Ranked as the #3 Affordable Compact SUV by U.S. News & World Report, the 2016 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring adds a little spice to the world of crossovers. Boasting a high fuel economy and a dynamic experience on the streets, this five-passenger transport is ideal for small families on a budget.
Under the hood rests a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 184 hp and 185 lb-ft of torque. Equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive, the CX-5 gets an impressive 26 mpg combined (24 city/30 highway). In track tests conducted by experts at Edmunds, it went from zero to 60 mph in 8.0 seconds flat. That’s quite respectable for its class.
The top-of-the-line Grand Touring trim level includes 19-inch wheels and rain-sensing wipers that come in handy during inclement weather. The cabin is draped in leather upholstery and has heated seats that will keep you warm and toasty during the winter. If you are planning a holiday road trip, you can utilize the navigation system to find the fastest route.
