Crossovers are overwhelmingly becoming drivers' top choice for transport in the United States, thanks to lowered gas prices and versatility. And perhaps the most versatile-and efficient and stylish and innovative and, well, all-around attractive-is the 2017 Mazda CX-9, beating out competitors like the 2017 Kia Sorento and 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe.


Eco-conscious drivers and those looking to save at the pump will want the CX-9 over the Santa Fe: The CX-9 manages up to 28 miles per gallon on the highway compared to the Santa Fe's 25.* How else does the CX-9 beat out the Santa Fe? The CX-9 features LED low/high beams compared to the Santa Fe's halogens. Navigation is available on all CX-9 trims but only on higher trims for the Santa Fe, and USB ports are standard on the CX-9, but not the Santa Fe.


The CX-9 also outclasses the Kia Sorento. Being one of the larger crossovers in the segment, the CX-9 offers ample interior space for families or cargo. In fact, cargo room is much more impressive than it is in the seven-passenger Sorento, with 14.4 cubic feet behind the third row. The standard Sorento engine generates just 185 horsepower while the CX-9's standard engine creates 250 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque.
