It's comfortable, practical, and functional. Good for families.

I like that it's large enough to carry my family and all of our gear, but not so big that it feels like I'm driving a tank. Some of the tech is a little too extra for me and dealing with all the different settings can be kind of a pain, but #firstworldproblems amirite? The display glitched on me today for the first time, which sucks.

A great quality car for a quality price, a smooth ride with safe doors.

I really love how smooth the ride is. However I am very upset that it does not have Apple carplay because it would’ve be a feature I would use a lot. I am very happy with the quality of the interior. It has great space. It also has a sport look that similar to the Jaguar f-pace. Great for a first car because is safe and is spacious.

Family SUV that drives like a compact car

The CX-9 is fun to drive, and really drives more like a small car than an SUV! I can comfortably fit my family of 5 into it (and the third row is easily accessible, even with car seats installed in the second row). The trunk is a little small when the third row is in use, but that's to be expected with an SUV of this size.
