Since the crash tests came out very favorable on the CX-3, I am guessing that the 9 is in the same class now (hopefully).Looks great! Did they do any changes to help with the frontal offset crash results? That was the big Achilles' Heel on the prior models where it hasn't done so well in the NHTSA tests. One of my friends has wanted to trade in her old Saturn Vue and get a CX-9 because they have a large dog in the family. The crash test results up through the 2015 models at least have turned her off on it, though.
I would hope so, but it's far from being a done deal. It may look very similar and still yield completely different results. CX-9 is a significantly heavier vehicle which could have a drastic impact on the results because of the increased kinetic energy put into the crash.Since the crash tests came out very favorable on the CX-3, I am guessing that the 9 is in the same class now (hopefully).
