Highest Projected Resale Value in the Full-Size Utility Segment
CX-9 won the ALG 2011 Residual Value Award for Best Full-Size Utility signifying it will retain a higher percentage of its original price than Honda Pilot, Toyota Sequoia, Chevrolet Traverse, Ford Flex, GMC Acadia and Nissan Armada after a three-year period.
2008 All-Star Award Still Shines
"The CX-9's All-Star award from 2008 still shines, as this remains one of the best-handling big crossovers on the market."
— Automobilemag.com | January 2010
Winner, Midsize SUV Comparison
"The drive itself has been getting its fair share of thumbs-up, though, with descriptors like "fun" and "engaging" being tossed about. In all likelihood, this will be one of the better-handling cars in this growing segment."
— Motor Trend | May 2011
Surprisingly Supple Ride
"The CX-9 has communicative steering, really good body control for an SUV, and actually seems to like corners, which isn't always the case with this type of vehicle. The ride quality is surprisingly supple in view of this athleticism."
— CarandDriver.com | April 2010
"Most Enjoyable Driving Experience in its Class"
"For a biggish SUV, the CX-9 offers the most enjoyable driving experience in its class. Mazda seems to take the view that just because a vehicle has to haul humans and cargo around, it doesn't have to be a fun-free zone."
— CarandDriver.com | April 2010
More Fun Than You'd Expect
"In a crowded class, the CX-9 distinguishes itself with a high-quality interior and more driving fun than you'd expect from a large, seven-seat crossover."
— Cars.com | May 2010
Drives Like a Vehicle Half its Size
"This Mazda should be required driving for those who say that full-size SUVs are, by definition, a snooze to pilot — it whips through corners and hustles down straightaways like a vehicle half its size."
— Edmunds.com, 2010 CX-9 Road Test Review
"Sports Car of Its Class"
"This svelte seven-seater is the sports car of its class, with nimble handling and a spirited engine."
— Parents Magazine | June 2009
"Made Easy Work of Winding Roads"
"The CX-9 made easy work of winding roads, without sacrificing ride comfort. Its chassis tuning helped the Mazda charm even those drivers far outside its target market."
