Sophisticated and luxurious, the 3.7-litre unleaded engine has respectable power at 204kw with 366Nm of torque which works very well with the 6 speed sports auto gearbox giving a surprisingly brisk acceleration and overall performance. Handling is particularly very good due to the AWD system. Fuel economy is quoted as 13L/100km providing you resist the temptation to flatten the foot to the floor to experience the sheer fun of it. The CX-9 has so much going for it with great styling, space, comfort, luxury, dynamic handling and practicality to name a few. Treat your family and treat yourself.
