With an all-new design for 2016, the Mazda CX-9 is the spacious choice for a third-row, seven passenger vehicle. It has a new “athletic stance” with bold lines that convey power and stability. Inside the Signature model, you’ll find authentic materials such as Nappa leather, genuine rosewood, and aluminum trim. It’s quiet and sophisticated.
The 2016 CX-9 will have the available option of Mazda’s i-ACTIV AWD system that we have seen on the Mazda CX-3 and CX-5. This innovative all-wheel-drive system can sense road conditions and predict potential changes in traction, then split torque between the front and rear wheels to help prevent slippage.

Under the hood there is a turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine delivering 310 lb.-ft of torque at 2,000 rpm. When fueled with premium octane gasoline, total horsepower reaches 250, while regular gasoline drops the horsepower rating down to 227. Mazda engineers decided to focus more on drivability and fuel economy than on power. That does not, however inhibit the performance of 2016 CX-9. The ride is steady and smooth and there is enough power readily available to navigate curvy, hilly terrain, while the suspension effectively manages to absorb and filter out bumps and ruts.
