2007 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
We looked at everything in a 7 passenger configuration, at the end we where left with the CX9, Honda Oddyssey, and Audi Q7. The Mazda beats them on almost every level. If this car had captains chairs it would have no comparison, not even the Acadia/Outlook.
Key, AC system, look and feel. Big, without feeling like a big car. We had a BMX X3, and the ride is almost as fun, yet with a newborn and a 2 year old, there is no need for so much driving excitement.
Auto locks (this is a family vehicle!), captains chairs.
