The 2024 MAZDA CX-90

Horsepower output estimates range between 280 and 340 hp. With a standard 8-speed transmission, i-Activ AWD® and Kinematic Posture Control ensure you will enjoy smooth handling on even the most challenging Centennial roads.

The Competitor: The 2024 Toyota Highlander

For the 2024 Toyota Highlander, Centennial shoppers can choose between a traditional gasoline or hybrid powertrain. Its gas version features a 265-hp turbocharged 2.4L four-cylinder engine, and the Highlander Hybrid utilizes a 2.5L four-cylinder engine and two electric motors for a combined 243 horsepower. Like the Mazda CX-90, the Highlander comes standard with an 8-speed automatic transmission, but front-wheel drive is standard. All-wheel drive is available, but drivers must pay an additional price tag.
