2016 Mazda CX-9 What's new for 2016? 
2016 Mazda CX-9

The Mazda CX-9 is all-new for 2016. Now in its second generation, Mazda's largest and priciest SUV receives a svelte new skin, plush interior, turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, and a host of safety and driving aids. The new, amenity-laden Signature trim could pass as a luxury SUV at a serious discount.

We were skeptical when Mazda claimed sportiness as a key attribute of its new crossover utilities, but they have surprised us by delivering on that promise. The CX-9, created specifically for North America, is the largest vehicle Mazda has ever brought to this market.

About Mazda CX-9

The CX-9 is Mazda's flagship SUV. All-new for 2016, this 3-row, 7-passenger crossover SUV starts around $32,500 with a stylish exterior, premium interior, and a new turbocharged engine that deftly splits the power/efficiency equation. The Mazda CX-9 has always stood out from rivals like the Honda Pilot, Toyota Highlander and Ford Explorer with its athletic driving manners, and this all-new version refines that dynamism. Thank Mazda's SkyActiv powertrain technology, which enables zippy performance and high fuel efficiency. The 2016 Mazda CX-9 completes the automaker's lineup of SkyActiv vehicles and signals another step forward into premium territory with the new Signature model. Like its rivals, the new CX-9 can be had with driving and safety aids like all-wheel drive (AWD), radar cruise control and automatic emergency braking.

2016 CX9 Sport

"I bought CX-9 a week ago and more than satisfied with it. Searched every model in 7 passenger category including minivan and came down to new Pilot, Sorrento, Q7, X5 and CX-9. As multiple reviewers mention CX-9's third rows not big enough for adults but all of the crossover SUVs in the 7/8 passenger category have same issue. If you want adults in third row, go for minivan or full size SUVs. Also, reviewers mention that CX9 has least cargo capacity but hey how many times one drive with third row up and fully loaded cargo. I picked CX-9 among all cars that I was searched for because its Value for money. I was considering touring model with tech package priced around $40k but got sport trim with heated/powered front seats as it has all features that important to me around $33k (dealership gave me $1900 off MSRP which is remarkable for vehicle this NEW). Some important features I'd really liked are brisk acceleration, quietness, LED head/tail lights, three zone climate control and ride quality. There are plenty soft touch material in the cabin where you rest your hand. Headlights are automatic and detect low light situation via a sensor on the windshield and turned ON by itself. I've a 6 month old and she is more than happy while riding in the CX9. Fuel mileage I got at 25.4 in combine driving so far but one of the highway trip showed 29 in the trip computer. HD radio is good and if you adjust Bass/Treble, sound system works great as CX9 is too quite. Definitely a Drivers car and recommended over other 7 passenger CUVs."

"My model: Grand Touring AWD Quick take: Pros(+) nice exterior/interior (albeit subjective) considerable low-end torque gives more than adequate acceleration with no discernable turbo lag great handling for the class (drives much smaller than its size) MUCH quieter than other Mazdas Heads Up Display (HUD) is pretty cool and safer since you don't have to look around as much at the dashboard or nav-display - even blindspot warnings appear in the HUD) safety package (for GT trim) includes blindspot monitoring, lane-departure warning/assist, adaptive headlights, auto-highbeam, automatic brake support, rear parking sensors, adaptive cruise control) Fuel-efficient for the class (21/27 - 23 combined EPA) CONS(-) Cargo area is probably amongst worst in class (71 cubic ft vs. Honda Pilot 100 cubic ft) AC does not seem as strong as before no ventilated seats, no heated rear seats, no panoramic roof, no handsfree auto liftgate Not a lot of extra power after 2-3k rpm (but honestly i haven't had to push the engine in those ranges) 6-way power drivers seat adjustment vs. 8-way (height) adjustment in competitors 3rd-row seats are probably only usable for small kids Towing rating is 3500# which is below competitors overall, the cons don't mean that much to me since i only have 2 kids, don't tow, and don't need a ton of cargo but for those who need those things, those might be deal-breakers. personally the steering/handling and interior quality and quiet but comfortable ride are what did me in. so overall i really like the car and think you get a lot of value for the money."

"I bought the CX-9 after driving the Pilot, Explorer and the Highlander. For me, I was looking for something practical for our family of 4, but still gave me high class features and finishes. As a previous reviewer mentioned, there are some helpful features missing ie. ventilated seats, hands-free rear gate, etc. But I feel for me the exquisite finishes of my Signature model are more important than those few things. It drives smooth, is super-quiet inside and the Machine Gray color option is super 'creamy'. You can't discern the difference between the 4-cylinder turbo and a 6 in a comparitive brand. Also, we got 27mpg on our recent trip, which for this size vehicle I feel is pretty good. I also can't help but notice the heads turn when they see our car (makes me feel like Matthew McConaughey in the Linclon commercials). And to think it was 10k less than some luxury equivalents, makes my wallet happy."
