2017 Mazda CX-9

We all want a luxury SUV but the fact of the matter is, not all of us can afford one. The 2017 Mazda CX-9 however, happens to offer the very thing you want but without the expensive price tag. Of course, nothing is really perfect and some things have to be sacrificed to get what you want most. Here’s what you should know about the 2017 Mazda CX-9.

Here’s the deal, the 2017 Mazda CX-9 is built on the same Kodo “Soul of Motion” platform as its CX-3 and CX-5 siblings. This gives the 2017 Mazda CX-9 a gorgeous look starting with its open-mouthed chrome grille along with LED grille accent lighting that makes it standout during the night. In addition, it also has expensive fog lights and LED headlights that basically give the front section a seductive look. According to Forbes, the 2017 Mazda CX-9 also has a strong shoulder that extends from the front to the rear section. Simply put, the 2017 Mazda CX-9 has an elegant look that satisfies any pair of eyes that look at it.

The interior of the 2017 Mazda CX-9 is just as attractive as the exterior. The 2017 Mazda CX-9 Signature in particular has all sorts of luxurious inputs from genuine rosewood that envelope the dashboard and other finishing touches that simply make the 2017 Mazda CX-9 scream luxury. As for the control panels, Mazda has kept things rather simple, which is probably a good move because it simply makes the luxuriousness stand out more. Reading about it may not seem very impressive but sitting in the cabin tells a different story.

The power aspect of the 2017 Mazda CX-9 would probably be something you will not be very excited with. According to report, the 2017 Mazda CX-9 is equipped with a new SKYACTIV-G 2.5-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine that is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission with Sport and manual-shift modes. This engine is capable of putting out 250 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. Compared to the other SUVs in the market, there are certainly a lot with more power but you will also have to pay a higher price for them.

The latest Mazda CX9 shows the smiley face is appearing everywhere.

Just a week after the launch of the new MX5, the latest Mazda to get the company’s new corporate “five-point” grille is the CX9.

Apart from the CX9 and MX5, the new face is spreading across the Mazda range.

It appears on the next-generation 3, due in local showrooms within days and the CX7 due later this year.

The 2010 CX9 is expected to hit local showrooms later this year, about the same time as the refreshed CX7.

Mazda is not spilling the beans on exactly what the changes are underneath, saying only that the car will get “added options and reinforced safety features”.

However, the seven-seater’s existing 3.7-litre V6 and six-speed automatic is expected to carry over.

Unlike the CX7 though, no diesel version is tipped to be added to the range.

CX9 buyers can however expect improvements in the V6’s fuel economy and a mildly updated cabin.

Visually, the new corporate grille is prominent, as are the revised foglights and lower air intake.

New larger exterior rear view mirrors and updated tail-lights complete the look.

Locally Mazda is one of the few brands that has had a good sales start this year even though its overall share has slipped almost 9 per cent.

At the launch of the new MX5 last week, Mazda Australia managing director, Doug Dickson, says he remains confident this year in the face of the 20 per cent market downturn.

He expects Mazda to continue to build its market share through the year despite overall sales volumes being down.

The arrival of the next-generation 3 hatch and sedan is expected to be a big driver.

Mazda, like other Japanese importers, has been under pricing pressure because of unfavorable exchange rates with the Japanese yen.
