Join automotive expert Lauren Fix, The Car Coach®, as she test drives the all-new 2016 Mazda CX-9 midsize, three-row crossover SUV.

 

Offering a premium experience, fun-to-drive handling dynamics and bold KODO—Soul of Motion design, Mazda CX-9 represents a compelling offering in its class with a starting MSRP from $31,520.

 

In Sport trim, CX-9 comes standard with LED headlights and taillights—similar to Mazda’s 2016 MX-5 Miata roadster.  It also has fabric seating surfaces, an electronic parking brake, 18-inch wheels, rear backup camera, trailer stability assist, MAZDA CONNECTTM infotainment with Commander control and a seven-inch color display. Optionally available is the Sport Package, which adds a power driver’s seat, heated front seats and heated door mirrors.

 

Mazda CX-9 Touring adds an auto-dimming rearview mirror, Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, HomeLink garage door openers, black- or sand-colored leather seating surfaces, Mazda Advanced Keyless Entry System, a power liftgate, power front seats, and an eight-inch MAZDA CONNECTTM touchscreen display. Additionally, customers can opt for the Touring Premium Package, which further includes automatic on/off headlights, LED fog lights, navigation, a premium 12-speaker BOSE® audio system, rain-sensing wipers, rear backup sensors, second-row retractable sunshades, SiriusXM satellite radio, automatic Smart City Brake Support and a sunroof.

 

Further heightening the CX-9 lineup is the Grand Touring model, which builds upon the Sport and Touring trim levels with Adaptive Front-lighting System, 20-inch wheels, aluminum interior trim, Mazda’s first Active Driving Display that projects instrument and navigation information onto the windshield, high-beam control, lane-departure warning, lane-keep assist, Mazda Radar Cruise Control with Smart Brake Support, roof rails and memory settings on the driver’s seat.
