Top car reviewers have praised the Mazda CX-9. Here’s what they’ve been saying:
- Car and Driver: “If you’re craving some zoom-zoom in your kid carrier, Mazda’s got just the ticket. The CX-9 provides a healthy dose of driving fun while seating seven in a tastefully styled cabin. The 3.7-liter V-6 delivers plenty of passing power, the six-speed automatic offers manual gear selection, and steering response is sharp and communicative. Fuel economy is a bit lower than that of its more modern rivals, but we think it’s a small price to pay for a family hauler that behaves like a sporty hatchback.”
- The Car Connection: “The 2015 Mazda CX-9 is an outlier compared to Mazda’s newest products. It’s by far the brand’s largest vehicle, it’s the only Mazda to come with a V-6 engine…Like other Mazdas past and present, however, the CX-9 puts emphasis on pleasing the driver as well as the passengers. It ranks as one of the better three-row crossover options and satisfies with its nimble dynamics.”
The Mazda CX-9 is due for a redesign soon. The upcoming 2016 Mazda CX-9 is rumored to use a turbocharged 2.5L four-cylinder engine, with a stiff and lightweight chassis for better handling. SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY will also be an important addition to the Mazda CX-9.
