2016 Mazda CX-9 vs. 2017 Dodge Journey Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mazda CX-9 than in the Dodge Journey. The Dodge Journey offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mazda CX-9, 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 Mazda CX-9 as you will with the Dodge Journey, 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 Mazda CX-9 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Dodge Journey, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Mazda CX-9 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Dodge Journey.

Dimensions
For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Mazda CX-9, which is slightly longer than the Dodge Journey.

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

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

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Mazda CX-9 is clearly the choice over the Dodge Journey for pulling heavy loads. The Mazda CX-9 has a little less horsepower than the Dodge Journey.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Mazda CX-9 and the Dodge Journey. The Mazda CX-9 has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Dodge Journey.

Warranty
The Mazda CX-9 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Dodge Journey.
