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.

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.

"I spent a little over two months in researching for a SUV as my family is growing and I didnt want to own a minivan. I drove Nissan Pathfinder, Toyota Highlander, Infiniti QX60 etc. and landed in a fully loaded version of Mazda CX-9 which is the signature trim. I was worried about the 225hp when the competitors ranged in 280-300hp, but everything changed when I test drove this vehicle. Excellent cornering and this one will make you feel like driving a huge sports car! Awesome cockpit, seating position w nappa leather, options like headsup display, Pedal kickdown switch, standard LED lights & 100 other reasons."

"Own a Subaru Outback and have never driven a Mazda. Knew I did not want a minivan. Have 2 kids and we haul many of the neighbors kids often or have additional passengers with grandparents etc. Did all the usual stuff as others - test drove Highlander, Ford and even Range Rover Sport (with 3rd row option) and Land Rover Discovery. I had given up since others like Highlander felt like minivans dressed as an SUV. Then I drove the CX9 - everything changed and I felt I was not compromising anymore. Looks better than ALL SUVs but one (still have a soft corner for Ranger Rover Sport looks) and the interior is wild with all the bells and whistles (HUD, ALL safety tech like Blind Spot Monitoring, Lane Departure Assist, City Brake Support, adaptive Cruise Control, keyless entry, seat memory in key fob and MUCH more) being charged in thousands as options in luxury vehicles like Land Rover! Feels incredibly well made, sophisticated and nested within the drivers seat. Drives and feels like a sedan within, incredibly responsive and has an incredible presence! Shhhh - Dont tell anyone this since I do like to be one of the few keepers of this best kept secret. Bought the 2017 GT trim, white 3 days ago. I cant stop thinking about it and I also take it the coffee shop, park it in front of me and keep staring at it! PS - Make sure to listen to the sound of the door closing PSS - iOS CarPlay coming in 2 months via a software upgrade one more S? PSSS - dont forget to negotiate hard. It will help."

"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."
