2017 Dodge Durango vs. 2016 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
The Dodge Durango 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). Whether you pick the Dodge Durango or the Mazda CX-9, it's going to cost you about the same. 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
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 a smaller turning radius than the Mazda CX-9, allowing you to more easily maneuver 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 a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Mazda CX-9.

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