We test drove on the same day the following vehicles: Ford Explorer, Toyota Highlander, Hyundai Veracruz, and the CX-9.
For the price, content and fun to drive factor, we couldn't go wrong with the CX-9.
It's quick, agile, spacious and well built.
Aside from poor fuel economy (still waiting to see if 17city/24hwy for FWD is really true), we have no complaints.
Bluetooth, keyless entry/ignition.
Daytime running lights as an option and gas mileage.
Auto dimming rearview mirror should be standard across the board.
