2008 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring 4dr SUV AWD (3.7L 6cyl 6A)
Much better looking than in the pictures. I got Sand on Black. Current car couldn't get three child seats across the back. Moreover, with 7 month old, wanted option to have adult in second row to administer bottle. Wife didn't want SUV, I didn't want minivan - perfect compromise. Whilst not quite BMW interior, its probably up there with Passat top of the line, with Passat pricing. Parked next to Q7 in city garage, could barely distinguish the two side-by-side.
Bluetooth, night lighting on gauges, third row seat simplicity, wood trim is dark enough not to look cheap.
