Mazda CX-9 was named "Best Large Utility" by MotorWeek, a stalwart in automotive television content, as a part of the 2017 MotorWeek Drivers' Choice Awards.

The editorial team at MotorWeek evaluated the vehicles during its annual Drivers' Choice Awards from the "buyer's point of view," and the list of winners represent what the television program identifies as a practical guide for car shopping. After evaluating more than 150 vehicles every year, the winners are chosen based on what buyers value the most: driving performance, technology, practicality and dollar value.

Mazda CX-9 checks all the boxes. It sets itself apart from most three-row SUVs with KODO-Soul of Motion design and a sophisticated interior to match. In addition to its sleek design, CX-9 delivers in the performance department, with its SKYACTIV-D 2.5T turbocharged engine. CX-9 proves that a large utility vehicle can still have good looks and dynamic performance.
