2022 Mazda CX-9

Pros: Comprehensive list of available safety features; fuel economy

Cons: Less overall interior space than some three-row class rivals; top-line models are expensive

CG Says: The 2022 Mazda CX-9 gets standard all-wheel drive and a new Touring Plus trim level, but is otherwise unchanged. 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 6-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. Safety features include low-speed collision mitigation system, adaptive cruise control with stop and go, lane-departure warning, blind-spot alert, rear cross-traffic alert, and lane-keep assist. The CX-9 has a quiet, upscale cabin, along with engaging road manners for a midsize SUV, although it is not quite as roomy as some competitors.
