The Mazda CX-9, Mazda’s popular 3-row 7-seater SUV, is the purest example of how possible it is—even easy—to combine utility with style and driving fun. The CX-9 has been around for years, and it has won a smorgasbord of awards for everything from its fantastic safety to its innovative engine.
The CX-9 was named a Top Safety Pick+ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety in 2016 and 2017, earning good ratings in all crash tests and a superior rating for its front crash prevention technology. Both Kelley Blue Book and Motor Trend gave the 2016 CX-9 stunning reviews, saying Mazda infused the CX-9 with the idea that “you should be able to enjoy your time behind the wheel without sacrificing practicality,” and that the CX-9 continues Mazda’s trend of “affordable, mainstream vehicles that feel anything but mainstream.”
Motor Trend even made the CX-9 an SUV of the Year finalist, years after the 2008 CX-9 took the award home. The 2016 CX-9 was named to Car and Driver’s 10 Best Trucks and SUVs, and the 2017 model won the AutoGuide.com Reader’s Choice Utility Vehicle of the Year award.
Mazda was also voted US News & World Report’s Best Car Brand in 2016, so if you’re looking for a new car or SUV, we hope you’ll check out our amazing selection at Wantagh Mazda!
