It can be difficult to decide between trims, especially when all of them seem like great choices. Choosing between the Sport, Touring, Grand Touring, and Signature trims of the 2018 Mazda CX-9 can be rather difficult. If you’ve already decided upon this SUV, you can look at the differences between the trims to decide what you really want, and what you are willing to leave out in order to get the best price you can for the technologies and features that come with it.

Take a look below to see some of the differences between the four trims of the 2018 Mazda CX-9.

Advantages of the 2018 Mazda CX-9 Touring

As you can see in the table above, there are some pretty good technology features either standard or available for the 2018 Mazda CX-9. From driver-assist technologies to convenience features, the Mazda CX-9 has plenty of options.

If you were looking for the lowest price, but more features than the base trim, you’d probably want to go with the Mazda CX-9 Touring. This particular trim costs significantly less than the Grand Touring or the Signature, but still has many of the standard features that the other two do. Though, if you are interested in having navigational aid technology, then you’ll either need to add that on to the Touring, or just upgrade to the Grand Touring, which has that particular feature standard.

Another significant difference is that the highest trim, or the Signature trim, does not have FWD. so, if you are not interested in AWD, then you’ll want one of the other three lower trims.

We hoped this has helped you to narrow down what trim of the 2018 Mazda CX-9 is the right fit for you. If you have any questions or want to take it for a test drive please don’t hesitate to contact us here at Vic Bailey Mazda.
