2019 Mazda CX-9: 'Journo for a day' with CarAdvice readers

As motoring journalists, our family and friends think we live the high life. Champagne, business class flights, fancy food, fast cars, and travelling the wonders of the world. Sorry to say, but... well, okay, that isn't an entirely inaccurate depiction. But, a lot goes on behind the scenes that many don't see...

2019 Mazda CX-9 review

Manufacturers have a tendency to go for a styling refresh when they execute a mid-life update. With the Mazda CX-9, the Japanese brand has added vital safety tech across the range in addition to subtle changes under the skin.

2019 Holden Acadia v Mazda CX-9: Family SUV comparison

Two very, very compelling options in the large seven-seat SUV segment. Which deserves your attention more? Sam Purcell puts that question to the test.

Journo for a day: CarAdvice readers experience the new CX-9

Right after the recent media launch event of the updated Mazda CX-9, Mazda gave us the opportunity to host a handful of CarAdvice readers in Tasmania to experience some of what we do as motoring journos.

2018 Mazda CX-9 Azami v Kia Carnival Platinum comparison

So you need to move seven-or-so people? There are more than a few options on the market today, from upgraded vans to more conventionally stylish choices like these two: the big but svelte Mazda CX-9 and the surprisingly tough-looking Kia Carnival. Depending on your order of priorities, one of these two could be the right pick for you...

2019 Mazda CX-9 review

See the full article here. As far as mid-life updates go, the 2019 Mazda CX-9 gets a fairly tame but genuinely important revision, which adds to its already impressive list of large SUV credentials. Believe it or not, this is already the second update for the ‘new’ CX-9, and the tech-heavy focus of the changes here aims at improving and enhancing the standard offering, in what I would call crucial areas...

Buyers of large family SUVs are spoilt for choice these days, and most options are loaded with gizmos. The Acadia and CX-9 are two options, but which one stacks up best?

Holden Acadia v Mazda CX-9 v Toyota Kluger comparison

Seven-seat SUVs are fast becoming Australia’s must-have family utility tool. Station wagons are passé, and the flexibility to add two extra passengers at a moment’s notice is a lure too strong to ignore. To put some of the more urban-friendly family haulers to the test, we’ve assembled the Toyota Kluger and Mazda CX-9 and aimed them directly at the face of the recently introduced Holden Acadia – Holden's new family hero arriving via American subsidiary, GMC...

2018 Kia Carnival v Mazda CX-9 v Volkswagen Multivan Kombi 70 comparison

MPV. SUV. LCV. Three acronyms. Three different styles of vehicle designed to shift large families. The Multi-Purpose Vehicle (MPV) camp is represented by the Kia Carnival that accounts for about half of all people-mover sales in Australia. Released in 2015 in third-generation form, the Korean eight-seater has been given an update for 2018...

Mazda CX-8: Petrol off the menu for Australia

With the CX-9 and CX-5 now available with a turbocharged petrol engine, Mazda has ruled out bringing a petrol version of its segment-straddling CX-8 to Australia. With power from the same 2.5-litre turbo and naturally-aspirated engines offered in the CX-5, the non-diesel CX-8 was revealed as part of a mid-life refresh in Japan...

2016 Mazda CX-9 Azami (FWD) review

Does this review sound familiar? About a year ago I published an owner review of this exact car – our 2016 Mazda CX-9 Azami. After living with the car for another year and having a few issues, I thought I would drag the pen and paper out again and rewrite the review. Well, not rewrite it...

2017 Mazda CX-9 Azami (AWD) review

Why this car? It was time to upgrade with a second child coming, and after about four years I felt the urge to replace our Honda CR-V MY2012 (2011) base model. The competition? Kia Sorento GT-Line. To me, the Sorento screams of value (about $10,000 cheaper) and the CX-9 is the last saving grace for a family man without affecting my credit rating too much...

2016 Mazda CX-9 Azami (FWD) review

After reading Will's owner review of his parents' X5, and listening to him on the CarAdvice Podcast, I was tempted to write up a little owner review. I'm 13 and have a strong interest in cars, but have been relatively quiet in the corner reading/watching the news, reviews and comments present on CarAdvice, YouTube and various magazines...

2016 Mazda CX-9 GT (FWD) Review

I purchased this car to support our growing family, having had 5 years of good service from our Ford Territory TS Diesel. The ability to 50:50 split the third row seats, over the Ford, seems a small feature, but a necessity for our family of 4 children. When looking for a replacement SUV we had the Mazda, Ford Everest (RWD), Kia Sorento and Mitsubishi Pajero Sports on our list...
