Mazda Malaysia: The Fresh-Face Mazda CX-9

Mazda’s top-of-the-line model, the CX-9, represents a fresh choice for active, style-conscious families dissatisfied with existing SUVs. The CX-9 stands apart from competing models in that its design and dynamics require no sacrifices in roominess, ride comfort, and other aspects of functionality. CX-9 owners not only enjoy the personal satisfaction yielded by the refined design and sporty handling but can also take pride in offering family members and friends an extremely comfortable and safe ride.

The dynamic Mazda CX-9 has been comprehensively refreshed to further heighten its international profile and popularity, as well as strengthen the Mazda brand.

The new Mazda CX-9 projects the image of a crossover SUV with unique Mazda values. It is a highly functional vehicle distinguished by a sleek design with long, low proportions as well as sporty, dynamic performance rarely experienced in an SUV. Although CX-9 is a full-size SUV, it has all the eye-catching design and fun-to-drive dynamics that are core strengths of the Mazda brand.

The new Mazda CX-9 incorporates the ‘KODO — Soul of Motion’ design theme. The vitality expressed by this design theme and the long, low proportions of CX-9 combine to create a look that speaks of class.

The new Mazda CX-9 is the very word in functional and satisfying equipment. The audio and navigation systems, for example, have evolved to meet people’s growing dependence on information technology, and the improved equipment greatly enhances pleasure of ownership. Highlights include satin-silver finished decorative items which accent the black based interior, flush surfaces for the audio and navigation units, white meter illumination and a chic centre stack. The steering wheel is wrapped with smoother leather for a more comfortable grip, as well as a quality look and feel. And the incorporation of Bordeaux Metal decoration panels gives a look of higher quality and greater sophistication.

The CX-9 is equipped with Mazda’s largest engine – a naturally-aspirated 3.7L V6 unit – for class-topping performance and excellent emissions control. The high, flat torque curve enables the full-size CX-9 to respond to accelerator inputs as if anticipating the driver’s intentions. Combined with the high rigidity body, the CX-9 successfully balances dynamic performance with ride comfort to achieve excellent drivability comparable to premium European SUVs. Powerful, linear braking with a short stopping distance offers drivers a confident feeling of safety and control. Advanced Mazda suspension technology gives surefooted, linear response to steering inputs. The six-speed Activematic transmission provides smooth, positive automatic shifting as well as sporty manual gearshift. The Active Torque Split All-Wheel-Drive system optimally divides torque between front and rear wheels for assured handling even on slippery roads.

The superior performance provides a perfect point of appeal for CX-9 as a ‘Driver’s Car’ while at the same time the vehicle also appeals to passengers as a ‘Pleasingly Luxurious Car’.

In its newest form, the Mazda CX-9 is the perfect match for its owners’ active and varied lifestyles.
