Mazda might not be known for its larger CUVs, but the Mazda CX-9 deserves just as much praise and recognition as the Mazda CX-5, Mazda CX-30, and the Mazda CX-3. As the largest crossover currently built by Mazda, you might be interested to know how big it actually is. It’s no big rig, but it does have a lot of space for passengers and cargo. Continue reading to learn details about the size of the 2021 Mazda CX-9, and also consider visiting Maple Shade Mazda in Maple Shade, New Jersey to see it in person!
What are the Dimensions of the 2021 Mazda CX-9?
From front to back, the 2021 Mazda CX-9 measures 199.4 inches long. It’s so close to an even 200 inches that it might be frustrating when you’re looking at the number, but the size of the vehicle itself feels balanced the way it is, and that is what is most important.
Not including wheel arch moldings, the crossover measures 77.2 inches wide. For the most precise measurement, the wheel arch moldings do increase the width to 77.5 inches.
The car stays just a tad below 70 inches tall, even when counting the shark fin antenna. That’s 69 inches at its highest point, but a standard height of 67.6 when you measure to the roof.
Does the 2021 Mazda CX-9 Have Good Ground Clearance?
Off-roading isn’t exactly what the CX-9 was designed for, but the body of the crossover does stand 8.8 inches off the ground naturally. There are two different wheel sizes for the CX-9 as well. The Sport and Touring trims of the vehicle have 18 x 8-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, but the Carbon Edition, Grand Touring, and Signature trims all use 20 x 8.5-inch aluminum alloy wheels instead.
How Much Cargo Space does the 2021 Mazda CX-9 Have?
Since the 2021 Mazda CX-9 has three rows of seating, cargo space is small at first but increases exponentially when you fold the seats down. With a full load of passengers, you have 14.4 cubic feet of cargo space. Folding down the back row opens up more space, giving you 38.2 cubic feet instead. When you really need to carry as much cargo as possible, fold both the second and third rows down to have access to 71.2 cubic feet of room. These numbers are consistent across all five trims, too.
