2016 Mazda CX-9 vs. 2016 Dodge Durango Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Mazda CX-9 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Dodge Durango, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Mazda CX-9 and the Dodge Durango.

Convenience
The Dodge Durango requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Mazda CX-9, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Mazda CX-9 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Dodge Durango. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Mazda CX-9 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Dodge Durango.

Dimensions
When looking at overall length, the Mazda CX-9 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Dodge Durango.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Mazda CX-9 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Dodge Durango.

Handling
The Mazda CX-9 has a larger turning radius than the Dodge Durango, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Dodge Durango is clearly the choice over the Mazda CX-9 for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Mazda CX-9 has a lot less horsepower than the Dodge Durango.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Mazda CX-9 and the Dodge Durango. The Mazda CX-9 has less cargo space than the Dodge Durango, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Mazda CX-9 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Dodge Durango.
