The all-new Mazda CX-9 , the high-end model of Mazda’s new-generation lineup, has been tailored for the North American market.
The three-row midsized crossover SUV features the latest SKYACTIV technology and KODO—Soul of Motion design.
With the all-new CX-9, Mazda is proposing a new kind of a crossover SUV aimed at more mature families. Offering an indulgent experience of quality and comfort, the model goes beyond specs and functionality to support and enhance every aspect of customers’ busy and multi-faceted lives—not just their role as a parent. The latest in KODO design portrays a more premium image and the all-new CX-9 offers quieter, more refined Jinba-ittai driving with superb fuel economy performance. Designed to meet the needs of the modern family, the model offers a comfortable and well-thought-out cabin space, i-ACTIVSENSE advanced safety features and the i-ACTIV AWD all-wheel-drive system. It is the first model to feature Mazda’s new 2.5-liter direct-injection turbocharged gasoline engine, SKYACTIV-G 2.5T.
The SKYACTIV engine series aims to offer customers a combination of outstanding fuel economy and excellent dynamic performance in everyday driving situations. Mazda’s development philosophy is to offer this combination across all vehicle lines, using the most appropriate engine displacement and simplest configuration of technologies for a given vehicle size.
Traditionally, turbocharged engines have suffered from poor dynamic performance at low rpms, including turbo lag, and disappointing real-world fuel economy. SKYACTIV-G 2.5T overcomes these problems with the Dynamic Pressure Turbo, the world’s first turbocharging system that can vary the degree of exhaust pulsation depending on engine speed, and a cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) system that allows the engine to maintain the ideal air-fuel ratio over a wider output range.
Mazda will continue to offer all customers driving pleasure and outstanding environmental performance through its SKYACTIV engines which aim to achieve the ideal in combustion.
