The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Jeep Cherokee plants a foot in both the crossover and SUV world--and only flubs the styling. The 2014 Mazda CX-9 is one of the most engaging large crossovers from the driver's seat; but the CX-9 is no standout for efficiency, like the brand's newer cars.
