2015 Mazda CX-9 : spacious fun
The 2015 Mazda CX-9 is not the newest model in the Mazda lineup, but it certainly still manages to be successful in its very competitive segment. The CX-9 is the largest vehicle in the Mazda range, and remains a popular offering for families and buyers seeking a vehicle with a reassuring presence on the road that also happens to offer great performance, strong fuel economy, and plenty of features.
The Mazda CX-9 got a slight visual redesign recently which put the vehicle on par with other newer vehicles from Mazda. These include a redesign of the front-end along with a few new features inside, including a slightly redesigned center stack. Outside, the Mazda CX-9’s design is now dictated by the Japanese manufacturer’s KODO Soul of Motion design philosophy, and overall Mazda’s SUV showcases a more aggressive stance that makes it stand out a little more in the crowd.
The 2015 Mazda CX-9 is powered by the same V6 that has already proven its worth and reliability. Offering 273 horsepower, the 3.7-liter engine offers impressive performance both in the city and on the highway. It will send its power to the front wheels in base versions, and to all four wheels if buyers choose to select that option. Even if we are talking about a six-cylinder engine here, the Mazda CX-9 only requires regular fuel. Overall, fuel economy numbers are impressive, especially given the size and versatility of the Mazda CX-9.
Because in the end, the Mazda CX-9 is a family-focused vehicle that offers plenty of interior space and that can accommodate up to seven passengers and their bags, even if all the rows of seats are up. Head and leg room is perfectly accommodating, even in the last row, although the latter is better reserved for children, as is the case with other vehicles in the same segment. We also really like how everything is designed within the cockpit. You will not spend weeks trying to figure out the ergonomics and layout of the center stack, and you feel comfortable with everything quickly.
Speaking of comfort, the CX-9 offers a quiet cockpit that is great when driving on long distances. Moreover, the seats offer plenty of support, especially when driving around corners at higher speed. As a matter of fact, for buyers who are seeking a pleasurable driving experience, even on a winding road, in a midsize SUV, the Mazda CX-9 is perfectly suited. We like how it remains poised in turns and how the steering feel is basically car-like.
There are a lot of things to love about the 2015 Mazda CX-9. Come in and learn more about the midsize SUV today at King Mazda.
