The 2019 Mazda CX-9 carries the brand’s passion for thrilling driving experiences and fulfills the expected duties of a large crossover. Bold lines, premium looks, and an upscale interior design speak to Mazda’s desire to be a considered among the near-luxury crowd à la Acura and INFINITI.
What's New for 2019
The Touring and above trims feature Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. A surround-view camera system, ventilated seats, and SiriusXM Travel Link are newly included features within the Touring Premium Package and above trims. Also, Mazda retuned and refined the suspension so the CX-9 can provide a quieter and smoother ride.
Choosing Your Mazda CX-9
Mazda’s biggest crossover is powered by a turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that was designed for easily accessible low rpm torque. Evidence of such turning lies with its relatively low peak 227 horsepower and very high 310 pound-feet of torque at just 2,000 rpm. Standard front-wheel drive achieves EPA estimates of 22 miles per gallon city, 28 mpg highway, and 24 combined. The all-wheel-drive system, which costs an extra $1,800, lowers these figures to 20/26/23 mpg (city/highway/combined). This available iActiv system is tied into the chassis systems to preemptively transfer power as needed.
There are four trims available: Sport, Touring, Grand Touring, and Signature.
The 2019 Mazda CX-9 brings a level of athleticism that's not typical in the large crossover field. The Touring trim with the optional package packs the CX-9 with active safety equipment, the latest in infotainment sources, and an immersive audio system.
