Performance: With the added power for 2020, the CX-9 is very responsive with quick acceleration from a stop—especially with all-wheel drive. More athletic than some competitors, the CX-9 handles well on a winding road with good steering and brakes. The CX-9 drives like a smaller SUV with good maneuverability around town. The smooth-shifting transmission adds to the Mazda's everyday drivability.
Interior: The CX-9 may not be considered a luxury SUV, but the interior design is simple and elegant, trimmed in quality materials. Getting in and out is easy, and the new second-row captain's chairs add to the comfort of rear passengers. These new seats also make access to the third row more convenient.
Comfort: The CX-9 delivers a smooth ride and strikes a nice balance between sporty and comfortable. Seats in the front row provide ample support and can be heated or cooled. Rear passengers get good legroom and headroom with either captain's chairs or the three-seat bench. The third row is tight on legroom, but it's wider than the third row in other three-row SUVs so it doesn't feel as cramped.
Storage: For a three-row SUV, the CX-9 is short on cargo space—with the third row in place, there's just 14.4 cubic feet, barely enough room for one suitcase. Folding the rear seats does increase the overall storage area to 71.2 cubic feet, but that is considerably less than competitors like the Kia Telluride.
