Yet one more three-row crossover. Yawn.

It’s even painted white, just like the equipment it’s sure to be.

However individuals maintain shopping for this stuff, prefer it or not. Since few need my splendid household hauler – the minivan – this style is the best approach to haul greater than 5 individuals. And I’d argue that this 2019 Mazda CX-9 is the best of the breed.

2019 Mazda CX-9 profile

I’m not going to lapse into lazy tropes comparable to “the CX-9 is sort of a Miata, solely a crossover!” or some such factor. It’s good, however physics is a actuality. There’s solely a lot efficiency one can get out of a tall vehicle that weighs roughly double that of the Miata, in any case.

However neither is the CX-9 a chore to drive. Conversely, this is likely one of the higher dealing with three-row automobiles of any sort I’ve skilled. Energy from the turbocharged 4-cylinder is sweet, if not neck-snapping. Steering, whereas mild, is fast and exact. The experience is agency sufficient to attenuate lean when hustling round an off-ramp whereas operating late for the child’s basketball recreation, but not too agency to upset the youngsters shuffled to the third row when Grandma hops in after yet one more devastating loss to these uppity women from the personal faculty, providing to let the youngsters drown their sorrows in ice cream.

Leg room is a contact tight in that third row – the youthful youngster at slightly below 5 ft tall was high quality, whereas the 5-foot-5 seventh grader complained about her knees towards the second-row seatback. However she’s almost an adolescent – she all the time complains about one thing. One factor the CX-9 features by nipping at that third-row legroom? Respectable cargo area behind the third row. This is likely one of the best three-row crossovers for useable baggage area behind that third row. Street journeys are attainable.

Second-row seats are all-day snug, with head and legroom aplenty. Up entrance, I discovered loads of energy changes on the driving force’s seat, permitting me to shortly loosen up in consolation. I’m not utterly enamored with the colour of the leather-based seats in a household vehicle. Whereas the seats look good-looking, I’d be involved that the off-white leather-based would shortly degrade towards the “off” aspect of the equation when confronted with the filth my all the time-lively-in-sports activities youngsters can hand out.

There’s a purpose I all the time attempt to photograph the interior of my test automobiles earlier than the youngsters have been within the car.

When it was time to select the youngsters up, the CX-9 was simply the best-wanting crossover in line on the faculty. It’s merely beautiful, a minimum of from the entrance, the place the chromed pentagon(ish) company grille blends superbly into the wraparound headlamps.

Behind the A-pillar, the styling is a little more generic, however the mild downward slope to the higher window line – paired with the quick rake to the rear glass – visually lowers the roofline with out affecting precise headroom. It’s a neat visible trick. A extra upright rear glass may give a bit extra cargo room, however at this level, the CX-9 seems rather less crossover and a bit extra tall wagon to me. It’s a advantageous distinction, to make sure, nevertheless it’s a pleasant change from the basic blobs that fill the parking zone.

That’s the great thing about this CX-9. It’s simply totally different sufficient to get observed, however not radical sufficient to offend. It’s plush sufficient to woo luxurious consumers, however priced extra like a mainstream mannequin. It drives properly, it appears good. What’s to not love?
