When the Mazda CX-9 made its debut in 2006, it was an epiphany: A midsize, three-row crossover SUV with exceptional handling character. Providing controlled comfort in a versatile space, the Mazda CX-9 defied the convention and cast shadows at it's cumbersome competitors.Despite being a large vehicle, the CX-9 quickly captivated the automotive industry, winning numerous accolades for handling and design.
As technology has developed throughout Mazda's product line, it has become time to infuse the 7 Passenger SUV with tomorrows technology.
The Mazda CX-9 is the Grandest expression of KODO—Soul of Motion
design, the high-end model of Mazda's new-generation lineup, The ALL NEW Mazda CX-9. The Mazda CX-9 is Bold with crisp lines that flow from nose to the rear. Its interior is breathtaking, with available Nappa leather, real rosewood and aluminum. The focus was on offering a rich, quality experience
In the new Mazda CX-9 you'll find available lane departure, smart city brake support, blind spot and cross traffic monitorig, voice activated navigation/audio/bluetooth, Autopmatic High/low headlamps, adaptive LED headlamps, and much more.
With the All New Mazda CX-9, engineers sought to accentuate all ready impressive driving dynamics befitting of a Mazda—agile handling, tight steering and a responsive powertrain. To do this, they employed SKYACTIV Technology to keep CX-9's structure light, yet rigid. Then They developed a new turbocharged SKYACTIV-G 2.5T engine simular to that of the Porsche Cayenne. This innovative powerplant delivers instant throttle response, 250 horsepower with 310 ftlp of class-leading torque and an estimated around 20-percent increase in fuel- efficiency, based on initial estimates of U.S. EPA testing cycles, making the All New Mazda CX-9 among the most efficient vehicles in its class.
Mazda's Dynamic Pressure Turbo, the world's first turbocharger with the ability to vary the degree of exhaust pulsation depending on engine speed. The system routes engine exhaust to the turbocharger's turbine through smaller ports at low rpm. It works similarly to when one might place his or her thumb on a garden hose, creating a strong amount of pressure through a smaller outlet. This allows the turbocharger to spool up quickly, creating instant boost—up to 1.2 bar (17.4 psi) of pressure. When the engine is in the heart of its rev range, it opens up secondary valves, allowing for greater amounts of exhaust gas to pass through the turbocharger. The system is complemented by the 2.5-liter engine that already benefits from more torque at atmospheric pressure than a comparable 2.0-liter by virtue of its size.
Power gets to the road via a six-speed automatic gearbox, and the CUV is available with the company's i-Activ all-wheel-drive system. Customers can also order an array of high tech features including: adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist, blind spot monitoring, and more
Autoblog's BRANDON TURKUS say's: I actually drove a prototype of this before the show, and while I can't say much more than that right now, know that in this voting, I awarded the CX-9 the maximum number of points. It's extremely handsome, both inside and out, and the new 2.5-liter, turbocharged Skyactiv engine is a very intriguing piece.
Autoblog's STEVEN EWING say's: Mazda is so incredibly on fire these days, and the CX-9 is the last piece of this puzzle. There isn't a single Mazda I wouldn't buy; sign me up for a CX-9 over everything else in the three-row crossover class
and Autoblog's DAVID GLUCKMAN say's: Crossovers are, for the most part, silly. Mazda makes the good ones, though, in part because they're the most carlike. Even long into its first generation, the CX-9 was still nice to drive, and since Mazda has been on a roll lately I'm thinking this new model will be pretty great too. Bonus: I bet we're looking at the next Mazdaspeed3 engine.
