Pros

Long list of standard and optional features
Well-balanced ride and handling

Cons
Unimpressive cargo space
Cramped optional third-row seats
Some distracting infotainment controls

By: 
usnews.com

Even with seating for up to seven passengers, the CX-9 still offers plenty of that Mazda magic.

Pros
A rare fun-to-drive SUV,
near-luxury cabin trimmings,
top-quality fit-and-finish
Cons
Limited cargo space with rearmost seat in use,
tight quarters for third-row passengers.

By: 
caranddriver.com

The 2021 Mazda CX-9 crossover SUV rewards drivers with good road manners, but takes a penalty in third-row space.

Pros
Very attractive
Well-done interior
Good safety gear
Engaging responsiveness

Cons
Distracting infotainment controller
Cramped third-row and cargo space
Limited lineup
