Mazda introduced its all new 2016 Mazda CX-9, a fuel efficient midsize crossover utility vehicle with a SKYACTIV®1-G 2.5-liter turbocharged engine. Its power plant features new technology that nearly eliminates turbo lag—giving drivers power as soon as they hit the gas. And there’s an impressive all wheel drive option to match.
The 2016 Mazda CX-9 is carefully engineered to provide plenty of torque at lower RPMs because, well, that’s where drivers spend the majority of their time. Tap into 310 ft-lb of torque at 2,000 RPMs, substantially more than the Infiniti QX60 and Acura MDX. A focus on pure driving enjoyment sets the CX-9 apart in its class.
“Every aspect of this three-row SUV, from its body construction and engine technology to its chassis and transmission, is engineered with SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY1 to maximize driving dynamics while achieving outstanding highway MPG,” said Mazda.
Praise of the new model extends past what’s under the hood to include a fresh, luxurious body styling. “KODO: ‘Soul of Motion’ design philosophy gives the 2016 Mazda CX-9 a look of composure and prestige—even at a standstill. A muscular stance, elongated hood and tapered roofline express an athletic elegance. The overall effect is one of purity, simplicity and beauty—an extraordinary achievement in a three-row SUV,” continued Mazda.
2016 Mazda CX-9: Crafted with the Driver in Mind
The 2016 Mazda CX-9 is thoughtfully crafted with the driver in mind, featuring diminished engine vibrations and sound insulation. This reduces wind noise to ensure a less distracting and more relaxing experience. Enjoy abundant space, comfortable seating and multiple cargo options all with a touch of luxury, elegance and sophistication throughout the cabin. In the words of Mazda, “even the details have details.”
Despite its appealing aesthetic upgrades, Motor Trend teases consumers that much of the magic in the 2016 Mazda CX-9’s 2.5-liter turbo-four engine happens in the exhaust manifold, tweaks that have effectively boosted overall efficiency and broadened the torque curve. One thing is for sure, a test drive is in the near future.
