2017 Mazda CX-9 Signature Edition

by Mike Hunter

Luxury in its class is not all that this all-new Mazda CX9 is getting attention for. It is fuel efficient, technologically savvy and as safe as they come. With a 250-horsepower SKYACTIV-G 2.5T Dynamic Pressure Turbo DOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder with VVT engine, this mid-sized SUV hums along with power and precision.

The Signature edition boasts some very luxurious appointments that only add to the ride and experience for all passengers. Supple Nappa leather, sculpted aluminum and genuine Rosewood deliver a multi-sensory driving experience of sophistication and indulgence. To create a customized, premium sound experience for the CX-9, hundreds of factors were considered, from cabin size and materials to seat positioning. The result is a custom signature Mazda Sound, using an available 12-speaker Bose® Centerpoint® 2 Surround Sound System. No matter where one sits, one hears rich, stunning sound that emulates a live performance.

Mazda’s available predictive i-ACTIV AWD® all-wheel-drive system monitors changing road conditions and adjusts power delivery to help give optimal traction before the wheels could slip. Even when the weather’s perfect, i-ACTIV AWD® helps stabilize and improve the CX-9’s overall road grip by sensing changes in steering effort and throttle input to distribute torque more evenly.

“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.
