Product Overview

Mazda CX-9 II (chassis code TC) is a large crossover in production from 2016. It is available with a single turbocharged inline-4 engine that displaced 2.5 liters.
Sitting at the top of Mazda's global lineup, the CX-9 Mk2 has good exterior styling and interior build quality. Still, it is not engineered for the driver, unlike the MX-5.
Those who drive offroad, for work or leisure, need to think twice before pulling the trigger: the Mazda CX-9 II is hardly the "offroader" that Mazda would like you to think. Utility-minded owners will love the 2017L (71cu-ft) cargo space.
Drivers who appreciate handling should keep in mind that the Mazda CX-9 II uses MacPherson front suspension, which doesn't provide the best cornering performance.

Reviewers from cnet have found the following***:
The Mazda CX-9 has been sold in its current form since 2016. Its neat proportions and graceful lines remind me of a ballet dancer. The cockpit is a pretty quiet place to be, too, although I was left wanting for more comfort. Mazda's infotainment outside phone mirroring leaves a lot to be desired.

  • Gorgeous interior
  • Comfortable ride
  • Decent infotainment
  • Poor cargo space
  • Flimsy 360-degree camera

Reviewers from cnet have found the following***:
The CX-9's ride is dialed in; it carries itself better than some "luxury" vehicles. The general design is elegant and clean, plus the materials used are impressively premium. The second-row bucket seats could be more comfortable and the aftmost accommodations are a tight squeeze.

  • Powerful turbocharged engine
  • Comfortable second-row seats
  • Decent fuel economy
  • Pricier than rivals
  • No third-row seat

Reviewers from cnet have found the following***:
Every CX-9 is motivated by a 2.5-liter turbocharged I4. When running 93-octane fuel, the big-block four offers up 250 horsepower and 320 pound-feet of torque. The turbo four offers loads of low-end torque, but sounds raspy. Mazda's drivetrain, however, is on the coarser side of the sound spectrum.

  • Sleek styling
  • Comfortable ride
  • Excellent infotainment tech
  • Lack of rear parking sensors
  • Ridiculously cramped back seats

Reviewers from digitaltrends have found the following***:
Mazda's CX-9 loses to both in the interior space department, as both offer heaps more passenger space. The Atlas can hold 96.8 cubic feet of cargo and the Telluride is rated at a total of 87 cubic feet. Mazda's warranty lands somewhere in the middle of the class, as it offers a three-year, 36,000-mile basic warranty.

  • Luxurious interior
  • Comfortable ride
  • Good fuel economy
  • Lack of standard safety features
