And like any Mazda, it also delivers a full list of standard features that helps it to stick out among the competition, including a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob and Bluetooth handsfree calling.

Of course, you do have your pick of vehicles from other automakers. Many people thinking about the Mazda CX-9 also consider the Nissan Murano. Besides standard features, passenger occupancy and space is what really sets the CX-9 apart from the similarly priced 2014 Nissan Murano.
