Cabin storage is good although not stellar. The forward center console bin is great for concealing items but features a hard, slippery floor, so that they slide around noisily. The console bin at your elbow is just a decent size, and you can find modest door pockets in the leading and rear that are great for small water bottles only.
The 2020 Mazda Cx 9 includes a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles allow it to be easy to expand the space. Loading groceries or luggage is helped out by the wide opening and a low liftover height.
