MAZDA CX-9 2016 - 2022

Generation Information

Body style: SUV

Segment: Crossover

Awarded with the Top Safety Pick +Award in the U.S. by the IIHS, the second generation of the biggest Mazda on the market was upscaled toward the premium segment.

After the split with Ford in December 2008, Mazda made its way in the automotive world with a new design and unrestrained by using someone else engines and transmissions. The Mazda 6 was the start of a new era and, with a new design and the new SkyActiv technology, it managed to bring impressive cars on the market.

The CX-9 was one of the vehicles that started from the Mazda 6 platform, but it was built as an SUV with a permanent all-wheel-drive. The front fascia resembled the compact-SUV CX-5 and, due to a longer wheelbase, it could accommodate up to seven passengers inside. The raked A-pillar was similar to a sporty station wagon than to an SUV.

Inside, the front seats were slimmer to allow bigger legroom for the middle row passengers. In the back, there was enough room for children. The 2016 Mazda CX-9 came with a seven or eight-inch Mazda Connect touchscreen infotainment system. It could also have been controlled with voice commands or a control knob. An additional, 4.6” TFT screen was installed between the gauges, for the driver.

Under the hood, the CX-9 featured a 2.5-liter turbocharged engine mated to a standard 6-speed automatic. It was offered as an all-wheel-drive only.
