2012 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring 4dr SUV AWD (3.7L 6cyl 6A)
I needed to consolidate cars. My 13 year old 4Runner died and while I absolutely loved my Infiniti M45 Sport, I decided 3 cars ('99 MX5 Miata 10th Anniversary edition) was one too many. I wanted the cargo ccapacity of the 4Runner and the handling of the M45.
I got both in the CX9 Grand Touring. This car is great! Terrific handling, good acceleration (it's not the M45) and enough high end features and gadgets to keep me happy. Mazda understands
the importance of good ergonomics. The dash and controls are laid out well. The leather seats are very comfortable.
There is plenty of room, front and back, ingress and egress is easy. A perfect combination of performance and functionality
Blue Tooth connectivity is awesome. I listen to the 25 gb of music I have on my phone through the Bose system and change tracks and volume through the steering wheel controls. Very Cool! The Back Up camera is invaluable but the best feature are blind spot warining system. It works like a dream!
Back Up lights could be brighter (for the camera at night). That's about it!
