2021 Mazda CX-9 rear seats
  • Autotrader: “The 2021 Mazda CX-9 is a midsize 3-row crossover/SUV for people who would much rather buy a sport sedan. And they would have done as well if it wasn’t for those pesky kids. It’s a rare machine that can be family-friendly and driver-friendly at the same time, but the CX-9 has pulled it off.”
  • Car and Driver: “Handling is far sharper than any of its rivals’ and it’s powered by a turbocharged four-cylinder that will provide enough pep for most drivers.”
  • Car and Driver: “Surprisingly light on its feet, it often feels as if you’re driving a smaller SUV. The suspension is firm, but it’s still supple enough riding over rough stretches of road.
  • Kelley Blue Book: “The CX-9’s tidy dimensions make it easy to maneuver in tight situations. Its turbocharged 4-cylinder engine delivers impressive V6-like power balanced with excellent fuel economy.”

MAZDA CX-9 Reviews: Comfort and Convenience

According to Car and Driver’s CX-9 review, the “tastefully arranged soft-touch plastic with handsome graining, brushed aluminum” appointments inside the cabin “wouldn’t look out of place in an Audi”. Reviewers at Kelley Blue Book also have a lot of love for the CX-9’s “near-luxury atmosphere” — and you’ll find similar sentiments no matter which CX-9 review you read:

  • Car and Driver: “The CX-9 remains one of our favorite SUVs to recommend to those who value athletic handling and driver engagement as much as we do.”
  • Kelley Blue Book: “The 2021 Mazda CX-9 competes in the midsize 3-row SUV/crossover arena, but it’s really in a class of its own. The exterior is sleek and harmonious, modern yet understated. And the interior is so upscale that it could easily have come from Audi or Lexus.”
  • Motortrend: “Now, all models come with a 10.3-inch screen with the latest Mazda Connect interface. The base 2021 Mazda CX-9 Sport comes standard with a host of goodies including heated front seats, three-zone automatic climate control, keyless entry, push-button start, and adaptive cruise control.”
