Murano vs Mazda CX9 2017

Question re the 2017 Murano and 2017 CX9 is wrt sporty handling characteristics, mainly at highway speeds (e.g., twisty roads). Most reviewers praise the CX9's German-like road handling compared to competitor 3-row-seat SUVs. Most reviewers also say that the current version of the Murano is more cruiser than sporty (compared to earlier Muranos and other two row SUVs). I've not seen a direct road test comparing the Murano and the CX9. Have any of you driven both vehicles? Since the Murano is 300+ lbs lighter than the CX9 I'd except its road handling to be at least a good as the CX9. Thoughts?

We will await your comparison after you have test driven both. In my books you don't buy a full size suv for highway speed twisties unless you have a fondness for leaving the road unintentionally. Even more so when the only humans that fit in the third row of these things are kids.
