Initially I set out to purchase either a land rover, Audi, Alfa romeo or an infinity Suv. I test drove them all. "I bought a Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring" And I'll tell you why, to start with, the car is eye candy Especially with the soul red crystal paint, and the interior... well, it was better than all the rest. The handling is superb, and the ride great. Taking into consideration there's always a compromise with ride, if you're into sport handling. The controls are placed appropriately with the navigation, audio and drive assistance located at your finger tips on the center council While your arm is at rest. I have read some negative reviews concerning the storage in the rear. If this is a concern for you you may want to sacrifice elegant styling for a suitcase style rear end. I could really go on and on about this vehicle , it exceeds my expectations. At this time I would like to leave by noting one last item. All of the other Luxury Suv's that I drove have a 2.0 Turbo charged engine that required premium fuel. While my CX9 grand touring has a 2.5 l Turbo engine that requires only "regular fuel." ZOOM,ZOOM,ZOOM!

Family loves the new vehicle

Only driven about 2k miles so far and still under 20k so can't say anything about reliability thus far. My only problem with the vehicle is that I can't put Google maps into the navigation and the current navigation doesn't account for traffic and the route calculations. Very comfortable ride weather you sit in the front, middle, or back row. The bose sound system sounds amazing, and there are a lot of nice safety features your can adjust to your preferences or turn off entirely if you don't want them. The heads up display is a great feature. It would be even better if the navigation system in the vehicle were improved or just used Google maps.

Great car for the money!

A delight to drive! Striking exterior and beautifully finished interior. Reliable with all the luxuries you’ll find on much pricier brands. 2019 models have Apple CarPlay...I had to have it added to my 2018 model (I believe this should be standard on all models to be competitive). Fits 7 pax in comfort, and easy operation of seats in back to manipulate your interior space. Fun to drive and great sound system built in. Very happy!
