After driving it for only 1 week, my wife absolutely loves it. It is stylish and elegant, very quiet ride and comfortable. The 3rd seat is what sold me, plenty of leg room for an adult, same as the 2nd row. Although I think Mazda could have dressed up the interior with more chrome pieces, I still like the way it looks, I feel that the CX-9 is more ergonomic than other crossovers. We looked at GMC Acadia, Chevy Traverse, Honda Crosstour, Hyundai SantaFe and Toyota Venza and none appealed to us as much as the CX-9. I definatelly recommend it.
Stylish appearance that any age driver should feel proud. Very ergonomic and comfortable. Back-up camera is a nice feature. Sound system is very nice and clear.
I feel that Mazda could have added an integrated Homelink system and automatic On/OFF driving lights. And a sunroof option in the Sport package would have been nice too.
