Powerful standard engine provides quick acceleration
Lots of advanced features
Available plug-in hybrid powertrain

Cons

Overly soft handling saps driver confidence
Subpar visibility to the front and rear

The 2021 Lincoln Aviator drops sensational style and space, but the Grand Touring plug-in’s a bit of a misfire.

Pros
A 7/8ths Navigator
Big infotainment displays
Hybrid plug-in
Lots of room for four adults
Gorgeous Black Label interiors

Cons
It’s $$$$
Third row is small
The V-6 moans
Grand Touring: not electric enough?

By:

The Aviator sees only minor changes for 2021, including optional 21- and 22-inch wheel designs, three new colors (Asher Gray, Ocean Drive Blue, and Flight Blue), and an available Monochromatic Reserve appearance package. The Reserve trim receives a panoramic sunroof, and the top-flight Black Label gains soft-close doors. The Elements package—found on the Reserve and Grand Touring models—now comes with heated and ventilated front seats.

Pros
Polished turbo V-6 powertrain,
comfortable interior,
plenty of curb appeal.

Cons
Unrefined optional hybrid powertrain,
disappointing fuel economy,
most expensive Black Label trim encroaches Navigator's price range.

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
