Winning Full-Size CUV
At the 26th Texas Truck Rodeo in October, the 2017 Mazda CX-9 got yet another award to add to its growing list, taking home the highest honor among full-size CUVs. During the Texas Truck Rodeo, the judges evaluated over 70 vehicles in 17 different categories.

The Texas Auto Writers Association praised the CX-9 for its rewarding dynamics, family-friendliness, style, and efficiency.
Other Awards and Accolades
Just before the Texas Truck Rodeo, the 2016 Mazda CX-9 was named to the shortlist for the 2017 World Car of the Year nominees. This isn’t a first for Mazda. The 2016 MX-5 earned both the World Car Design of the Year and the World Car of the Year, both this year. MotorTrend has also praised the CX-9 for its ability to create a fun-to-drive vehicle that provides efficient transportation for the family. Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com praised the CX-9’s ability to maintain sleek styling and a rewarding driving experience in a larger vehicle.
