Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

For 2018, the Mazda CX-9 delivers a handful of small but useful changes. Standard on all models is Mazda's G-Vectoring Control, a new electronic system that the company says improves steering and stability in turns. All trims offer new standard safety features and driver aids, ranging from blind-spot monitoring on Sport trims to front parking sensors on upper trims.

PROS
With sharp, modern style inside and out, the CX-9 feels richer than its cost
Sporty handling makes it fun to drive
Comfortable interior remains quiet on the highway
Top-level Signature trim is on par with some luxury-brand competitors

CONS
Third-row seats aren't especially accommodating
Cargo capacity isn't as generous as in competitors

The Mazda CX-9 is a stylish crossover SUV that puts others on notice. It's one of the best looking three-row crossovers on the market, and boasts several interior features and creature comforts found in much pricier SUVs.The 2018 Mazda CX-9 meets or exceeds expectations for what a mainstream three-row crossover can be.

Pros
Remarkable exterior style
Flexible interior
Better advanced safety features
Good infotainment screen..

Cons
.but it’s not a touchscreen
Cramped interior for its size
Not as many options as others
No advanced powertrains

The 2018 Mazda CX-9 ranked #7 in Midsize SUVs. Currently the Mazda CX-9 has a score of 8.4 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 25 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros

Upmarket cabin
Top-tier gas mileage

Cons
Engine can be overtaxed by full loads

Below-average predicted reliability

The 2018 BMW X2 has agile handling to match its sleek looks, and while it gives up some interior space for the low roofline, it still retains some crossover utility.

Pros
Sprightly acceleration
Agile handling
Stylish design
Efficient for a crossover
Good backseat space

Cons
Interior space is compromised
A front-drive BMW?
Pricing creeps up quickly
Most safety features are optional and pricey

By: 
thecarconnection.com

Boldly styled on the outside, the X2 shares its underpinnings with the already excellent X1. A 228-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four mates to an eight-speed automatic transmission with front- or all-wheel drive. The fun-to-drive X2 went from 0–60 in 6.4 seconds in our testing. Connectivity options include a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot and Apple CarPlay. Available safety tech includes lane-departure warning, automatic high-beams, forward-collision warning, and low-speed automated emergency braking.

Pros
Attractive inside and out,
nails the fun-to-drive quotient.

Cons
Stiff ride,
road and suspension noise,
high as-tested price.

By: 
caranddriver.com

One of the nicest-looking BMWs of late also happens to be one of the most affordable, but despite its gorgeous design, it's far from perfect.

Pros
Exterior design
Driving dynamics
Interior fit and finish
Spacious for its size
Very competent powertrain
Great ride comfort (Adaptive Suspension), infotainment system

Cons
Misses out on full autonomous emergency braking
Apple CarPlay optional and an ongoing cost
Interior carry-over from X1 showing its age
