Comparison Review

Comfort
The Mazda CX-9 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Volkswagen Tiguan, 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 Volkswagen Tiguan.

Convenience

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 Volkswagen Tiguan. 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 will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Dimensions
Since the Mazda CX-9 is much wider than the Volkswagen Tiguan, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. 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 Volkswagen Tiguan.

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 Volkswagen Tiguan.

Handling
The Mazda CX-9 has a larger turning radius than the Volkswagen Tiguan, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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

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 Volkswagen Tiguan. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Mazda CX-9 as you will in the Volkswagen Tiguan.
