2014 Mazda CX-9

New For 2014

The 2014 Mazda CX-9 features a new finish on its 18-inch wheels, a new design for 20-inch wheels, and the availability of rear cross-traffic alert on Touring and Grand Touring models.

Vehicle Summary

Introduced for 2008, the Mazda CX-9 presents itself as a Euro-style utility vehicle. Its interior and exterior styling have remained fresh thanks to an emphasis on design modernity along with family values. The CX-9 offers seven-passenger capacity from three rows of seats, yet this is still meant to be a daily driver, so it's relatively compact in overall size. Although the CX-9 offers 139.7 cubic feet of interior volume, the stylish interior architecture might leave the passengers feeling a little constricted.

The Mazda CX-9 was named as an Automobile Magazine All-Star in 2008 and finished third in automobilemag.com's 2013 comparison of family utilities.

Overview

It's easy to believe that all crossover-utility vehicles are the same. Take a comfortable, car-like platform and adapt it to all-wheel drive (or not), then configure an interior that can haul either passengers or cargo. Nevertheless, the results are always different, and the 2014 Mazda CX-9 has found its niche as a crossover that makes you feel like more than a bus driver.

The 2014 Mazda CX-9 is available in either front- or four-wheel drive. A 3.7-liter V-6 matched with a six-speed automatic transmission does the job of motivating this Mazda, and the transmission's responsive programming makes the CX-9 crossover feel more like a car than a truck. The engine makes 273 270 lb-ft of torque. On its allotment of regular grade gasoline, the V-6 delivers 17/24 mpg in front-wheel-drive form and 16/22 mpg with the all-wheel drive.

Over the past few years, many of the electronic comfort and convenience features that once were considered as options have instead become must-have items. The Mazda CX-9 has always been a very well-equipped crossover in this respect, and it has been updated effectively. It offers the keyless ignition, rear-view camera, and blind-spot monitoring that have become essential, and Bluetooth, premium audio, navigation and a rear-seat entertainment system are part of the program Three different trim levels are available: Sport, Touring and Grand Touring.

In short, the 2014 Mazda CX-9 is a step above its competition in many respects and compares very well with the utility vehicles offered by the Japanese-label premium brands of Acura, Infiniti and Lexus.
