PREDICTIVE I-ACTIV AWD®

MORE CONFIDENCE FOR MORE DRIVING ENJOYMENT

Weather and road conditions can change in an instant. That’s why Mazda’s available predictive i-ACTIV AWD® all-wheel drive system monitors everything from outside temperature to throttle input and braking patterns. Using that information, it 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 traction.

TIMELY TORQUE

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.

SIGNATURE TRIM

DETAILS DESIGNED TO MAKE DRIVING BETTER

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.

GENUINE ROSEWOOD

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.

ARTFUL ALUMINUM

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.

INTERIOR

THE DRIVER-CENTRIC SUV

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 7 seats, we’d like to recommend the one with the steering wheel.

DRIVER FOCUSED

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.

CONTROL AT YOUR FINGERTIPS

The CX-9’s intuitive Commander control sits within easy reach, next to the shifter knob, so you don’t have to stretch or lean to operate the MAZDA CONNECT™ infotainment system.1 It’s just one of many Mazda features designed to help you keep your focus on the road.

THOUGHTFULLY DESIGNED TO CELEBRATE DRIVING

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 7-passenger SUV.

DESIGN

SIGNATURE PAINT: MACHINE GRAY METALLIC

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.

3 ROWS OF REFINED COMFORT

Even with its sleek low roofline, this stunning full-size SUV 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.

2018 Mazda CX-9 – 7 passenger SUV

ROOM FOR ADVENTURE

This 7-passenger SUV has plenty of room for everyone in the family, and then some. Need extra space for your daytrip essentials? The 50/50 split third row and 60/40 split second row give you plenty of ways to make room for all your cargo and passengers. Or fold both rows down flat for up to 71.2 cubic feet of storage. Looking to keep essential items close, but out of the way? Stow them in the hidden storage in the console, center arm rests and glove box, along with seatback pockets and door-panel bins.

PREMIUM SOUND

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.

2018 Mazda CX-9 safety

When traveling at speeds between about 2 and 18 mph, standard 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. 

ADVANCED BLIND SPOT MONITORING

Standard 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.

LANE DEPARTURE WARNING SYSTEM

LANE-KEEP ASSIST

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.

ADAPTIVE FRONT-LIGHTING SYSTEM

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. 

HIGH BEAM CONTROL

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.

DISTANCE RECOGNITION SUPPORT SYSTEM

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. 

TRAFFIC SIGN RECOGNITION

To help you stay alert and informed, the available Traffic Sign Recognition System11 can show you Speed Limit, Stop, and Do Not Enter information in the Active Driving Display. The system’s strategically mounted cameras scan for road signs, so you can keep your focus on what’s ahead.
