2014 Lincoln MKX vs. 2014 Mazda CX-9 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Lincoln MKX 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 Lincoln MKX and the Mazda CX-9.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Lincoln MKX 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 Lincoln MKX 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 Lincoln MKX will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Mazda CX-9.

Dimensions
The Lincoln MKX is about the same width as the Mazda CX-9. If you go with the Lincoln MKX, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Mazda CX-9.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Lincoln MKX transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Mazda CX-9.

Handling
The Lincoln MKX has a larger turning radius than the Mazda CX-9, making it slightly 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 Lincoln MKX for pulling heavy loads. The Lincoln MKX has a little more horsepower than the Mazda CX-9.

Utility
The Lincoln MKX has less seating than the Mazda CX-9, making the Mazda CX-9 the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Lincoln MKX 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 Lincoln MKX than that of the Mazda CX-9.
