The dignified profile of the Mazda CX-9 complements its compact and comfortable interior. We were quickly impressed by the positioning and brightness of the dashboard and its splendid digital components. Having the opportunity to take this intriguing charmer for a test drive, we set course on a 70 mile trip between Miami and West Palm Beach in the company of 6 passengers who were readily open to share comments about the level of comfort they experienced. The noise in the cabin was minimal, especially for those who travelled in the third row. Without being too picky, we considered it needs a bit of extra space right after the third row to accommodate more luggage. The gas mileage was not exceptional even though it ranks on top along with other vehicles of similar category due to the reduction of its engine from 6 cylinders to 4 (turbocharged) in order to achieve greater fuel consumption efficiency.
