2017 MAZDA CX-9
THOUGHTFULLY DESIGNED TO CELEBRATE DRIVING
Mazda’s KODO: “Soul of Motion” design philosophy conveys a sense of strength and energy manifested in the CX-9’s athletic stance, elongated hood and tapered roofline. The overall effect is a combination of composed power and instantaneous movement, resulting in a truly striking three-row SUV.
SIGNATURE PAINT: MACHINE GRAY METALLIC
Like every aspect of the CX-9, its signature paint color was crafted with the utmost attention to detail. Over the sheet metal, a black primer coat is covered with a precisely sprayed layer of aluminum silver paint. The highly controlled process ensures the coat’s aluminum paint flakes are aligned with the CX-9’s body panels. Along with gray and colorless clear coating, this gives the black and silver hues more luminosity and a reflective, liquid-like quality for our most premium color yet.
While sophistication is felt throughout the cabin, we gave special attention to the most important seat—the driver’s. By positioning the shifter and console slightly higher than in the previous-generation CX-9, we help the driver experience a greater sense of connection and control.
PREMIUM NAPPA LEATHER
For the finest upholstery ever used in a Mazda, we chose a material that this car and its drivers deserve—Nappa leather. Supple in feel and auburn hued, it’s evocative of bespoke horse saddles, a subtle nod to Mazda’s Jinba Ittai “horse and rider as one” driving philosophy.
BY REDUCING NOISE, WE ENHANCED THE SOUND
Another way the CX-9 elevates the driving experience is by subduing road, wind and engine noise. We added 53 pounds of sound-deadening material, used sound-insulating glass, and installed even better seal insulation than in the previous generation. All this makes the CX-9 remarkably quiet, ensuring your time behind the wheel is one of minimal stress and maximum enjoyment.
SEAMLESS CONNECTIVITY. ENDLESS OPTIONS.
The MAZDA CONNECT™ infotainment system1 makes staying informed and entertained effortless. Explore the possibilities, including audio, hands-free calls, the available navigation system, and much more. With a full-color touchscreen display and intuitive Commander control, you have complete access to everything you need while on the go.
SMART CITY BRAKE SUPPORT
When traveling at speeds between about 2 and 18 mph, available Smart City Brake Support1 helps detect objects ahead and prepares your vehicle by adjusting brake pads closer to the disc. If no action is taken, the brakes are automatically applied.
DISTANCE RECOGNITION SUPPORT SYSTEM
At speeds above 19 mph, available Distance Recognition Support System2 measures distance between your vehicle and the vehicle ahead and recommends a comfortable following distance. If your vehicle encroaches on this distance, a warning light illuminated.
While typical engines generate most of their power in the upper RPM range, the CX-9 is carefully engineered to give you plenty of torque at lower RPMs, where you spend the majority of your drive time. You can tap into 310 ft-lb of torque at 2,000 RPM, substantially more than the 2017 Infiniti QX60 and Acura MDX.
In every car we make, the focus is on responsiveness and driving enjoyment. Our three-row SUV is no exception. Engineered from the ground up with SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY, the CX-9 stands out from the competition with outstanding driving dynamics.
 Smart City Brake Support operates under certain low-speed conditions between about 2 and 18 mph. It is not a substitute for safe and attentive driving. Factors including movement and shape of the object in front of the vehicle, weather and road conditions can all impact automatic stopping.
 Distance Recognition Support System is not a substitute for safe and attentive driving. There are limitations to the range and detection of the system. Please see your Owner’s Manual for further details.
