2017 Mazda CX-9 — Los Angeles
Mazda’s all-new CX-9 midsize 3-row SUV is the largest model in Mazda’s lineup with the latest take on the KODO Soul of Motion design. Starting from the bold front fascia, the design naturally flows to the rear. The CX-9 debuted in the Mazda’s new signature color: Machine Gray, which was specifically developed to complement the styling. The new CX-9 is powered by a new SKYACTIV-G 2.5-liter turbocharged engine designed to offer a great combination of performance in everyday driving situations as well as good fuel economy. The new engine produces 250 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque when using 93-octane gasoline, and 227 horsepower with 87-octane gas; it has a 6-speed automatic transmission. Available i-ACTIV AWD utilizes information from 27 different sensors and measures road conditions 200 times per second to adjust power distribution between the front and rear axles, as well as accounting for wheel slip. The Mazda CX-9 is scheduled to go on sale in the U.S. market in spring of 2016.
