Mazda CX-9 Price, Review & Picture – New Car Reviews, For 2011 the CX-9 gets chrome interior accents, new seat fibers, and softer leathers, There is also a redesigned rear climate control console, refreshed keyless entry and start system, a 4.3-inch LCD, and two-stage heated seats (standard on Touring and Grand Touring, optional on Sport). A back-up camera is available for the first time in 2011.
The 2011 Mazda CX-9 crossover SUV is a big competitor in its segment. The vehicle has three rows and it now enters its fourth year in production. The CX-9 has already established a great reputation and image. Now, it is offered with enhancements to its exterior and interior packaging too so it is even more appealing.
The CX-9 was awarded the Car of the Year Award in 2008 by Motor Trend. At present, there really is no offering that competes with the CX-9. This seven seater hosts a large cargo area with 17.6 cubic feet of space. It handles rough and smooth terrain, it is easy to handle, and manages all road conditions with ease. The cabin has plenty of niceties for entertainment and comfort. It has a refined handling despite its larger size as well.
The iconic smiling grille on the CX-9 makes this vehicle aerodynamic. Exterior enhances include the addition of rear garnishments, rear lamps, and mew mirrors. The 2011 offering is offered with a Dolphin Gray exterior too. Overall, the CX-9 has an exceptional package and price.
Designers hoped to achieve a “sophisticated appearance” with the CX-9′s redesign. A thick chrome bar makes the front grille pop, while the flowing profile, raked windshield, and muscular corners evoke an attractive sports car like attitude.
Three zone climate control, power windows, and plenty of rear under storage come standard on the CX-9. Leather wrapped steering wheel, shift knob, and center armrest, as well as Bluetooth connectivity are also included. How does 100.7 cubic-feet of cargo room (with both second and third rows folded) sound?
The 2010 CX-9′s 3.7-liter V-6 makes 263 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. It’s a fun big ride thanks to the fully independent suspension fore and aft. If towing or soft-roading is your thing, go with the all-wheel drive setup that’s capable of sending as much as 50 of torque to the rear rubber when the situation warrants.
Driver and passenger dual front, side, and side curtain airbags come standard on the CX-9. Dynamic stability control and traction control help to keep all four wheels planted. On Grand Touring models, there’s also an available blind spot monitoring system.
