2014 Mazda CX-9 vs. 2014 Volkswagen Touareg

By Ken Jackson

The time has come to shop for a new family vehicle. You don’t see yourself in a van and the old family car just won’t cut it anymore. A crossover is more your style. You have a family and they’re busy with school, sports, friends and obligations. You want them to be safe. You want it to be affordable. You want room in the cargo area to haul all the backpacks, sports equipment, shopping bags, gym bags, and whatever else your family needs to get from here to there. And you want it to be and feel sporty. You’ve narrowed your search to either the 2014 Mazda CX-9 or the VW Touareg. Now it’s time for some comparison shopping.

Both are fine picks for the active family and they share many similar and appealing basic features. According to excerpts from an exhaustive list of standard features from mazdausa.com and cars.com, both have: automatic climate/temperature control, tilt and telescopic steering wheel, rear window defogger, steering-wheel mounted audio controls, trip computer, cruise control, front and side-impact air bags, anti-lock brake system (ABS) and keyless remote panic button.

The list goes on, but you expect these amenities and more from a new vehicle. It’s the differences that count, right? Here are some to think about:

Although the Touareg excels in off-road and towing ability, it has more, in fact, than most shoppers are likely to need. Only you know your priorities, but why pay more for something you don’t need.
