2015 Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class vs. 2014 Mazda CX-9 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mazda CX-9 than in the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class and the Mazda CX-9.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with 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 Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class 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 Destination Charge for the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class is much higher than that for the Mazda CX-9.

Dimensions
Since the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class is much slimmer than the Mazda CX-9, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Mazda CX-9.

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

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

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class will do just as well as the Mazda CX-9, since they have about the same towing capacity. When it comes to horsepower, the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class has a lot less horsepower than the Mazda CX-9.

Utility
The Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class has less seating than the Mazda CX-9, making the Mazda CX-9 the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class has significantly less cargo capacity than the Mazda CX-9.
