    Would like to hear and share feedback on the new CX-9. Had mine for 3 weeks now but have only been driving it for 2 weeks while waiting for the OR/CR. My first impressions are: it's doesn't feel like you are driving a big car, the car has a lot of torque!, more than what I expected, because of this it picks up quickly (lakas ng hatak), very smooth driving experience, the speakers are great, complimented by the cladding which shuts out noise. Lots of useful safety features like lane departure, blind spot, speed sensing locks, rear cross traffic alert, and proximity sensors. I have to get used to the size. It is long and wide, not as wide as the traiblazer or the explorer, but longer. Headlights are bright and clear. Brighter and clearer than the 6. I wish they had smart city braking installed on the PH version but not sure how that would work with our traffic. I am glad it does not have i-stop! Side view mirrors are NOT autofold as advertised on the brochure but only power-fold.

    Fuel consumption so far, per the vehicle's trip meter is between 4.3 - 4.7 Km/liter. That includes a 2 hour trip from the house to SM that covered about 9 Kms. Maybe not representative of the car's efficiency, perhaps over time and with better traffic, I can clock 5-6 Km/liter.

    Do the average Full Tank-Full Tank Method. FC in still traffic can be very bad for just about any car.....Burning fuel with no distance ran can theoretically read 0km/l.2018 cx-9

    So they installed the BSM on new releases. Mine doesn't come with BSM.

    Have you noticed the front proximity sensors don't activate without putting the car in reverse first?

    It has Blind Spot Monitoring and along with it Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA). I thought RCTA was not included as our version does not have Smart City Braking, which is standard on all 2018 variants. I was surprised when the vehicle generated alerts as I was backing out of a parking slot to let me know a car was approaching from my left at 90 degrees. The heads up display is cool too as the alerts can be easily seen.

    Hopefully it can hit an average of 10 km/L, but it already exceeded my expectations in terms of fuel economy. I was only expecting approx. 7-8 km/L for a vehicle this size.
