2024 MAzda CX-90

2024 MAZDA CX-90 vs. 2024 Kia Telluride 

If you are looking for a supremely spacious SUV that can take your daily drives in Denver to new heights, you have likely come across the 2024 Mazda CX-90 and the 2024 Kia Telluride. Sure, both models certainly have their merits, but only one can take that coveted spot in your Aurora garage. So, which will it be? We compare both models head-to-head below, so you can see why drivers prefer the Mazda CX-90.

The 2024 MAZDA CX-90

Don’t let the size of the Mazda CX-90 fool you. It is remarkably efficient for an SUV of its stature. Even with all-wheel drive, the Mazda CX-90 earns an EPA-estimated 24 mpg city / 28 mpg highway / 25 mpg combined at the base level. You can spend more time on the open roads of Centennial and less time fueling up at the nearest gas station.

When it comes to performance, the Mazda CX-90 once again does not disappoint. The base model is outfitted with a 280-hp, e-SKYACTIV®-G 3.3L Turbo Inline 6. The base model can also tow up to 3,500 pounds when properly equipped. You do have the opportunity to upgrade to the 340-hp, e-SKYACTIV®-G 3.3L Turbo Inline 6 for a boost in power and towing capability. This powertrain option makes it possible to haul up to 5,000 pounds. 

The Mazda CX-90 does not disappoint in terms of technology either. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity come standard, and you can connect wirelessly in higher trim levels. You can drive with complete peace of mind thanks to features like:

  • MAZDA Radar Cruise Control with Stop and Go
  • Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Traffic Alert
  • Dynamic Stability Control
  • Rear View Monitor
  • Lane Departure Warning System
  • And So Much More!

The Competitor: 2024 Kia Telluride 

While the Kia Telluride also offers plenty of space for passengers and cargo, it is not quite as efficient as its competitor from Mazda. The base Telluride with front-wheel drive earns an EPA-estimated 20 mpg city / 26 mpg highway / 22 mpg combined. With all-wheel drive, those figures drop to 18 mpg city / 24 mpg highway / 20 mpg combined. 

What about performance? While the base Telluride does have a more powerful engine that delivers 291 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque, there is only one engine available across the lineup. To enjoy all-wheel drive with the Telluride, you will have to opt for a costly upgrade. Like the Mazda CX-90, the Telluride can also tow up to 5,000 pounds when properly equipped. 

When taking a look at tech features, the Telluride gives you access to Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, too. A Rear-View Monitor comes standard, as well, so you have a better view of your surroundings when your vehicle is in reverse. Other perks include Bluetooth® and Electronic Stability Control.
