First Look At The All-New 2016 Mazda CX-9


Mazda has done it again. At the forefront of engineering some of the most fun-to-drive cars you’ll find anywhere, Mazda boldly unleashes the all-new, 3-row 2016 CX-9 SUV. Your preferred Mazda new car dealer in St. Louis, Lou Fusz Mazda, takes the wraps off this remarkable new driving machine.

Sleek, Slimmer CX-9 Exterior

Mazda designed this smart-looking, 7-passenger SUV with the characteristics of a sports car wrapped around a sleek, modern body that matches the CX-9’s sporty attitude. It epitomizes Mazda’s exclusive “KODO: Soul of Motion” design philosophy that artfully marries the forces of nature with the innovation of engineering that is pure, simple, and athletically elegant.


The reimagined front end features a bold grille four horizontal bars with the Mazda emblem front and center. The stance is wide with twin projector-beam headlights flanking the purposeful grill. The roofline arcs gracefully, flowing effortlessly into the rear deck. The CX-9’s smooth, sleek flanks feature large wheel wells that draw attention to the SUV’s available sport alloy wheels.

A Reimagined CX9 Cabin

The CX-9’s ample interior is remarkably re-engineered emphasizing that this is far more than an SUV. The CX-9’s cabin is both driver-focused and indulgently luxurious. The three-spoke sports steering wheel, shifter, and console are purposefully arranged to afford the driver with the ultimate in convenience and ease of use.

A higher level of craftsmanship greets driver and passengers, who can stretch out and enjoy the ride in the CX-9’s spacious and inviting interior with more 2nd and 3rd-row space than the Acura MDX or Toyota Highlander. Indeed, Car And Driver Magazine praises the CX-9’s interior, say that “The cabin’s clean design imparts a rich, premium feel.”


We’re not at all surprised at this unabashed accolade. The Mazda CX-9 Signature trim level features supple Nappa leather, artisan-crafted genuine rosewood, and sculpted aluminum accents, giving it a sophisticated ambiance befitting luxury cars costing thousands more.

Cargo capacity is ample and ingeniously designed to afford an array of versatile configurations. With all the seats folded, you’ll get up to 71.2 cubic feet of space for all of your gear. And quiet tuning ensures that those whispered comments from the 3rd-row can be heard loud and clear.

CX-9’s Innovative Technology

Always the innovator, Mazda’s Commander control knob situated behind the shifter puts you in control of the CX-9’s easy-to-use Mazda Connect™ audio, communication, connectivity, and navigation suite. Powerful and intuitive, Mazda Connect opens up a world of technology that includes an available 8-inch, full-color display mounted at eye level in the dash. Enjoy the convenience of voice-activated controls, Bluetooth® Audio Streaming plus Pandora®, Stitcher™, and Aha™ internet radio. Plus, you’ll appreciate SMS text response, voice-activated dialing, and connecting to your favorite social media. And pump up your favorite playlists through an available, customized Bose® Centerpoint® 2 12-speaker audio system.

A CX-9 Built To Perform

Mazda bills the all-new CX-9 as a driver’s SUV and with good reason. Get behind the wheel of the CX-9 and discover just how nimble, agile, and fun-to-drive a 7-passenger crossover SUV can be. It all starts with Mazda’s groundbreaking SKYACTIV® Technology that combines spirited performance with exceptional handling.

Powering the CX-9 is an all-new 2.5-liter, Dynamic Pressure SKYACTIVE-G turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. Delivering lively response with virtually no “turbo lag,” this lighter engine’s engineering innovation generates up to 250 horsepower. The engine’s 310 lb.-ft. of torque comes online at a 2,000-rpm sweet spot which is where you’ll spend most of your driving time.

Because the CX-9 is lighter and leaner than previous models, it puts up some impressive fuel efficiency numbers. In fact, it achieves a class-leading EPA-estimated city/highway 25 mpg.

CX-9 Boasts Exceptional Handling

Mazda’s SKYACTIV Technology liberates you from the notion that a large, 7-passenger SUV can be ponderous, sluggish, and downright dull. Mazda fine-tuned the CX-9’s suspension, chassis, and body to create an exhilarating driving experience that will put a smile on your face. In Japanese, it’s called “Jimbo Ittai,” meaning a “oneness” between driver and machine.

But that’s just the beginning. Step up to Mazda’s superbly engineered, available Predictive I-ACTIV AWD® all-wheel-drive and experience a higher level of confidence-inspiring handling and performance. This advanced AWD system continuously monitors road conditions, adjusting power delivery to the wheels that need it most for optimal traction in a variety of road and environmental conditions.

Safety A CX-9 Strength

While getting you from “point A” to “point B” in the new 2016 Mazda CX-9 is supremely satisfying, arriving at your destination safe and sound is an ultimate priority zealously embraced by Mazda engineers. The available i-ACTIVSENSE® suite of advanced safety technologies is designed to help give you a “sixth sense” about the road ahead so you can avoid potential accidents from happening in the first place. Some of these mission-critical safety features include

Mazda Radar Cruise Control – Keeps you at a safe distance from the vehicle ahead of you.

Smart City Brake Support – Imagine a brake system smart enough to detect objects ahead of you and automatically react if there’s a potential collision (between 2 and 18 mph) and no action on your part is taken.

Blind-Spot Monitoring & Rear Cross-Traffic Alert – Mazda literally has your back by detecting objects in your blind spots to the sides and rear of the vehicle.

Lane-Departure Warning & Lane-Keep Assist – Alerts you if your CX-9 starts to drift unintentionally from its intended lane of travel. Lane-Keep Assist will even gently nudge the vehicle back into the line of travel if necessary.

Adaptive Front-Lighting & High Beam Control – The front headlights actually pivot up to 15 degrees, following the turn of the road for enhanced visibility. Headlights automatically adjust from high to low beams when approaching vehicles are detected.

Distance Recognition – This system gives you a warning if you get closer to a vehicle ahead of you based on a pre-set following distance.

We certainly can extol the virtues of the stunningly new and remarkably engineered 2016 Mazda CX-9 SUV all day long. But it’s nice to hear from another point of view. That’s why we appreciate what AutoBlog.com’s Jeremy Korzeniewski has to say:

“Mazda’s effort to throw out the spec sheet and design a large crossover that excels in the real world is laudable…The 2016 Mazda CX-9 is a crossover that’s built not for passengers, but for drivers; for people who need a utility vehicle but aren’t ready to give up the notion driving should be fun. And that’s an idea we can get behind.”
