For enhanced safety, the front and middle seat shoulder belts of the Chrysler Voyager are height-adjustable to accommodate a wide variety of driver and passenger heights. A better fit can prevent injuries and the increased comfort also encourages passengers to buckle up. The Mazda CX-9 doesn’t offer height-adjustable middle seat belts.

Over 200 people are killed each year when backed over by motor vehicles. The Voyager offers optional Rear Park Assist with Stop that uses rear sensors to monitor and automatically apply the brakes to prevent a rear collision. The CX-9 doesn’t offer backup collision prevention brakes.

Compared to metal, the Voyager’s plastic fuel tank can withstand harder, more intrusive impacts without leaking; this decreases the possibility of fire. The Mazda CX-9 has a metal gas tank.

Both the Voyager and the CX-9 have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, front wheel drive, height adjustable front shoulder belts, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, daytime running lights, rearview cameras, available blind spot warning systems, rear parking sensors and rear cross-path warning.

There are over 4 times as many Chrysler dealers as there are Mazda dealers, which makes it much easier should you ever need service under the Voyager’s warranty.

To reliably power the ignition and other systems and to recharge the battery, the Voyager has a standard 180-amp alternator. The CX-9’s 110-amp alternator isn’t as powerful.

J.D. Power and Associates’ 2019 survey of the owners of three-year-old vehicles provides the long-term dependability statistics that show that Chrysler vehicles are more reliable than Mazda vehicles. J.D. Power ranks Chrysler 16th in reliability. With 13 more problems per 100 vehicles, Mazda is ranked 21st.

In heavy traffic or at stoplights the Voyager’s engine automatically turns off when the vehicle is stopped, saving fuel and reducing pollution. The engine is automatically restarted when the driver gets ready to move again. (Start/Stop isn’t accounted in present EPA fuel mileage tests.) The CX-9 doesn’t offer an automatic engine start/stop system.

To lower fuel costs and make buying fuel easier, the Chrysler Voyager uses regular unleaded gasoline. The CX-9 requires premium for maximum efficiency, which can cost 20 to 55 cents more per gallon.

In its Green Vehicle Guide, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) rates the Chrysler Voyager higher (7 out of 10) than the Mazda CX-9 (3). This means the Voyager produces up to 24.5 pounds less smog-producing pollutants than the CX-9 every 15,000 miles.

For a smoother ride and more stable handling, the Voyager’s wheelbase is 6.3 inches longer than on the CX-9 (121.6 inches vs. 115.3 inches).

For better handling and stability, the track (width between the wheels) on the Voyager is 3 inches wider in the front and 3.1 inches wider in the rear than on the CX-9.

The Voyager has 30 cubic feet more passenger volume than the CX-9 (165.1 vs. 135.1).

The Voyager has .8 inches more front headroom, .1 inches more front legroom, 2.3 inches more front hip room, 5.9 inches more front shoulder room, 1.1 inches more rear headroom, 7.4 inches more rear hip room, 4.9 inches more rear shoulder room, 3.3 inches more third row headroom, 6.8 inches more third row legroom, 9.4 inches more third row hip room and 8.1 inches more third row shoulder room than the CX-9.

For enhanced passenger comfort on long trips the Voyager’s middle and third row seats recline. The CX-9’s third row seats don’t recline.

The front step up height for the Voyager is 2 inches lower than the CX-9 (16.3” vs. 18.3”). The Voyager’s rear step up height is .6 inches lower than the CX-9’s (18.2” vs. 18.8”).

A low lift-over cargo hatch design makes loading and unloading the Voyager easier. The Voyager’s cargo hatch lift-over height is 24.3 inches, while the CX-9’s liftover is 31.6 inches.

The Voyager’s cargo area is larger than the CX-9’s in almost every dimension:

The Voyager has a standard third row seat which folds flat into the floor. This completely clears a very large cargo area quickly. The CX-9 doesn’t offer seats that fold into the floor.

Pressing a switch automatically lowers or raises the Voyager’s optional third row seats, to make changing between cargo and passengers easier. The CX-9 doesn’t offer automatic folding seats.

A standard locking glovebox (which can’t be accessed with the valet key) keeps your small valuables safer in the Voyager. The CX-9 doesn’t offer locking storage for small valuables.

The Voyager Limited non-Hybrid’s standard easy entry system glides the driver’s seat back when the door is unlocked or the ignition is switched off, making it easier for the driver to get in and out. The CX-9 doesn’t offer an easy entry system.

The Voyager’s instruments include an oil pressure gauge and a temperature gauge - which could save your engine! Often ‘idiot lights’ don’t warn you until damage has been done. The CX-9 does not have an oil pressure gauge.

The power windows standard on both the Voyager and the CX-9 have locks to prevent small children from operating them. When the lock on the Voyager is engaged the driver can still operate all of the windows, for instance to close one opened by a child. The CX-9 prevents the driver from operating the other windows just as it does the other passengers.

The Voyager’s power window, power lock, power mirror and cruise control switches are lit from behind, making them plainly visible and easier to operate at night. The CX-9’s power mirror switches are unlit, making them difficult to find at night and operate safely.

The Voyager’s standard outside mirrors include heating elements to clear off the mirrors for better visibility. Mazda charges extra for heated mirrors on the CX-9.
