2016 Lincoln MKX vs. 2016 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.

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. Both the Lincoln MKX and the Mazda CX-9 have similar Destination Charges.

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

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

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Mazda CX-9 is clearly the choice over the Lincoln MKX for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Lincoln MKX greatly out-muscles 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. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Lincoln MKX as you will in 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.
