Our only issues are lack of leg room in second row. My daughter is 5'5 and has legs for says. She complains of being cramped every morning. Secondly, we wish the dash screen was touch operated while driving. I'm sure it's not for safety reasons but my wife would like to operate it while I drive. Oh and we bought the Signature, THE MACK DADDY! NO WIRELESS PHONE CHARGER! NO FOOT WELL LIGHTING! NO LIGHTS IN THE CONSOLES! NO LIGHTS IN THE GLOVEBOX! Also it does not display tire pressure! WTH Mazda?

It’s Still New But It Is So Great

by DougGalveston from Galveston, TX | September 18, 2020

So my wife and I had our first daughter last year and I was still driving my 2008 Mitsubishi Eclipse with her in the back seat (I was literally putting her in her car seat through the trunk). We now have a MAJOR upgrade. The 2020 Mazda CX-9 Touring w/ premium package is exactly what the doctor ordered. Leather trimmed seats, moonroof, Bose sound, 2nd row captains seats, and more make this a no brainer. Also, the STANDARD suite of safety features is a must for a new parent. After reading some reviews I was surprised at how comfortable I was in all the seats (I’m 6’2”). For a larger vehicle, it drives like my eclipse (great handling, sporty get up and go). This was also a surprise given the 4 liter engine. For a non-luxury brand and a midrange trim level, this car feels lux, even if it’s not. It is quiet inside, the ride is comfortable, and I feel confident and safe driving my family.

5 Passenger SUV

by Lois from Downingtown | September 08, 2020

The exterior styling caught my eye, thought i would check it out when my current lease was winding down. The exterior styling was sporty,the inside was nice too. There are plenty of amentities or goodies as some would say. I felt like it was too much like sliding into a cockpit, just surrounded with a lot of gadgets. The engine seemed louder than others, a 4 cylinder with a turbo. Maybe due to a lack of insulation or the loudness not sure. It seemed strained to pullout into traffic, a bit too much body roll on a back road and I was not going over 35 ! Not too excited, not excited enough to want to drive it for 3 yrs that is for sure. The cargo area seemed ample for a 5 passenger vehicle. Overall I didn't like feeling crammed in the front seating area and the drivers seat was ok , I have a bad back and need more support.
