The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
Hyundai’s most expensive model may not quite be a Lexus, but it’s impressive in its own right. 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.
