Best large SUV/crossover
2007-11 Mazda CX-9
We're not going to lie to you: This is basically a Ford Edge in costume.
Though it got a facelift this year, the versions you'll see on used car lots are built on the same platform as the Edge, the old Lincoln MKZ and the now-deceased Mercury Milan. That said, it's not a bad little ride. With a 3.5-liter V6 in the 2007 and a 3.7L version each year thereafter, the CX-9 cranks out 274 horsepower and is packed with little throw-ins including electronic stability control, traction control, roll stability control, front and side impact airbags, and three row-side curtain airbags. Some are even stocked with DVD navigation systems, handsfree Bluetooth phone links, backup cameras, and Bose 5.1 surround sound rear entertainment system.
