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
