It's called the EQC and is targeted at the Jaguar I-Pace, Tesla Model X, and imminent Audi e-tron.

Pros
Quiet, wafting driving experience
Loaded with cabin tech
Outstanding safety credentials
Understated design a genuine point of difference

Cons
Moderate driving range
Back seats and boot nothing special
Front suspension can get crashy
Supply appears to be quite limited

Mazda has given the CX-9 several upgrades for 2020, not least of which is a standard suite of driver-assistance features called i-Activsense. The bundle includes automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning, and lane-keeping assist. Also now standard are heated front seats with power adjustments for the driver, rain-sensing windshield wipers, automatic headlamps, and heated exterior mirrors. Touring, Grand Touring, and Signature models now come with a larger 9.0-inch infotainment display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, a new key-fob design, and power-adjustable second-row seats.

Pros
Snappy driving dynamics, great fuel economy, premium cabin.

Cons
Small cargo bay, third row is only for kids, low towing capacity.
