2014 Mazda CX-9 vs. 2014 Toyota Venza Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Mazda CX-9 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Toyota Venza, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Mazda CX-9 and the Toyota Venza.

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 Toyota Venza, 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 is somewhat more expensive than the Toyota Venza. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Mazda CX-9 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Toyota Venza.

Dimensions
The Mazda CX-9 is a little wider than the Toyota Venza, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the Mazda CX-9, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Toyota Venza.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Mazda CX-9 does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Toyota Venza.

Handling
The Mazda CX-9 has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Toyota Venza, allowing you to much more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Mazda CX-9 is clearly the choice over the Toyota Venza for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Mazda CX-9 greatly out-muscles the Toyota Venza.

Utility
The Mazda CX-9 offers greater seating capacity than the Toyota Venza, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With the Mazda CX-9, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Toyota Venza.

Warranty
The Mazda CX-9 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota Venza.
