Headed by the range-topping Azami, Brand-New Mazda CX-9 buyers will be spoilt for choice when Mazda’s large seven-seater SUV goes on sale later this year.
The new-generation Mazda CX-9 will be available in four grades for the first time, including the entry-level Sport, the mid-spec Touring, the high grade GT and the high plus Azami, bringing it in line with the four grades offered on Mazda CX-5 and First-Ever-Mazda CX-3.
Available with both Front-Wheel Drive (FWD) and All-Wheel Drive (AWD) drivetrains, it brings the complete range of CX-9s on offer to eight – the largest ever offered.
Making the range even more attractive, Brand New Mazda CX-9 boasts combined fuel economy figures from a low 8.4 litres per 100 kilometres, while the All-Wheel Drive (AWD) alternative sips only 8.8 litres per 100 kilometres. This represents an improvement of almost 25 per cent.
Running on standard (91 RON ) or with E10 petrol, and with 170kW of power and 420Nm or torque, the Brand-New Mazda CX-9 includes the all-new 2.5 litre direct-injection turbo charged petrol engine with both i-stop and i-ELOOP technology.
i-stop saves fuel by switching off the engine when the engine comes to a stop, restarting when the driver takes their foot off the brake. i-ELOOP, a world-first technology developed by Mazda, is a capacitor-based brake energy generation system that stores energy which is used to power the vehicle’s electrical system, also saving fuel.
The Brand-New Mazda CX-9 will be the most economical in its class when compared to other seven seater petrol models.
“This is the most comprehensive Mazda CX-9 range ever,” said Mazda Australia marketing director Alastair Doak.
“Four grades in both Front and All-Wheel Drive, this brings the Mazda CX-9 range in line with the four distinct grades that we offer on Mazda CX-5 and Mazda CX-3. Both of which have proved to be very appealing to Australian car buyers.
“When the Brand-New Mazda CX-9 arrives, thanks to the strength of the range and the significantly improved fuel economy figures, there is certainly something for everyone.”
The Brand-New Mazda CX-9 also features the efficient and lightweight SKYACTIV Technology, a range of i-ACTIVSENSE advanced safety technologies, the impressive i-ACTIV AWD all-wheel drive system, and the award-winning ‘KODO – Soul of Motion’ design language.
