The first shipment of Brand-New Mazda CX-9s have arrived in Australia ahead of its July launch.
Scheduled for use at the national media launch, followed by a Mazda Dealer event, 60 vehicles docked in Melbourne late last night having been shipped direct from Japan.
Buyer interest in Mazda’s luxury seven-seat family-sized SUV is at an all-time high with almost 55,000 potential purchase leads registering their interest in the vehicle, of which 13,000 want to be contacted directly by a Mazda representative.
Never has there been so much pre-launch interest in a Mazda model, with CX-9 numbers surpassing the record 34,000 leads and 9,700 priority call requests recorded for All-New Mazda MX-5 prior to its showroom debut in early-August last year.
“We had record interest in Mazda MX-5, but the response to Brand-New Mazda CX-9 has been remarkable,” said Mazda Australia marketing director Alastair Doak.
“Never have we experienced such pre-launch interest in a Mazda nameplate.
“This gives our sales team a fantastic starting platform, with the goal being to turn as many of these potential buyers into CX-9 owners.”
When the Brand-New Mazda CX-9 goes on sale it will be available in four grades for the first time, including the entry-level Sport, mid-grade Touring, high-spec GT and high plus grade Azami.
Available with the all-new SKYACTIV-G 2.5T 2.5 litre direct-injection turbo charged petrol engine with both i-stop and i-ELOOP technology, the Brand-New Mazda CX-9 boasts fuel economy figures from a low 8.4 litres per 100 kilometres.
The Brand-New Mazda CX-9 also features the efficient and lightweight SKYACTIV Technology, the impressive i-ACTIV AWD all-wheel drive system, and the award-winning ‘KODO – Soul of Motion’ design language.
