Review: 2019 Mazda CX-9 Signature AWD – Part 1

About two years ago I reviewed the Mazda CX-9 which is Mazda’s entry into the three row SUV space. It impressed me in terms of the quality of the interior, the stunning exterior looks, and the fuel economy which was amazing for such a big vehicle.

Now I’m back with the 2019 version in the Signature trim:

The looks are stated earlier are simply stunning. It’s easily the best looking vehicle that Mazda has made. This despite the fact that this is a two year old design. Clearly it is a design that is going to age well. But Mazda did make a change on the outside. The mirrors are power folding mirrors which is a feature that did not exist in the one that I drove 2 years ago. They unfold when you unlock the CX-9 and fold up when you lock the CX-9. That’s a nice touch. But beyond that, any changes that Mazda has made to the CX-9 are going to be elsewhere and I will do my best to highlight them as I go through this review.

My review of the CX-9 is made up of five parts:

  • Exterior
  • Engine, transmission, handling, fuel economy, and driving comfort
  • Interior
  • Technology in the vehicle
  • Wrap up

Tomorrow, I’ll be covering the fact that this seven passenger SUV comes with a 2.5l turbocharged 4 cylinder engine as opposed to a V6. That impressed me the last time I drove this vehicle, and I was even more impressed this time around. Tune in tomorrow to find out why.
