Best 7 Passenger SUV out there
By JT on
2010 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring 4dr SUV AWD (3.7L 6cyl 6A)
Had it two weeks. Thrill to drive. You name it, we considered it. Bottom line was MDX, Traverse, and CX-9. MDX offered really no extra value for the money and the 2nd row didn't allow rear entry on both sides! MDX 3rd row terrible. Easy on the CX-9. The Traverse was just too long for our garage. It's half a foot longer than a minivan. For our family, this was the best value and ride. We got every feature and were treated well. No regrets. We were surprised how much we liked CX-9. Always presumed we'd buy an MDX (actually disappointed it wasn't as good as we'd expected).
Bluetooth streaming to phone and able to stream music from iphone. Ride is excellent and the car is beautiful. Plenty of room for passengers. Regular gas!
More room behind 3rd row. Better mileage. Integrated ipod standard.
