Exterior

The 2019 Mazda CX-9 has so many good things to offer. When it comes to the exterior design, the first thing that comes to mind is its amazing styling. Based on the famous KODO design language, this crossover is one of the best-looking vehicles in the class.

Things get even better once you start the ride. The SkyActive platform ensures amazing driving experience. We are pretty sure that there is no other mid-size crossover that can match its athleticism. It doesn’t feel like an SUV on curvy roads as well. Also, the acceleration is pretty amazing, despite the fact that 2019 Mazda CX-9 doesn’t deliver any spectacular amount of power at all.

Interior

The 2019 Mazda CX-9 is equally stylish on the inside. The Mazda’s familiar steering wheel feels perfect in hands, while the dashboard design is amazing. It is rather simplistic and delivers tons of elegance. The overall quality is at a high level of quality, while the list of standard features, especially in terms of safety is pretty amazing.

On the other side, it isn’t the most practical model in the class. In this aspect, it definitely can’t compete with models like Honda Pilot and Subaru Ascent. The cargo area is one of the smallest in the class. That’s the price you have to pay for splendid aesthetics.

Engine

Under the hood of 2019 Mazda CX-9, you will find a familiar 2.5-liter turbo inline-four engine, which features a max output of around 227 horsepower with regular fuel. If you use premium octane gasoline, max output goes up to 250 horsepower.
