With how impressive the crossovers have been for 2020, does the Mazda CX 9 stand out? Mazda has many other vehicles available but none have stood out in the crossover class as much as the CX 9. So what about its set of features and design gives it the ability to stand over the rest?
An Engine That Is Strong Only When You Need It
An engine that isn’t always at full power, sounds odd right? Surprisingly, this design choice has made it clear that Mazda is looking more towards smart thinking instead of wasting power. Under the hood of the Mazda CX 9 is a 2.5 litre in-line 4 cylinder 16-valve petrol turbo engine with Mazda’s i-stop and i-ELOOP attachments. This engine has the power to handle normal and normal off-road with ease but being a turbo engine that’s not the best part. Because of its ability to enhance its power when needed, during most daily scenarios when it doesn’t need that power this engine can save you some money thanks to having better fuel efficiency.
Gadgets That Help In Daily Tasks
When you talk about some of the best vehicles in a line-up the main way to distinguish them is the gadgets and accessories that are included. These gadgets don’t just look fancy but also help to make sure that your daily experience is enhanced. The Mazda CX 9 does this amazingly.
The CX 9 is packed with some show-stopping accessories like the included safety features and additions that focus on improving your daily driving. The main ones to discuss are the 7-inch display screen, active driving display, electric parking brake, powered tailgate, sunroof, ventilated seats and advanced climate control. For most vehicles, a list this grand would be their achievements but for Mazda, this is their common standard.
Display Screen Helps For Utility And Safety
Although it isn’t uncommon, a display screen with Bluetooth capabilities is an aspect that is welcomed anytime. The Mazda CX 9 comes with a 7-inch colour touchscreen that can handle all the usual apps you would expect, like Bluetooth calling and general app support. The CX 9 also comes with satellite navigation standard so navigating to new places won’t be an issue. It also is fully compatible with the popular phone operating systems thanks to the integrated Apple Carplay and Android Auto.
Where is the safety of a display screen? Well, keeping your eyes focused on the road while handling everything in between means that no longer will you be caught off guard trying to put in a destination for a location or picking up a work/family call.
7 Seats To Enjoy Trips With Friends And Family
Do you have a big family or a large group of friends? Do you also need a vehicle that can seat everyone with comfort? The Mazda CX 9’s 5 + 2 seat configuration means that you have all the seats you need available when you need it the most. When it comes to different options for seat designs there are 3 potential materials you can choose through. You have the options of Cloth, Leather and Nappa Leather which is great for those who have a preference.
The Option To Show Your Style
A vehicle can’t stand above others if it’s not able to showcase the driver’s taste. A car and its capabilities are the end result of the user’s judgement and style, so having many options helps to keep everyone happy. Mazda is known for good looking cars with strong colours but they have gone beyond with the amount of potential combinations to choose from. In total there are 36 colour combinations when you combine the interior and exterior colour. Here is a list of the colours to choose from:
- Red Metallic
- Grey Metallic
- White Mica
- Silver Metallic
- Titanium Mica
- Blue Mica
- Black Mica
- Black Cloth
- Black Leather
- Black Leather With White Accents
- Natural Stone Leather
- White Nappa Leather
- Brown Nappa Leather
A Decent Sized Boot With Great Potential For Camping Trips
Being a large vehicle that can boast 7 seats, even if you don’t want to sacrifice seating space you still have a lot of boot to work with. The Mazda CX 9 is designed to be a vehicle that’s great for trips and transport. But unlike others where you kinda have to decide on one or another, Mazda gives you the options to have both with the CX 9. With all sets of seats up you are looking at 407L of space which can come off as small but if you keep in mind that all three rows of seats are up. Folding down the third row leaves 1081L of space which is great for picnics and handling large loads of shopping. If you are only planning two people and have the second and third row of seats down then you have 2016L of space.
Luxury Additions If Your Looking To Go Up In Models
There are 4 different models for the FWD and AWD drive variants of the Mazda CX 9. The base model SPORT has all the essentials and pleasure for daily use. The next model is TOURING which includes leather seats, front parking sensors and one-touch walk-in switch. GT is up from that and comes with a sunroof, Bose audio and 20-inch alloy wheels. Lastly is AZAMI which is the highest tier and includes adaptive LED headlamps, brown Nappa Leather seats and ventilated front seats. Each model’s increased costs come with additions that make up for the cost.
If you are in the market for a new crossover and haven’t decided already, then maybe now you have an idea of what to choose. Although it does come down to preference you can’t decline the fact that the Mazda CX 9 is an impressive vehicle.
