2024 MAZDA CX-90 vs 2024 Kia Telluride

Serving Cleveland, OH

The 2024 model year sees the introduction of the Mazda CX-90 as a replacement for the outgoing Mazda CX-9. This midsize crossover SUV offers three rows of seats, exceptional style, and many excellent features. It could be compared to the 2024 Kia Telluride, identical to its 2023 predecessor. After getting to know the Mazda CX-90 and the Telluride in greater detail, which model will stand out as your top pick?


The 2024 Mazda CX-90 is available with three powertrains across its five trims. The options begin with a 280-horsepower, 3.3-liter turbo, V6 engine. An upgraded version of this engine is also available and produces 340 horsepower. A four-cylinder, plug-in hybrid engine is offered as well. It generates 323 combined horsepower and travels 26 miles on all-electric power. All Mazda CX-90 crossovers have all-wheel drive. In comparison, all 2024 Kia Telluride trims are outfitted with a 291-horsepower, V6, 3.8-liter engine. Most trims have a front-wheel drivetrain with the option for all-wheel drive. The Telluride does not offer a plug-in hybrid option.


The sophisticated, sleek body language that Mazda is recognized for is displayed across the 2024 Mazda CX-90. This model is also defined by metallic trim on a side air vent, the lower door panels, and the bumpers—the chrome bar supporting the grille trends upward into the elegant LED headlights. The style also includes tall, deep air intakes and triangle-spoke wheels. The 2024 Telluride, on the other hand, shows off the same boxy look that it had last year. Its bow-tie grille, LED headlights, and thick, metal-outlined grille have rectangular influences.


The Mazda CX-90 is marvelously appointed with desired features and technologies across all trims. Features in all or some of the trims are quilted leather seats, heated first and second-row seats, a surround-view camera, a 12.3-inch infotainment system screen, a Bose audio system, a navigation system, a hands-free liftgate, second-row captain’s chairs, and numerous others. The Kia Telluride has several desired features, including a household power outlet, a heated steering wheel, smart device integration, adaptive cruise control, a sunroof, and a few additional features.

As a new model, the 2024 Mazda CX-90 is an exciting possibility for your next SUV purchase. To learn more about the Mazda CX-90 and to make plans for your test drive, contact our Classic Mazda Westside sales team today.
