I traded my Mercedes R350 on a new Mazda CX9 Sport; what a value! Even the base level is well optioned, including heated seats. I added leather as a dealer installed option which was well worth it because the quality is much higher than the factory hides and it is less expensive that upgrading to the Touring model. My Mazda rides and drives like a dream and the styling is awesome. The cargo room with the seats folded down is enough for furniture and unlike my Mercedes you don't have to remove the headrests to put the seats down. If you are in the market for a 7 passenger, AWD vehicle, this is the one!
wide opening doors, room for cargo with seats that are a snap to fold down
