Prev1 of 2Next


The 2016 Mazda CX-9 is the most awesome SUV ever. I tested it out for a week by taking a family trip from Miami to Orlando during Thanksgiving. Together, a family of six took a three hour drive to spend the holidays with the rest of our family. The CX-9 is equipped with so many features from its Bose audio surround sound to its leather seats, sunroof and navigation the car is super pleasurable to drive. A few more list of features are the Mazda advanced keyless entry, push start system, it has a 7-passenger seating capacity, bluetooth and that’s just a few of its many capabilities. There’s almost no road noise at all while driving, Mazda did a really great job by sound proofing it.

One complaint I do have is the third row seating on the inside for passengers. If you’re driving a long distance and you end up on the third row it can become quite uncomfortable. The vehicles braking assist system is very sensitive, which is a good thing for those last minute emergency stops. The lane keeping assist was helpful in so many ways I love how it alerts you when it detects that the vehicle is about to deviate from a traffic lane and it is not yet safe to maneuver. If I had to rate one feature as my favorite, I was impressed by Mazda’s driving power and dynamic.


The engine felt like a typical V6, only more powerful at the initial pickup. The car handles very well and feels much smaller and lighter in turns. It’s so smooth, you almost forget that this its a 3-row SUV. While driving, in the windshield it shows you a glare of the speed limit you’re going and the speed limit in the area that you’re in. If you’re driving you’re the only one that can see this feature none of your passengers can.

If I had to rate the Mazda CX-9 I would give it 5 out of 5 stars. Like I stated previously my only complaint was the third row seating space was uncomfortable, but that can easily be reconstructed. All in all I am in love with the Mazda CX-9, it’s a magnificent piece of art and I couldn’t have asked to test a better vehicle.
