The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Chevy Traverse may look a little sedate, but it offers plenty of comfort and practicality for the whole family. The 2015 Mazda CX-9 isn't as efficient as Mazda's latest offerings, but it manages to put the same kind of smile on the driver's face as the brand's smaller offerings.
