Exceptional Fuel Economy

The SKYACTIV-G 2.5 T engine, alongside a lighter yet stronger body, means that every drop of fuel is used for maximum power. That means savings on gas at the pump.

Dynamic Pressure Turbo

Dynamic Pressure Turbo

Our patented Dynamic Pressure Turbo is crafted to give you a higher level of power at lower levels of rpm with no lag, which means you get a smooth, powerful ride.

SKYACTIV‑VEHICLE DYNAMICS with G‑Vectoring Control

Embrace S Curves.

SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS with G-Vectoring Control (GVC) works behind the scenes to achieve a smoother, less fatiguing drive for you and your passengers by subtly adjusting engine torque, intentionally optimizing vehicle weight transfer during every day commutes and spirited drives alike. The result is steering that is more precise and a more comfortable ride. Winner of the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada’s (AJAC) award for Best New Innovation Technology 2017.

More Confidence

More Confidence

Due to irregularities and undulations in the road surface, your vehicle does not always travel along the expected line, forcing you to make steering corrections. With GVC, your CX‑9 responds to driver inputs with fewer steering adjustments, so your vehicle behaves as you intend and you enjoy a more confident drive.

More Comfort

More Comfort

Fatigue steadily builds as you continue to make minor steering corrections. GVC helps alleviate these corrections, especially over long distances. Plus, smooth transitions between G-forces suppress head and body sway, allowing for a more comfortable ride for you and your passengers. 

Enhanced Peace of Mind

Enhanced Peace of Mind

GVC enhances handling, stability and the feeling of the tires gripping the road. You’ll gain an even greater feeling of control and security during evasive manoeuvres as well as in rain, snow and on poor road surfaces.

Design

Crafted to Make Driving Better.

The CX-9 with KODO “Soul of Motion” design is handcrafted with the available brushed aluminum and Santos Rosewood trim. Before we moulded a single sheet of metal, every line of the exterior was hand sculpted in clay by our designers to ensure that you experience driving exhilaration even before you get behind the wheel.

Ventilated Front Seats

Ventilated Front Seats


Standard on the GT and Signature models, the new ventilated front seat system draws air through ventilation ports in the seats, drawing hot and humid air away from areas where the seat comes into contact with your body – and delivering a more comfortable driving environment.

New Design Enhancements

New Design Enhancements

From improvements to ride quietness with strategically placed sound absorbers and an available black roof liner‡‡ that enhances the interior design aesthetic, to 20-inch light grey high-lustre alloy wheels now available on the GS-L, the attention to detail in the CX-9 exudes quality and craftsmanship.

Craftsmanship Stories

i-ACTIV AWD

27 Sensors Monitor Your Drive 200 Times per Second.

Our available, predictive i-ACTIV All-Wheel Drive** technology uses 27 sensors to monitor and forecast operating conditions and give you a more confident drive. Something as simple as switching on your windshield wipers is taken into account to automatically deliver the right amount of traction when you need it. New for 2019, all models equipped with AWD also include a full array of i-ACTIVSENSE features (formerly the i-ACTIVSENSE Package).

Essentially Predictive

i-ACTIV AWD monitors driving conditions 200 times per second – everything from steering angle and windshield wiper use to exterior temperature and braking patterns helps predict driving conditions.

AWD Promo 2 title
Ideally Responsive

A slight amount of torque is continuously transferred to the rear wheels to automatically deliver more traction at the precise moment it is needed.

Exceptionally Fuel Efficient

i‑ACTIV AWD is one reason the CX‑9 achieves outstanding fuel economy. By ensuring optimal distribution of torque and minimizing drivetrain energy loss, you’re only using fuel to power AWD when you need to.

Safety

The 2019 CX-9 comes with a matrix of passive and active safety features to help keep you safe. We’ve taken into account the finer details, such as placing easy-to-read, uncluttered instrumentation within the driver’s sightlines. The available and standard suite of i-ACTIVSENSE safety features uses the latest innovations such cameras and radar sensors to give you a better sense of your surroundings. Even the SKYACTIV-Body and -Chassis use ultra-high-tensile steel to help protect occupants in case of an accident. 

360° View Monitor

360° View Monitor


Using four cameras on the front sides and rear, and eight parking sensors, the 360° View Monitor‡‡ generates a surround view of the CX-9 displayed on the MAZDA CONNECT touchscreen: Top View, Side View and Front Wide View and Rear View modes. An alarm sounds when near obstacles while driving at a low speed or while parking. 

Front and Rear Parking Sensors

Front and Rear Parking Sensors

Front and rear parking sensors‡‡ use ultrasonic sensors to detect obstructions around the CX-9 while parking and notify the driver of their approximate distance from the vehicle using a beep sound. Just one more safety measure for added peace of mind.

Traffic Sign Recognition System (TSR)

The Traffic Sign Recognition system‡‡ uses cameras to read road signs such as speed limit, do not enter and stop signs♦♦. The Windshield-projected colour Active Driving Display shows this information so you can stay informed without taking your eyes off the road.

Lane-keep Assist System (LAS)

Rather than keeping the CX‑9 centred between two lines, as some systems do, causing an unnatural “tug” on the steering wheel, LAS** takes driver intention into account, helping the CX‑9 ease into turns and lane changes.

DRSS
Distance Recognition Support System (DRSS)

At speeds above 30 km/hr, the Distance Recognition Support System (DRSS)** measures the distance between your vehicle and the vehicle ahead and recommends a comfortable following distance. 

Pedestrian Detection
Pedestrian Detection

The CX-9 offers the available feature of Pedestrian Detection. When Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) is paired with Smart Brake Support (SBS)**, the system can also detect pedestrians at speeds between 10 and 80 km/hr.

Infotainment

Connect to the Road – and the World.

In designing the CX-9’s cockpit, we focused on technology that would enhance your driving experience. Our “heads-up” Active Driving Display‡‡ is a perfect example of this technology, projecting key safety and navigation information on the windshield, as well as the available 7-inch meter display‡‡, both helping you to stay informed without having to takes your eyes off the road ahead. You can even please the whole family with the available dual USB ports in the second row.

MAZDA CONNECT
MAZDA CONNECT

MAZDA CONNECT makes staying informed and entertained effortless. Features such as audio, hands-free phone, and available navigation are easily controlled using the convenient, multifunction HMI Commander control.

Infotainment
12-Speaker Premium Bose® Sound System‡‡

Custom-built for the CX-9, we worked with Bose® to devise a system that considered hundreds of factors, from cabin size and materials to seat positioning and the unique sound variances of today’s digital devices. The result is outstanding clarity, image and range.

Apple CarPlay
