The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
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. The Toyota Venza gives up all SUV styling pretenses in favor of big-hatchback utility and a truly carlike atmosphere.
