The new paint makes the Mazda CX-9 look as if it’s machined from a solid piece of steel. It starts with a black primer coat that’s covered with a precisely sprayed layer of aluminum silver paint. The process is highly controlled to ensure the coat’s aluminum paint flakes fall into a pattern parallel with the Mazda3’s body panels. This gives the black and silver hues more luminosity and a liquid reflective quality. Finally, layers of gray-tinted and colorless clear coating are applied to top off our most premium color yet.
All your music, information and connections are just a touch away. The powerful but intuitive MAZDA CONNECT™ infotainment system5 provides a multitude of functions, all easily navigated with the Commander control on the console or via the full-color touch-screen.
Debuting in the 2016 Mazda CX-9, the SKYACTIV®-G 2.5-liter turbocharged engine features an innovative, new kind of turbocharger that nearly eliminates “turbo lag,” giving you power as soon as you hit the gas. This seamless responsiveness is an important part of Mazda’s Jinba Ittai philosophy, which strives for a oneness between car and driver.
Inside the CX-9 you’ll find abundant comfort, convenience and space. Its ample seating for seven and multitude of cargo options make it the perfect SUV for any adventure. And while a sense of indulgence and sophistication is felt throughout the cabin, we gave special attention to the most important seat—the driver’s.
Even with its sleek low roofline, the CX-9 still has ample space for passengers to stretch out in comfort. It offers more volume behind the first and second rows and more second- and third-row legroom than the Acura MDX or Toyota Highlander. Accessing the third row is nearly effortless, making it easy for kids to climb in. Just pull the release lever, then tilt and slide the second-row seat forward—all without needing to remove an installed child seat.
Mazda’s KODO: “Soul of Motion” design philosophy gives the CX-9 a look of composure and prestige—even at a standstill. A muscular stance, elongated hood and tapered roofline express an athletic elegance. The overall effect is one of purity, simplicity and beauty—an extraordinary achievement in a three-row SUV.
While typical engines generate most of their power in the upper RPM range, the CX-9 is carefully engineered to give you plenty of torque at lower RPMs, where you spend the majority of your drive time. You can tap into 310 ft-lb of torque at 2,000 RPM.
A focus on pure driving enjoyment sets the CX-9 apart in its class. Every aspect of this three-row SUV, from its body construction and engine technology to its chassis and transmission, is engineered with SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY to maximize driving dynamics while achieving up to a best-in-class in terms of fuel efficiency.
Available Adaptive Front-Lighting System is designed to help you see around corners at night. As you turn into a corner, the headlights pivot up to 15 degrees in the direction of your turn, improving visibility and allowing you to spot potential hazards ahead.
Available Lane-keep Assist13 adds to the warnings of the Lane Departure Warning system. When it senses a potential unintentional lane departure, it will perform minor steering corrections to help guide your vehicle back to the center of the lane.
