2019 Mazda CX-9

Pros: Comprehensive list of available safety features; fuel economy

Cons: Less power than previous generation; top-line models are expensive

CG Says: The 2019 Mazda CX-9 gains some new features. Ventilated front seats, 360-degree surround-view camera, and Apple CarPLay/Android Auto functionality are newly available. Mazda’s midsized crossover SUV has three rows of seating for up to seven passengers. A 250-horsepower turbocharged 2.5-liter 4-cylinder paired with a six-speed automatic transmission is the sole powertrain. With its small engine and light weight, CX-9’s fuel economy is among the best in the midsize-SUV class. CX-9 is available with front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. Available safety features include Smart City Brake Support (a low-speed collision mitigation system), blind-spot alert, rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist with lane-departure warning, and auto-dimming high-beam headlamps. The CX-9 has a quiet, upscale cabin, along with engaging road manners for a midsize SUV. Although more spacious than the previous-generation, CX-9 is not quite as roomy as some competitors.
