- Comfortable seating for 7. Performance. Looks.
- Braking is a little soft. No hybrid model, yet.
The CX-9 is without a doubt, the best CUV out there. Mazda made the right move pairing the Japanese transmission with the Ford engine because this thing is great to drive. Drove all of the American competitors and although the GMs were larger, the drive didn't even come close to the CX-9. The CX-9 is quick and smooth even up in the mountains. The Acadia and the Outlook spent the entire trip looking for the right gear which got annoying in a hurry. The Ford Edge (same power plant as the CX-9 but with the US Transmission) was okay but it was smaller and lacked even the option for a third row. The Acura and the BMW beat the CX-9 for performance but the price on the CX-9 was the best across the board. The Volvo was nice but too expensive as well.
The CX-9 is very comfortable as we've proven with several road trips carrying 5 large adults and two kids. It didn't take a PhD to figure out how to get into the third row unlike in its American rivals. There are enough power outlets for games and DVD players. The GPS is okay but back-up camera, Bluetooth and of course the Bose are awesome. The power hatch is a nice touch too.
The only things that would have been a nice addition would have been LCD screens in the headrests for an entertainment option with the moon roof and maybe a trip computer.
Overall, the size, comfort and ride really set this CUV apart from the rest. 7000+ miles in three months and we are loving it.
