The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
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. An exceptionally comfortable interior, great connectivity, and a 30-mpg turbo model succeed in elevating the 2014 Ford Edge above the crossover clutter.
