2016 BMW X1 vs. 2015 Mazda CX-9 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mazda CX-9 than in the BMW X1, due to its greater head- and legroom. The BMW X1 will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mazda CX-9.

Convenience

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). The BMW X1 is somewhat more expensive than the Mazda CX-9.

The Destination Charge for the BMW X1 is much higher than that for the Mazda CX-9.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the BMW X1 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mazda CX-9.

Handling
The BMW X1 has the same turning radius as the Mazda CX-9, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The BMW X1 has a little less horsepower than the Mazda CX-9.

Utility
The BMW X1 has less seating than the Mazda CX-9, making the Mazda CX-9 the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The BMW X1 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Mazda CX-9.
