Mazda CX-9

The Mazda CX-9 is a full-size crossover SUV manufactured since April 2006 by Mazda in Japan, at its Ujina #1 plant in Hiroshima Prefecture.

Despite being built in Japan, the CX-9 is not sold in Japan’s domestic market, as it exceeds Japanese government dimension regulations and the engine displacement obligates a large annual road tax bill. Instead, the closely related Mazda CX-8 is sold in the market in Japan.

In Malaysia. Two variants will be offered to customers – 2.5 2WD and 2.5 AWD. The 2WD is priced at RM281,449.70, while the 4WD goes for RM297,349.70, making both slightly cheaper than the outgoing Australian-spec model – RM286,749.70 for the 2WD and RM302,649.70 for the AWD.

The second generation Mazda CX-9 uses a turbocharged version of the 2.5 litre four cylinder SkyActivG petrol engine, producing 227 hp (169 kW) on 87 AKI octane fuel and 250 hp (186 kW) on premium fuel and 420 Nm (310 lb-ft) of torque. The engine is joined with a six speed automatic transmission.

The new exterior design follows Mazda’s Kodo design philosophy. It is shorter than before, but rides on a longer wheelbase, resulting in shorter front and rear overhangs. Weight is also down 90 kilograms (190 lbs) in FWD and 130 kilograms (287 lbs) in AWD versions. The CX-9 now comes with LED daytime running lights instead of the halogen units which equip the Aussie-spec models. That, and the addition of the ‘GVC’ badge, LED headlights, front fog lamps and taillights, along with bulb-type rear fogs, eight parking sensors, a powered tailgate, powered sunroof, all-round disc brakes and a set of 20-inch five twin-spoke alloy wheels.

As for interiors, it include a triple-zone auto climate control system (with rear vents), leather upholstery, powered seats with driver’s side memory, projector-type Active Driving Display, 4.6-inch multi-info instrument cluster display, MZD Connect infotainment system with an eight-inch touchscreen and a 12-speaker Bose sound system.

Mazda added many new active safety systems on the new CX-9. These include the Blind Spot Monitoring, Radar Cruise Control with a Stop/Start function, Lane Keep Assist, Lane Departure Warning, High Beam Control, Autonomous Emergency Braking (low & high speed). All models come standard with Autonomous Emergency Braking (low speed) and Blind Spot Monitoring.
