The 2013 Mazda CX-9 differentiates itself from other members in the large-crossover gym by throwing some cardio and calisthenics in with the weights — and though you might not know it by looking, it's a more well-rounded athlete for the extra effort. Cars.com reviewer Jennifer Geiger says the CX-9 has worked hard to compete in its market segment, though it hasn't gotten the recognition it deserves for its sportier, more agile driving dynamics. Opinions will differ on the look and comfort of the interior, but the fuel economy and navigation system disappoint. Read the review and decide if the CX-9 has what it takes to stand up to its competitively priced peers.
