2017 Mazda CX-9 redesign

The exterior of the crossover completely disclose corporate style KODO (“spirit of movement”), but from a practical point of view, the crossover of the second generation is decreased in length (-30 mm) to almost modest 5065 mm and increased in wheelbase (+55 mm) to 2840 mm. Thus, you can count on greater comfort in the cabin, especially for rear passengers. The updated exterior of the crossover is difficult to describe by few words, KODO is a distinct style of painting. A large grille, led optics of the headlights, the flowing lines of the body with neat transitions, rounded wings, a slight hint of spoiler on liftgate, steam pipe exhaust system and a nice picture of the 18″ (or 19″) wheels is nothing more than the words can hardly convey the emotion of the “spirit movement”.

By reducing the length had to change the proportions of crossover: the windshield pillar has moved 10 cm backwards, which, however, did not affect the overall interior: the backs of the front seats slightly “thinner”, and the second row of seats has become somewhat vertical. However, the third row of seats was more placed on the placement there of children for the sake of preservation of former volume of the trunk.

2017 Mazda CX-9 engine

The power unit is updated Mazda СХ9 improved and decreased at the same time: instead of the previous naturally aspirated “six” is now set to 2.5-liter “turbo-four” with direct fuel injection. Power has also changed: now it’s 250 HP and 420 Nm of maximum torque, box of 6-band “automatic”. Of course, the former “six” twists all 277 “horses”, but the updated crossover has become lighter (-130 kg curb weight in front-wheel modification and -90 kg in all-wheel drive), which in theory will help to reach 60 mph in 10.1 seconds. What will happen in practice — it is difficult to say, dynamic performance is still not made public.
