Mazda’s available predictive i-ACTIV AWD® all-wheel-drive system monitors changing road conditions and adjusts power delivery to help give you optimal traction before your wheels can slip. Even when the weather’s perfect, i-ACTIV AWD® helps stabilize and improve the CX-9’s overall road grip by sensing changes in steering effort and throttle input to distribute torque more evenly.

While typical engines generate most of their power in the upper RPM range, the CX-9 is carefully engineered to give you plenty of torque at lower RPMs, where you spend the majority of your drive time. You can tap into 310 ft-lb of torque at 2,000 RPM, substantially more than the 2017 Infiniti QX60 and Acura MDX.

In every car we make, the focus is on responsiveness and driving enjoyment. Our three-row SUV is no exception. Engineered from the ground up with SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY, the CX-9 stands out from the competition with outstanding driving dynamics.LEARN MORE
When it comes to driving, there’s no such thing as a “minor” detail. That’s why we considered every single one when we crafted the CX-9’s indulgent Signature Trim. Supple Nappa leather, sculpted aluminum and genuine Rosewood deliver a multi-sensory driving experience of sophistication and indulgence.

Shaped to suggest a carved object, the genuine Rosewood of the center console is completed with a matte finish that is pleasing to the touch while revealing the wood’s depth of grain. Also used for fine musical instruments, Rosewood is a highly valued material all around the world.

Inspired by Japan’s famous handmade cutlery, a sleek, sweeping piece of aluminum sculpts the dash, emphasizing width, sophistication, and true Japanese craftsmanship. Brushed to a satin-like smoothness, it’s as pleasing to the touch as it is to the eye.

PREMIUM NAPPA LEATHER
For the finest upholstery ever used in a Mazda, we chose a material that this car and its drivers deserve—Nappa leather. Supple in feel and auburn hued, it’s evocative of bespoke horse saddles, a subtle nod to Mazda’s Jinba Ittai “horse and rider as one” driving philosophy.
The grocery run. The cross-country excursion. The evening out. With its indulgent interior and a multitude of cargo configurations, the CX-9 is equipped to handle every kind of drive in style. But while comfort and sophistication are evident in each of its seven seats, we’d like to recommend the one with the steering wheel.

While sophistication is felt throughout the cabin, we gave special attention to the most important seat—the driver’s. By positioning the shifter and console slightly higher than in the previous-generation CX-9, we help the driver experience a greater sense of connection and control.
By monitoring everything…
PREDICTIVE I-ACTIV AWD®
By monitoring everything from outside temperature to throttle input and braking patterns, available i-ACTIV AWD® predicts when all-wheel drive might be needed. Then it preemptively optimizes torque distribution to help curb traction loss.
Mazda’s KODO: “Soul of Motion” design philosophy conveys a sense of strength and energy manifested in the CX-9’s athletic stance, elongated hood and tapered roofline. The overall effect is a combination of composed power and instantaneous movement, resulting in a truly striking three-row SUV.
Like every aspect of the CX-9, its signature paint color was crafted with the utmost attention to detail. Over the sheet metal (5), a black primer coat (4) is covered with a precisely sprayed layer of aluminum silver paint. The highly controlled process ensures the coat’s (3) aluminum paint flakes (2) are aligned with the CX-9’s body panels. Along with gray and colorless clear coating (1), this gives the black and silver hues more luminosity and a reflective, liquid-like quality for our most premium color yet.
From reducing the gaps between…
EVEN THE DETAILS HAVE DETAILS
From reducing the gaps between the segments of the characters on the display panels to outfitting the cabin with genuine available materials like Nappa leather and Rosewood, every detail in the CX-9 was considered in order to deliver a premium driving experience.
Even with its sleek low roofline, the CX-9 still…
THREE ROWS OF REFINED COMFORT
Even with its sleek low roofline, the CX-9 still offers more volume and more second- and third-row legroom than the Acura MDX or Toyota Highlander. Accessing the third row is simple, making it easy for kids to climb in—all without needing to remove an installed child seat.
Numerous cleverly placed storage…
STORAGE TO SPARE
Numerous hidden storage compartments in the console, center arm rests and glove box, along with seatback pockets and door-panel bins, keep essential items close, but out of the way.
To create a customized, premium sound experience for the CX-9, hundreds of factors were considered, from cabin size and materials to seat positioning. The result is our custom signature Mazda Sound, using an available 12-speaker Bose® Centerpoint® 2 Surround Sound System. No matter where you sit, you hear rich, stunning sound that emulates a live performance—which makes driving even better.

BY REDUCING NOISE, WE ENHANCED THE SOUND
Another way the CX-9 elevates the driving experience is by subduing road, wind and engine noise. We added 53 pounds of sound-deadening material, used sound-insulating glass, and installed even better seal insulation than in the previous generation. All this makes the CX-9 remarkably quiet, ensuring your time behind the wheel is one of minimal stress and maximum enjoyment.

SEAMLESS CONNECTIVITY. ENDLESS OPTIONS.
The MAZDA CONNECT™ infotainment system1 makes staying informed and entertained effortless. Explore the possibilities, including audio, hands-free calls, the available navigation system, and much more. With a full-color touchscreen display and intuitive Commander control, you have complete access to everything you need while on the go.
That’s what available i-ACTIVSENSE® safety innovations give you. They use advanced technologies like milliwave radars and cameras to give you a sixth sense for safety, helping to alert you to hazards before they happen. It’s another way Mazda lets you focus on what matters most: driving.
Available Mazda Radar Cruise Control3 judges the relative speed and distance to the car ahead and works within a set speed range to help maintain a safe following distance. Warnings alert you if your vehicle is fast approaching the one ahead.
When traveling at speeds between about 2 and 18 mph, available Smart City Brake Support4 helps detect objects ahead and prepares your vehicle by adjusting brake pads closer to the disc. If no action is taken, the brakes are automatically applied.
Available Advanced Blind Spot Monitoring5 helps detect objects in your blind spots and alerts you with a chime and warning light in the side mirror. It also detects and warns you of fast-approaching vehicles that may enter a blind spot.
When traveling at speeds above 10 mph, available Smart Brake Support6 helps detect objects ahead and warns you when braking is immediately necessary. If no driver action is taken, the system automatically applies the brakes.
When backing up, available Rear Cross Traffic Alert7 helps detect a vehicle approaching from the side and promptly alerts the driver with an audible warning, as well as a visual warning in either side mirror and the display screen.
When traveling at speeds of 37 mph or higher, available Lane Departure Warning System8 gives you audible and visual warnings when it detects that your vehicle is about to unintentionally depart from its lane.
Available Lane-keep Assist9 adds to the warnings of the Lane Departure Warning System. When it senses a potential unintentional lane departure at speeds of 37 mph or higher, it will perform minor steering corrections to help guide your vehicle back to the center of the lane.
This available system is designed to help you see around corners at night. As you turn into a corner, the headlights pivot up to 15 degrees in the direction of your turn, improving visibility and allowing you to spot potential hazards ahead.
Available High Beam Control helps the driver see better at night by maximizing opportunities to use the high beams. The system automatically switches to low beams when it detects oncoming traffic and/or a vehicle ahead.
At speeds above 19 mph, available Distance Recognition Support System10 measures the distance between your vehicle and the vehicle ahead and recommends a comfortable following distance. If your vehicle encroaches on this distance, a warning light illuminates.
