About this Episode

Reaching above its station as an affordable three-row SUV, the 2019 Mazda CX-9 offers swanky digs and a smooth ride - at least, according to Sami, who can't get enough. Benjamin's crossover-of-the-week is a 2019 Subaru Outback, a great family hauler that has lost its quirkiness but still delivers the goods. The comparison between the two sport-utility vehicles triggers a deep conversation about what vehicles need to be interesting to drive and which ones don't, just before Sami drops the bomb that the 2019 Nissan Kicks he drove weighs only a couple hundred pounds more than a modern Miata. Finally, Benjamin laments the passing of Ford's passenger cars once more upon hearing news that there's a four-door Mustang in the works.
