Price change: $200 higher on Sport; $250 more on Touring and Grand Touring

On sale: Early October

Which you should buy, 2013 or 2014? 2013. The prices increases are modest on the 2014s, but so are the changes. The better deals should be on 2013 models.

Mazda refreshed its three-row CX-9 crossover for 2013 with new front and rear styling and a new dashboard design that includes a standard 5.8-inch touch screen. The changes are more modest for 2014: Rear cross-traffic alert is a new option, and the Grand Touring model has new 20-inch wheels.

Despite the appearance changes for 2013, the CX-9 is one of the older three-row crossovers on the market, with a design that dates to the 2007 model year. It's a stylish crossover that is more enjoyable to drive than many competitors, but the CX-9 faces stiff competition from newer models that offer more interior space and better fuel economy.

Dealers had about 3,500 CX-9s in Cars.com's national inventory at publish time, and more than two-thirds were 2013 models. The 2013s are where you will find the better deals, including rebates up to $3,000 or zero percent financing for 60 months.
