It is bigger inside than it shows on the outside.

I am in love with my Mazda cx-9. I have 3 kids ages 1, 2 and 6. It makes being a mom so much easier. Our third row seating is amazing and easily folds down for more carry on space. Traveling is so comfortable and stress free in this car. The kids and I love the sunroof. I can honestly say there is nothing I do not like about this car. It has seat warmers and easy to use seat controls. Lets you program the perfect seat position weather your big, small, short or tall. I am 5'2 my partner is 6' and we both feel comfortable driving in my car. If you are a mom who does it all this is the perfect fit for a family of 5 or less.

It's the same size as a van but standard hinged doors makes entering and exiting challenging.

My CX9 is a Crossover SUV with four doors plus a hatchback. It has heated seats, power windows and a powered hatchback door. The car performs well, but sometimes downshifts hard from 4th to 3rd and no one can find an issue. The power close feature on the hatchback doesn't always work and again the dealership cannot find an issue why. The four regular car doors are very large and heavy which makes getting in and out of the vehicle difficult if another car parks too close. They also tend to dent other nearby cars too easily.

Best SUV ever. I will not buy another make ever.

I love my Mazda cx 9! I was nervous at first buying an SUV I only drove sedans before the cx 9. I am so happy I went with the cx 9 versus the other SUVs I was looking at. I still feel like I am in a sedan, it's not as high up as other SUVs. The height is great as well because it is easy for my grandmother to get in and out of the SUV. I like the way the cx 9 handles around curves and the pickup is great as well. I do not like how it downshifts down hills. The sound system is great as well.
