2017 Mazda CX-9
The 2017 Mazda CX-9 looks the part, rides towards the future and will take you down for $31,520 of your hard-earned cash. The entry-level Sport still packs 18″ alloys, LED lighting units, fabric seating surfaces, electronic parking brake, Mazda Connect infotainment with Commander control and a 7-inch color display. The reversing camera and trailer assist might help, but let’s be honest – this thing wasn’t made for camping. The mid-range CX-9 Touring, on the other hand, shows off standard equipment such as Smart City Brake Support – but is that worth $35,970? Count in leather seating surfaces, the 8″ touchscreen, auto-dimming rearview mirror, Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, keyless entry, power front seats, and much more. It all starts to make sense – feel free to take a look at the gallery below.
Feel free to pay $40,470 for the Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring, which will be packing 20-inch wheels, radar-guided cruise control with smart brake support, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, heads-up display and more. There’s also the CX-9 Signature, bragging about an all-wheel drive as standard, LED signature grille lighting, Auburn-colored Nappa leather, LED accent lighting and some wood surfaces inside the cabin. Please note that the entire range hides the 2.5-liter turbo engine under the hood – 250 ponies and 420 Nm of torque on 93-octane gasoline. That actually sounds kind of boring, right? I mean: that’s it?
