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.

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

For 2021 Manual transmission discontinued.Other minor changes to standard and optional feature availability.

Pros
Impressive number of features for your money
For its size, easy to get in and out of
Simple control layout

Cons
Engine sounds and feels a little coarse at higher speeds
All-wheel drive isn't offered
One of the smaller extra-small SUVs in the class

After only one year, Hyundai discontinues the standard manual transmission. All models now have a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). The Venue also drops the standard steel wheels, with the base model now riding on a set of alloy rims. The Convenience package, which was previously optional on the SEL, now becomes standard on that trim level. It includes blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, and a sliding armrest.

PROS
Excellent value,
surprising passenger space,
many standard driver assists.

CONS
Apathetic highway acceleration,
busy highway behavior,
missing some desirable options.
