The Mazda CX-9 rolls into 2019 nearly unchanged.
But that's fine -- it's still one of our favorite midsize crossovers.
For starters, it's gorgeous.
With all-wheel-drive capability, it's great for all four seasons.
It doesn't have the most space inside, however, so don't plan on using that third row of seats too often.
Great steering and a taut chassis make the CX-9 really rewarding to drive.
The CX-9 lags behind some of the competition in terms of onboard tech.
It's not the most efficient SUV in its class, either.
The turbocharged I4 engine delivers a healthy punch.
There's plenty of luxury inside.
