Total Articles: 5
There are a great deal of wonderful SUV’s on the lot for the 2014 year. Two of the best choices for a family car are the 2014 Mazda CX-9 and the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Both have a great exterior design, good features and are roomy, but which one is the best buy?
The 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee
The Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicles have been around for quite some time. They began manufacturing these cars back in 1992. The public has grown to love the dependability of the Jeep name and the stylish look. The Jeep is considered a mid-size SUV. The MSRP for this car is $29,395. When it comes to fuel economy, it gets about 17 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway. However, it does have an optional feature, which is called Ecodiesel, and it helps with fuel economy. This allows a driver to get up to 30 mpg on the freeway. So, fuel economy has perks on long trips with the Jeep Grand Cherokee.
This SUV is an eight speed automatic, so there is definitely no lack of power. The turbo diesel engine option is something that is new to this vehicle this year. While this feature will give the SUV more power and better fuel economy, it comes with a cost. The old version of this Jeep had a chopped off back end, which most people didn't like. However, the newer style is a force to be reckoned with. It has a bold look and rivals cars in a much higher price range.
Inside there is plenty of room to move around. It has a large cargo area, and it is a comfortable ride. Another accessory that is family friend includes the Blu-Ray DVD entertainment system. The new Uconnect system gives you access Bluetooth connectivity and Mobile device integration, as well as an available Wi-Fi hotspot. Another impressive interior feature us the CommandView sunroof which is a dual-paned sliding-glass to help you enjoy the sun and outdoors.
The 2014 Mazda CX-9
The Mazda CX-9 is a rather new SUV on the market. It was first introduced in 2006. The Mazda is considered to be a full size crossover, and it is the largest vehicle the company makes. So if size matters, this car may be appealing to larger families. As far as gas mileage is concerned, this SUV will get about 17 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the freeway. The MSRP on this car is $29,985. Built on the Ford Edge platform, this car has a great wheelbase. It has the unique look of a car, van and SUV all in one.
Under the hood is a powerful 3.7 liter engine. It has 273 horsepower and uses regular gasoline. The six speed transmission is punchy yet refined. Inside the cabin is a nice ride for all three rows of seats. The seats, they are a very comfortable make, and the main two seats can hold five large adults with ease. The rear seat is more for smaller children, but it is still a nice feature. The back wagon is not only spacious but tall. This makes hauling all types of cargo easy. The three zone temperature control ensures that every rider will be comfortable. The car has a 5.8” touch screen system complete with Blue Tooth capability and HD Radio technology. With a Bose Centerpoint sound system and a DVD entertainment option, it’s a great vehicle for children and adults alike.
With any family car, there is always the worry about safety. Upgraded from last year, this model is sporting many safety upgrades like, the new Forward Obstruction Warning System. It also has High Beam Control and Rear Cross Traffic Alert. All of the vehicle interior controls are on the steering wheel. This allows the driver to focus on the road and is considered to be safer. Though the safety issues are great, the little extras like heated seats, heated side mirrors and optional 20” wheels make this vehicle a must have.
Which Car Is Best?
They both have a great look, and anyone would be proud to drive either car. The Jeep looks more expensive than its price range, and rivals some of the more luxurious SUV’s with bigger price tags. But, the 2014 Mazda CX-9 is not a shabby ride either. In fact, this crossover has a unique look all its own. The Mazda offers more features for just a few hundred dollar difference than that of the Jeep. It’s large on the inside and out and offers ample room for the family.
