2014 Dodge Durango vs. 2014 Mazda CX-9 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
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.

Convenience
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.

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 Dodge Durango 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 Destination Charge for the Dodge Durango is much higher than that for the Mazda CX-9.

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

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

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

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Dodge Durango is clearly the choice over the Mazda CX-9 for pulling heavy loads. The Dodge Durango has a little more horsepower than the Mazda CX-9.

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

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