Motivated by a SKYACTIV®-G 2.5T Dynamic Pressure Turbo 4-cylinder engine, the 2016 Mazda CX-9 SUV creates 227 hp and an impressive 310 lb-ft of torque. Drivers desiring a little extra oomph can fill the gas tank with premium fuel, which kicks horsepower up to 250 hp. Every 2016 CX-9 comes fitted with a SKYACTIV®-Drive 6-speed automatic transmission, which includes manual-shift and Sport modes for added driver control. In the city and on the highway, it should come as no surprise to Mazda enthusiasts that the CX-9 SUV’s fuel economy ratings are well above average for its segment:
The detail-oriented nature of the 2016 CX-9 extends to its handling technology. One notable feature is available i-ACTIV AWD®. This highly intelligent system keeps tabs on a variety of internal and external driving factors, from braking patterns to outside weather conditions. When all-wheel drive is required, i-ACTIV AWD® springs into action by distributing engine torque to the wheels most in need of it, giving you a traction boost on risky driving surfaces. In fact, the i-ACTIV AWD® system is so sensitive, it can detect steering changes during coasting or sharp turns caused by a handful of loose rocks or excess water on the road.
Ultra-modern and pleasing to every sense, the interior of the CX-9 is as masterfully crafted as its powertrain. Keyless entry with “answer back” locks/unlocks the doors via the key fob, while Push Button Start lets you fire up the engine with the press of a button. At the center of the cockpit is the standard 7-inch and available 8-inch display for the Mazda CONNECT™ Infotainment System, which includes:
Perfect for a warm Orlando day, the three-zone automatic climate control system provides individual temperature settings for the front and rear cabin sections. For a charming touch, the Signature trim’s center console and other key areas are crafted with grainy rosewood, which offsets the dashboard’s cool-toned aluminum sculpting. Meanwhile, all but the Sport trim feature lavish Nappa leather seating for a cozy look and feel.
As a three-row SUV, the Mazda CX-9 seats up to seven passengers. The Sport comes with a 6-way manual driver’s seat, 60/40-split-folding second-row seats, and 50/50-split-folding third-row seats. With all seats in place, the cargo area measures in at 14.4 cubic feet, while folding the second- and third-row seats down frees up a total of 71.2 cubic feet. The cargo area also includes an under-floor storage compartment for added privacy, as well as storage boxes for keeping your belongings secure. Whether you’re running errands around Clermont, or packing up for a family vacation, the CX-9 is a clever transporter.
