A three-row crossover, the 2013 Mazda CX-9 successfully manages to handle seven passengers without feeling bulky or looking matronly, says Cars.com Family reviewer Courtney Messenbaugh. This crossover is agile and its 3.7-liter V-6 engine easily handles highway on-ramps. Courtney says the third row isn't the most comfortable, but anyone can sit back there for a short trip.
