Want to carry 7 people in vehicle that doesn't scream "soccer mom" and want decent mileage as well. Enter the CX-9. With its three rows of seating, respectable fuel economy, handling, and smooth lines make for a stylish, yet practical people hauler. It has been in production since 1996, 2010 sees a minor refresh. As it was the 2008 Motor Trend Sport/Utility of the year, they haven't seen the need to make any major changes.

This vehicle can haul 7 people in car like comfort. It's four wheel independent suspension provide a sporty ride, and helps control body roll even over rough pavement. Some may find this very controlled ride to be somewhat firmer than that of the competition. Steering is also well executed on the CX-9. Perfectly weighted and very responsive. This goes a long way towards driver confidence behind the wheel of this large Mazda.

While it's available in several trim levels, they are all powered by a 3.7 liter V-6 generating 273 horsepower and 270 Ft.- lbs. of torque. This power is routed through a six speed automatic transmission.

The CX-9 is a nice vehicle, but it's hardly a Mazda. The entire package feels like it could be another one of the General Motors Acadia/Enclave/Traverse crossover trio from the size, to the driving dynamics, to the styling. That's not really a slam; the GM crossovers are fine vehicles-it's just that I expect more character from a Mazda.

The CX-9's All-Star award from 2008 still shines, as this remains one of the best-handling big crossovers on the market. The Ford Flex is currently both my and the magazine's official preference, as far as All-Star awards go, but the good-driving Mazda is a great alternative with a more traditional crossover's jellybean shape. (Personally, I somewhat prefer the Flex's boxy look, but I know many people who simply can't stand the Ford's styling.) It isn't as fast as an EcoBoosted Flex, but the CX-9 feels pretty quick for such a large vehicle.
