Pretty but slightly impractical sums up the 2020 Mazda CX-9

A 2.5-liter turbocharged four-banger delivers the goods, up to 250 horsepower and 320 pound-feet of torque.

Even the CX-9's grille is beautifully designed.

In top-shelf signature trim, this crossover's interior is better than what you get in some so-called luxury vehicles.

Depending on model, the cabin can also be dressed up with rosewood trim.

This exotic wood is also used on the door panels.

The CX-9's infotainment system is a glaring weakness.

Sized like a Toyota Highlander, Volkswagen Atlas or Ford Explorer, the CX-9 is a fairly large vehicle.
