2012 mazda cx-9 Reviews and News

2012 Mazda CX-9
2012 Mazda CX-9
Despite visual similarities with its smaller sibling, the CX-9 is not simply a stretched version of the CX-7. Its long wheelbase leaves lots of room for passengers inside, and with twenty-inch wheels pushed far to the corners, the CX-9 has the handling moves to match its sporty looks. Best of all, the CX-9 is blessed with what is likely the best steering of any crossover, making this a good choice for driving enthusiasts who need space for friends and family. The CX-9 is powered by a smooth, 60-degree V-6 engine that displaces 3.7 liters and produces 273 hp and 249 lb-ft of torque. The standard six-speed automatic transmission is smooth and responsive, and all-wheel drive is optional. (Base models are front-wheel drive.) Blind-spot monitoring is an unusual option in this segment (though it's now proliferating across Mazda's entire lineup), but the usual luxury goodies are all present, including a touch-screen navigation system with real-time traffic information and a rearview camera, heated seats, Bluetooth hands-free integration, and a Bose high-end audio system. The CX-9's third row isn't quite as commodious as those of the biggest minivans, but this crossover remains a fantastic alternative to traditional vans and more boxy and upright SUVs.

Mazda's new CX-9 is here, and it's headed to the Australian International Motor Show in Sydney: the automaker previewed the family hauler a month before the refreshed car will take the stage.

When the CX-9 debuted in 2007, I remember being wowed by the fact that even though it was roughly the size of a Chevy Tahoe (same length and within a few inches in width and height), it looked much less massive or much more svelte than anyone thought a seven-passenger SUV could be. However, that styling does come at a price: while the cargo area may have 100.7 cubic feet of space, it is long and skinny, making the space somewhat difficult to pack without climbing in the rear doors. Wide items (like my dining room table) are out of the question, too, thanks to the third row armrests/cupholders hiding the rear suspension components. Maybe it's a good thing - the CX-9 is always a surprise with its high fun-to-drive factor; you don't want to end up tossing all that cargo around.
