Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mazda CX-9 than in the Genesis GV70, 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 Genesis GV70 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). Whether you pick the Genesis GV70 or the Mazda CX-9, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Genesis GV70 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Mazda CX-9.

Dimensions
Since the Genesis GV70 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 Genesis GV70, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Mazda CX-9.

Handling
The Genesis GV70 has a smaller turning radius than the Mazda CX-9, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Genesis GV70 will do just as well as the Mazda CX-9, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Genesis GV70 has a little more horsepower than the Mazda CX-9.

Powertrain
With similar torque, the Genesis GV70 and the Mazda CX-9 are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Utility
The Genesis GV70 has less seating than the Mazda CX-9, making the Mazda CX-9 the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Genesis GV70 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Mazda CX-9.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Genesis GV70 than that of the Mazda CX-9.
