2018 Chevrolet Traverse vs. 2018 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). The Chevrolet Traverse is somewhat more expensive 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. The Chevrolet Traverse will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Mazda CX-9.

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
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Traverse and the Mazda CX-9.

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