Our Mazda dealers serving Aberdeen, MD at Heritage Mazda Bel Air understand the appeal of the SUV and are proud to show off the 2019 Mazda CX-9. That said, this sleek Mazda vehicle isn’t the only SUV on the market, and one of its main competitors is the 2019 Dodge Journey.


The SUV is a popular vehicle choice, and the 2019 Dodge Journey hopes to capitalize on that popularity, but it fails to do so when pinned against the Mazda CX-9. Offering three rows of seating, the Dodge Journey brings plenty to the table in terms of sizing. The base model only sports a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, which puts out just 173 horsepower. While you can opt for a larger six-cylinder engine, you’ll also have to pay a bit more to take advantage of the extra power. The 2019 Mazda CX-9, on the other hand, starts strong right out the gate. Its base powertrain renders 227 horsepower.

Fuel economy is another downside for the Dodge Journey, as due to its size, the SUV only gets 19 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway, which are certainly less-than-favorable numbers. The Mazda CX-9 earns a remarkable 22 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway.


The 2019 Mazda CX-9 and Dodge Journey boast three rows of seating. While the 67.6 cubic feet worth of cargo space in the 2019 Journey may seem like a decent payoff, it's not enough to give it SUV superiority. The Mazda CX-9 boasts an ample 71.2 cubic feet of cargo space with its rear seats folded flat,
