After redesigning most of its lineup over the past few years, Mazda has turned its attention to the largest sport utility vehicle in its fleet, the seven-seat CX-9.
Introduced earlier this year as a 2016 model, the Mazda CX-9 is back for 2017 with some subtle improvements. Featuring more luxurious amenities, more technology, more interior space and a redesigned, more modern interior, the 2017 Mazda CX-9 also stands out when it comes to towing capacity and fuel economy.
When you take a quick look at the new midsize SUV, you can easily see the changes. The Mazda CX-9 has not grown that much in size, but its elongated wheelbase and reduced overhangs give it a sportier and more sophisticated silhouette. The roof line is lowered, and the windshield is more inclined, making it more aerodynamic.
Overall, the new CX-9 has a lot more personality and it will be very easy to recognize as a new model.
All the Space You Need in the 2017 Mazda CX-9 in Montreal
With all of its improvements, the 2017 Mazda CX-9 is even better for families. It can easily seat seven passengers, and even the occupants of the third row are offered plenty of leg-room.
The front occupants will like the CX-9’s comfortable seats, and a redesigned center console with more storage space. Within this center console is a new infotainment system that is even easier to use as before, and that offers even more features.
The dashboard also has redesigned dials, and a heads-up display is available on GT versions. As for the cargo space, it is easily accessible and offers more than enough space for the needs of most families.
The 2017 Mazda CX-9 and its Turbo Engine in Montreal
Under the hood of the 2017 Mazda CX-9 is a 2.5-liter turbocharged SKYACTIV-G engine that delivers 250 horsepower. Power has therefore increased, but it is mainly fuel consumption that improves (thanks to SKYACTIV). Mazda engineers have made sure that the CX-9’s turbo engine is free of any turbo lag thanks to a series of improvements that make the engine’s output more consistent in every driving situation.
Four versions of the 2017 Mazda CX-9 are available: the base GS version is only available with front-wheel drive. The GS-L version adds optional all-wheel drive, in addition to a sunroof and a heated steering wheel, while the GT offers navigation, 20-inch wheels and a high-quality Bose audio system. There is also a host of active safety technologies designed to prevent accidents and keep you safe.
Finally, a high-end version, called Signature, offers genuine rosewood trim, distinctive lighting and all the options of the previous versions.
