The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Chrysler Pacifica isn't long for this world, but still offers good interior seating and flexibility. The 2008 Mazda CX-9 may be the best-driving full-size seven-passenger crossover out there. It is certainly one of the best looking and appointed.
