If you’re looking for a family SUV that looks, handles and drives like it should be in this class, the 2019 Mazda CX-9 will respond to this itch.

If you’re looking for some elegance in your next family car, the 2019 Mazda CX-9 has it all in order. Wearing Mazda’s “Soul of Motion” design philosophy, the 2019 Mazda CX-9 metal foil emphasizes fluid shapes, organic shapes and the idea of movement, even at rest. We think it’s beautiful. This big grid at the front adds to the credibility of the premium, but that does not seem exaggerated. The sloped roof and front position make this SUV smaller than it is, and even its rear is beautiful thanks to the horizontal treatment of the taillights and the rear edge under the window. A pair of exhaust outlets further highlights the sporty nature of this SUV.
All 2019 Mazda CX-9 have 3 row seats and 7 passengers. Adults fit well in the second row, but the third is particularly suitable for children. The front seats are spacious and the area seems dominant thanks to a large console. In this console are a rotating dial and auxiliary buttons that control the information and entertainment display mounted on the 2019 Mazda CX-9 board. The front view is good and we like the rim of the left window to be wide enough to support one arm. The 2019 Mazda CX-9 drives the Honda Pilot and the Toyota Highlander in the luggage compartment, but there is a respectable 71.2 cubic feet with the second and third rows folded.

Its EPA estimated 22 mpg in the city, and its 28 mpg on the road, are among the highest fuel consumption ratings of our mid-size SUV ratings. What the 2019 Mazda CX-9 does not do as well is carry heavy trailers, and more than a dozen rivals can overcome it.
