2018 Dodge Durango vs. 2018 Mazda CX-9 Review

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

Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Dodge Durango, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Mazda CX-9.
