2018 Chevrolet Traverse vs. 2017 Mazda CX-9 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Traverse offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Mazda CX-9, with comparable head- and legroom. The Chevrolet Traverse 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
The Chevrolet Traverse 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 Chevrolet Traverse will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Mazda CX-9. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Chevrolet Traverse and the Mazda CX-9 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Traverse is a little wider than the Mazda CX-9, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Chevrolet Traverse, which is slightly longer than the Mazda CX-9.

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

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Chevrolet Traverse is clearly the choice over the Mazda CX-9 for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Traverse greatly out-muscles the Mazda CX-9.

Utility
The Chevrolet Traverse offers greater seating capacity than the Mazda CX-9, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Traverse comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mazda CX-9.
