The Mazda CX-9 fills a void in the market place — a spacious, three-row car that can carry kids, dogs, groceries, and junk and still have a cool factor to it. Not off the charts cool, but enough that people don’t automatically ask you about your kids and your knee operation.
In other words, it offers a terrific driving experience with all of the practical necessities of lugging a well-lived life. Again, the Mazda really does meld a sporty ride, which the essence of the Mazda brand, with a family vehicle. It’s a large cross-over that offers better-than-average fuel efficiency with all the bells and whistles and spaced needed for most families.
