2017 Mazda CX-9 vs 2017 Ford Flex near Columbia, SC

Vehicle shown above is the 2017 Mazda CX-9 with optional equipment. 

Look no further for your next three-row midsize SUV than the new 2017 Mazda CX-9. Its combination of sleek styling and breathtaking performance leads all other vehicles in its class. To show you how the CX-9 rises above the others, we at Gerald Jones Mazda have created this 2017 Mazda CX-9 vs 2017 Ford Flex near Columbia, SC, comparison. Afterwards, you’ll want to head on over to our dealership to test drive one!

The Mazda CX-9’s performance capabilities strongly outweigh those of the Ford Flex. Complete all of your errands to Richland Mall, Jo-Ann Fabrics and Crafts, and Walmart in the Mazda CX-9 without frequent stops at the gas station, thanks to its fuel-efficient rating of 22/28/24 MPG city/hwy/combined1 and its 19-gallon fuel capacity. You may have to take multiple trips to the pump in the Ford Flex, as it only has an 18.6-gallon fuel capacity and a fuel rating of 16/23/19 MPG city/hwy/combined1. Take your small boat up to Sun View Lake with the CX-9’s 3,500-lb. towing capacity2. Unfortunately, you may not be able to take much behind you in the Ford Flex, as its 2,000-lb. maximum towing capacity3 is significantly less capable.

The next stop in this 2017 Mazda CX-9 vs 2017 Ford Flex near Columbia, SC, comparison, is on the inside of each of these three-row midsize SUVs. You don’t have to upgrade far in the CX-9 to experience the luxury of leather upholstery, as it comes standard on the Touring model. Even after you choose to spend the money on the Ford Flex SEL, you’ll still have to shell out some more cash to get the leather interior you so desire. Even at its base model, you’ll still be connected to all of your technology via the MAZDA CONNECT4 infotainment system on a 7-inch display screen. Ford’s SYNC 3 system is not available at its base trim. Also, you only receive a 4.2-inch display screen on the Flex’s lowest trim.

In addition to its entertainment technology, the CX-9 also includes an array of driver-assist technologies for peace of mind. Features such as Smart Brake Support5, the Advanced Blind Spot Monitoring System6 and Rear Cross Traffic Alert all come standard on the CX-9 Grand Touring model and help boost your confidence as you drive. The Ford Flex simply lacks in this category, as none of these features come standard on its Limited model.

Schedule a test drive at Gerald Jones Mazda as soon as today, so you can experience the 2017 Mazda CX-9 for yourself. As the winner of the 2017 Mazda CX-9 vs 2017 Ford Flex near Columbia, SC, comparison, there is no doubt as to which three-row midsize SUV reigns supreme.

I have Been to a few dealerships after buying vehicles but never have I been mor pleased. Drop off took minutes if that and pick up was just as easy. The thing that stands out the most is the eagerness to go the extra mile for us in our situation. I'd give them 50 stars if Possible.

Was extremely happy with Keith, the sales person that helped us. I never felt pressured and he listened to what I had to say and took it into consideration in helping us find a car. Even though it was a rather lengthy process it was worth it and everyone we came in contact with was nice and courteous and kept us informed of what was going on while we were waiting. I am glad we went to this dealership and I am glad Keith is the one that greeted us and helped us get a car.

These people are great! Most dealerships, the sales team HAVE to be nice to you obviously because they are trying to sale you a car. But even after I purchased a car from them, they are super nice and just very awesome people to deal with. The salesman who I dealt with, Denny, went above and beyond to help out. His manager was great as well! Awesome service team as well. Again, all just great people. Highly recommend this place if you are out looking for a brand new car.

Great Dealership

The salesperson with whom I worked, Kieth, was courteous, knowledgeable of his product, supported by superior sales management in Pat, worked hard to get us into the car we wanted at the perfect price point. Post-sale support, including installation of hardware by service days later was superior. Cannot rate them high enough.

This was the first service, so it was free... free is always welcome. Service was done quickly, they accommodated my request to leave the car overnight, and the service covered a lot of items besides just oil and filter. Oh, and the invoice estimated what my next service would entail and cost. Great job!

Eric was very friendly, helpful and patient. I had done a lot of research on GJ website and other dealers, as well as an internet search on the vehicle. He was able to answer all of my questions. I had test driven a car in October but was not ready to make a purchase at that time. He stayed in touch via email. I do not like really "pushy" sales and appreciate his more reserved sales approach.

Awesome!

Dwight was awesome! Everyone in the garage at the computers were so kind. Deborah spent time with me, and didn't rush me.
