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.

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.

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.

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, a black primer coat is covered with a precisely sprayed layer of aluminum silver paint. The highly controlled process ensures the coat’s aluminum paint flakes are aligned with the CX-9’s body panels. Along with gray and colorless clear coating, this gives the black and silver hues more luminosity and a reflective, liquid-like quality for our most premium color yet.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 Center point Surround Sound System. No matter where you sit, you hear rich, stunning sound that emulates a live performance—which makes driving even better.
