2017 Hyundai Santa Fe vs. 2016 Mazda CX-9 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Santa Fe than in the Mazda CX-9. The Hyundai Santa Fe offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mazda CX-9, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
The Mazda CX-9 requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Hyundai Santa Fe, 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 Hyundai Santa Fe 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 Hyundai Santa Fe and the Mazda CX-9 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Hyundai Santa Fe is slightly shorter than the Mazda CX-9, which may make it easier to park.

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

Handling
The Hyundai Santa Fe 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 Hyundai Santa Fe is clearly the choice over the Mazda CX-9 for pulling heavy loads. The Hyundai Santa Fe has a little more horsepower than the Mazda CX-9.

Utility
The Hyundai Santa Fe has less seating than the Mazda CX-9, making the Mazda CX-9 the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Hyundai Santa Fe has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Mazda CX-9.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Hyundai Santa Fe than that of the Mazda CX-9.
