2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited vs. 2014 Mazda CX-9 Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited than the Mazda CX-9. The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 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
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited as you will with the Mazda CX-9, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 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. The Destination Charge for the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is much higher than that for the Mazda CX-9.

Dimensions
Since the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is much slimmer than the Mazda CX-9, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Mazda CX-9.

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

Handling
The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited has a significantly larger turning radius than the Mazda CX-9, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Mazda CX-9 is clearly the choice over the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited for pulling heavy loads. The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited has a little more horsepower than the Mazda CX-9.

Utility
The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited has less seating than the Mazda CX-9, making the Mazda CX-9 the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited has significantly less cargo capacity than the Mazda CX-9.

Warranty
The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mazda CX-9.
