Amazing Things Are Possible When Driving Matters.

Crafted with a focus on the details that make driving a great experience – right down to the feel of the hand‑stitched steering wheel – the new, three‑row CX‑9 delivers exceptional handling, best‑in‑class standard torque and combined fuel economy and excellent safety for you and your family. 


Performance and Fuel Efficiency.

SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY is an engineering philosophy that pushes the boundaries of what’s possible, taking form and functionality into new and award‑winning territory. The 2017 CX‑9, Mazda’s latest addition to the SKYACTIV roster, is reimagined and rebuilt from the ground up with engineering that seamlessly co-ordinates how each component works together to deliver intuitive and exhilarating driving dynamics that respond immediately to driver intent ‑ all while delivering best-in-class fuel economy†. 


Best-in-Class Standard Torque▲
Best-in-Class Standard Torque

Performance innovations include an amazing 310 lb ft of torque at 2,000 rpm – so you get immediate power at the exact moment you need it.

Best-in-Class Fuel Economy†
Best-in-Class Combined 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.


Crafted to Make Driving Better.

The CX-9 with KODO “Soul of Motion” design is hand crafted with the available brushed aluminum and 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 before you get behind the wheel.

Exceptionally Fuel Efficient

i‑ACTIV AWD is one reason the CX‑9 achieves best‑in‑class combined 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.


The 2017 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 suite of i‑ACTIVSENSE safety features uses the latest innovations such as radar and laser technology to give you a better sense of your surroundings, like Smart City Brake Support (SCBS), now standard on all 2017 CX‑9 models. And even the SKYACTIV‑Body and Chassis use ultra‑high‑tensile steel to help protect occupants in case of an accident. 


Connect to the Road – and the World.

In redesigning the CX-9’s cockpit, we focused on the details that would enhance your driving experience. Our “heads-up” Active Driving Display‡‡‡ is a perfect example of technology, projecting key safety and navigation information on the windshield so that you stay informed without having to take 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 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.

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.
