Mazda’s available predictive i-ACTIV AWD® all-wheel-drive system monitors changing road conditions and adjusts power delivery to help give you optimal traction before your wheels can slip. Even when the weather’s perfect, i-ACTIV AWD® helps stabilize and improve the CX-9’s overall road grip by sensing changes in steering effort and throttle input to distribute torque more evenly.
When Driving Matters, excellent fuel efficiency should never come at the cost of performance. So, of course, our driving-obsessed engineers found a way to enhance both. It’s called SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY. Every aspect of the vehicle is engineered to maximize driving dynamics and efficiency: from body construction and engine technology, to the chassis and transmission. Offering impressive EPA-estimated MPG ratings. Without compromising performance. SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY is just one of the ways Mazda makes driving better.
Let in the starlight, not the wind noise. Mazda’s durable UV-and scratch-resistant smoked acrylic Moonroof Wind Deflector helps make your trip a quieter and more open-air experience.
Shed extra light on the road and help make your drive easier in hazardous conditions such as fog, rain, snow or dust with long-lasting, cool-running, energy-efficient LED Fog Lights.
Even with its sleek low roofline, the CX-9 still offers more volume and more second- and third-row legroom than the Acura MDX or Toyota Highlander. Accessing the third row is simple, making it easy for kids to climb in—all without needing to remove an installed child seat.
Numerous hidden storage compartments in the console, center arm rests and glove box, along with seatback pockets and door-panel bins, keep essential items close, but out of the way.
While sophistication is felt throughout the cabin, we gave special attention to the most important seat—the driver’s. By positioning the shifter and console slightly higher than in the previous-generation CX-9, we help the driver experience a greater sense of connection and control.
For the finest upholstery ever used in a Mazda, we chose a material that this car and its drivers deserve—Nappa leather. Supple in feel and auburn hued, it’s evocative of bespoke horse saddles, a subtle nod to Mazda’s Jinba Ittai “horse and rider as one” driving philosophy.
Mazda warrants that new Mazda cars and trucks will be free of defects with normal use and prescribed maintenance for 36 months or 36,000 miles, whichever comes first. Ordinary maintenance items or adjustments, parts subject to normal wear and replacement and certain other items are excluded. This transferable "limited warranty" is included on all new Mazda vehicles sold and serviced in the United States.
Available Mazda Radar Cruise Control judges the relative speed and distance to the car ahead and works within a set speed range to help maintain a safe following distance. Warnings alert you if your vehicle is fast approaching the one ahead.
When traveling at speeds between about 2 and 18 mph, available Smart City Brake Support helps detect objects ahead and prepares your vehicle by adjusting brake pads closer to the disc. If no action is taken, the brakes are automatically applied.
