2015 Land Rover LR2 vs. 2014 Mazda CX-9 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mazda CX-9 than in the Land Rover LR2, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Mazda CX-9 offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Land Rover LR2, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Land Rover LR2 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). The Land Rover LR2 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 Land Rover LR2 is much higher than that for the Mazda CX-9.

Dimensions
The Land Rover LR2 is a little narrower than the Mazda CX-9, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. If you go with the Land Rover LR2, 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 Land Rover LR2 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mazda CX-9.

Handling
The Land Rover LR2 has the same turning radius as the Mazda CX-9, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Mazda CX-9 is clearly the choice over the Land Rover LR2 for pulling heavy loads. The Land Rover LR2 has a little less horsepower than the Mazda CX-9.

Utility
The Land Rover LR2 has less seating than the Mazda CX-9, making the Mazda CX-9 the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Land Rover LR2 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Mazda CX-9.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Land Rover LR2 than that of the Mazda CX-9.
