Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

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

By: 
thecarconnection.com

Remains one of the best all-round, reasonably priced EVs you can buy today.

Pros
Excellent,
efficient powertrain.
64kWh version provides big range

Cons
Should be more spacious.
Material quality could be better

By: 
topgear.com

Pros
Great electric range
Good fun to drive
Generous equipment

Cons
Other EVs have nicer interiors
Boot is a bit small
Quickest charging difficult to achieve

By: 
carwow.co.uk

The 64kWh version of the Hyundai Kona Electric has a fantastic real-world range between charges, plus it’s quick and well-equipped. However, excellent rivals including the Kia e-Niro and Volkswagen ID.3 are better all-rounders thanks to their superior ride comfort and more practical interiors.

Pros
Near 260-mile range in real-world conditions (64kWh battery)
Strong acceleration
Even the base model is well equipped

Cons
Choppy ride
Not as roomy as rivals
Interior could be classier
