The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 Mazda CX-9 can carry seven in comfort, but it loves curves more than almost any other roomy crossover. With the 2011 Subaru Tribeca, first-class safety credentials and excellent all-weather handling ensure your precious ones are looked after, but if you need more than five seats, we suggest going with a bigger vehicle.
