever changing weather. Exterior side-mirrors with integrated LED turn signal indicators are another welcome convenience included in the base model.

The Pilot LX, comparatively, fails to deliver to same ease - with its rain-sensing windshield wipers requiring three upgrades to the Touring 8P. Sight-lines remain compromised on the base trim.
