Mazda's midsize SUV has always been a fun-to-drive model, but it takes things to a whole new level for the 2016 model year. With a brand new power source and sleek new design, the CX-9 is equipped to shake up the midsize sedan segment. To experience the 2016 Mazda CX-9 near Irvine CA for yourself, contact us at Capistrano Mazda to stay updated on its late spring/early summer 2016 release.
Once the new CX-9 arrives here at Capistrano Mazda, we'd be happy to help get you behind the wheel. The model looks better than ever, adopting Mazda's attractive KODO design language, as well as Mazda's impressive SKYACTIV® engineering. Now, the CX-9 is lightweight while delivering power where drivers need it most in real-world driving situations.
The 2016 Mazda CX-9 comes with a new 2.5-liter turbocharged SKYACTIV® engine that delivers up to 250 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. The maximum torque output is available at a low rpm, which should get drivers the power they need when they need it during real-world driving. Despite all the power, the CX-9 has best-in-class combined fuel economy with 22 city and 28 highway mpg.
i-ACTIV® Predictive AWD
As optional equipment, the 2016 Mazda CX-9 can come with Mazda's impressive i-ACTIV® AWD system. The system is predictive rather than just reactive. This means it can sense and monitor driving conditions to predict when a wheel slip might occur. This allows the system to route power to the wheels that need it before wheel slippage occurs, helping to prevent it.
To start, the CX-9 comes with standard features like LED taillights and a 7-inch color display for the Mazda Connect infotainment system. These are premium-quality features that many drivers would expect to have to pay extra for. On top of that, available features for the CX-9 include leather seats, an Active Driving Display, Radar Cruise Control, and features on the new Signature trim like Nappa leather seats and rosewood trim.
