With seating for seven and a smidge of zoom-zoom, the 2008 Mazda CX-9 is an attractive alternative for prospective minivan buyers. The 2008 CX-9 was voted North American Truck of the year, an award that's voted on by 45 automotive journaists at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The CX-9 was also Motor trend's 2008 Sport Utility of the Year. Clearly, the CX-9 has made a positve impression on automotive experts.  The CX-9 is also the first full-size SUV to ride on a car-based platform. The car-based mechanics help the CX-9 have one of the best fuel economy ratings in the class.  A full-size crossover SUV, the all-new CX-9 replaces the Mazda MPV minivan.

  • "Mazda's showing some chutzpah in calling the CX-9 the Zoom-Zoom with Extra Room, but is it a terrific new crossover? Yes-yes," -- Motor Trend.
  • "A superb crossover and one of the most fun-to-drive examples in its class. The quiet and comfortable cabin is a nice place to be, and its exterior styling is pleasing to the eye." -- AutWeek
  •  +"Demerits are few," -- Car and Driver
  • "The CX-9 checks in at the high end of their price range, costing more than other models with more features, more room and better ride and handling." -- The Detroit Free Press
