2016 Mazda CX-9 vs 2017 Dodge Durango

SUVs are becoming more and more popular, which means there are more and more options for you to choose from. Midsize SUVs like the Mazda CX-9 are great at providing you with a spacious interior and versatile utility, and if done right a little bit of extra sophistication to go along with all of that. Well the CX-9 certainly delivers, but in order to know if it's the right model for you, we're comparing the 2016 Mazda CX-9 vs the 2017 Dodge Durango.

To start with, the 2016 CX-9 is the choice for drivers who want that ideal blend of power and efficiency from their engine. When engineering the engine for the 2016 Mazda CX-9, Mazda focused on getting drivers the power they need in real-world situations rather than just boosting horsepower and torque numbers for marketing purposes. That's why the CX-9 delivers significantly more torque than the Durango, and that torque is available at low RPMs when drivers will be using it most.

We also can't forget that the CX-9 is extremely spacious, offering up to 135 cu ft of passenger room. Though you can see by the chart that the Durango comes close, in order to get that extra bit of passenger room buyers will need to move up trim levels.
