    It shouldn't be noticeably off, especially without side by side to compare.

    I think I just bought the most anti motors car possible

    It's
    A suv
    4 pot
    7 seats
    not German
    A lease deal (and not a particularly amazing one either but that's the market right now)

    Positive points I like the looks, it drives pretty well for a big car and has plenty of gadge on board. Also only have it for two year deal

    Gadge sounds like a terrible slang word for something. :p

    I like it, for an SUV. Recent Mazdas are pretty stylish.

    Yeah, i'm a fan of the looks. They seem to be doing pretty well recently in the SUV market as the CX-3 and CX-5 are really popular over here in the UK. I didn't even know they went to a CX-9!

    I agree. Personally I think the Mazda 6 is one of the best looking saloons in the market, but I don't see them around that often.

    It’s a shame the CX-9 isn’t available on the European market. It’s quite a nice looking car.

    I haven't had any issues with it, on comfort setting it's nice enough to waft about and in sport it just firms it all up a bit when you're having a spirited drive - due to the wheels and run flats avoiding pot holes is a must in any mode but the ride isn't overly harsh at all. I think it's far more comfortable than my dads Audi A3 on 17" wheels with non run flats.

    Not available in the UK and even if it was Mazda would probably fit one of their gutless engines i it..

    I looked at them as a sensible daily (hi fox) but they only seem to have 4 cylinder diesels? No thanks.

    The Fiance and I done a wee northish tour of Scotland last week! Glorious weather too, which helped!

    The M140i was great fun! Comfort when needed and a blast of speed when late for things!

    Needed a good wash when home, wheels off, etc.

    270S SV with lowered floors. Went brand new in the end as it’s a great spec and I thought I’d get it nice and quickly but alas still jumping through hoops trying to get it registered 3 weeks later..

    Will get some pics up if I ever get my hands on it!

    That looks fantastic. I'd love to drive one of these or a BRZ.

    The new one is out next year. 2.4 230ish BHP N/A and 0-60 in six seconds. Going to pretty epic I reckon.

    It's so annoying; that engine upgrade fixes the common complaint about the old model. And that's the only problem I had with it...but I think the old model looks better!
    If it looked as good as the current gen, going by the engine upgrade, I'm almost certain it would be my next car (if not much of an original choice). Time will tell if I can get over the looks before they come out :)

    Quite an affordable and obtainable dream. Save up and get one. Highly recommend it :D. They cost a fair bit to maintain, but they don't really go down in value.
