The new 2013 Mazda CX-9 is a sporty family hauler that seats 7 and zips around corners like it has a healthy dose of of Mazda Miata DNA.Gone is the smiley face now replaced by a much more serious and more grown-up new front fascia. The car now looks almost mean and certainly determined as it eats up the corners of your favorite twisty road. In this exclusive TFLcar drive and review we not only see how fast the new 2013 Mazda CX-9 will go from 0-60 MPH but we also check out how the car serves as a family hauler.

What I have to say about the 2013 Mazda CX-5: Really great car, but there is many more competitors that have many more features. Very Good Gas Mileage too, one of the best. That’s where that skyactiv technology comes in. You can either choose FWD or AWD I would go with AWD because it still hit’s over 30 MPG. But overall great car Mazda, I hope to see more of those very fuel efficient cars from them.
