Product Overview

Distinction in Design

The purity and simplicity of Japanese aesthetics come to breathtaking life in this premium expression of KODO design language. CX-9's interior is a finely-honed statement of premium design and quality: its range of superior, genuine materials such as aluminium comes together to create an atmosphere of style and sophistication that satisfies all the sense.

Distinction in Dynamics

CX-9 is a premium SUV, meaning it's the ideal answer to all your family's motoring needs. But it's also a Mazda, meaning it's engineered to completely satisfy your desire for exhilarating and responsive driving.

Distinction in daily life

CX-9 is all about making life richer and more rewarding. So, it's designed to make everything you do easier, more satisfying and just plain more enjoyable.

Distinction in Communication

Complete and intutive communication between you and the car. Real-time communication with the world when you're on the road. That's what Mazda's advanced Human-Machine Interface (HMI) and MZD CONNECT internet connectivity offer you. And now Mazda has extended the HMI to include even your driving position to further enhance the Jinba-ittai experience. From your command position behind the wheel you have a panoramic view of the road, with all instruments and controls ideally placed to allow you to focus on careful and enjoyable driving.


Modern cars constantly present more and more information, information that can potentially distract your attention from the road. So Mazda engineered its HMI to clearly give you the information you need for timely decision-making without confusion, with minimal eye movements and with reduced stress. Controls, instruments, steering wheel and shift lever are all ideally placed in relation to the driver’s seat, with the main instrument cluster and steering wheel directly centred on the driver, while the pedals are positioned symmetrically to fall naturally under the feet. Excellent visibility is assured thanks to A-pillars located rearward to offerer a broader view of the road.

Mazda Proactive Safety

Mazda's Proactiv Safety philosphy is firmly grounded in a belief in the driver's abilities, aiming to support safer driving while maintaining all the fun of the road. Safer driving demands early recognition of potential hazards, good judgement and appropriate action, and Mazda works to support these essential functions so you can drive more safely and with peace of mind despite changing driving conditions. First is an optimum driver environment with good visibility, well-positioned controls, easy-to-read instruments and minimal distractions.

Skyactiv Technology


This turbo-charged engine gives you the relaxed yet powerful torque of a 4.0-litre V8 while achieving best-in-class listed and real-world fuel economy. Displacing just 2.5 litres, the Skyactiv-G 2.5T is a showcase of advanced Mazda technology dedicated to maximizing fuel economy along with outstanding dynamic performance, particularly in the low-to mid-rpm range most drivers use most of the time.

Horsepower:  hp  |  Torque:  Nm


This six-speed automatic tranmission combines the smooth operation of a conventional automatic with the fast shifting of a twin-clutch gearbox. Lockup is extended to the nearly 90% for the solid feel of a manual transmission.


Innovation in structure, construction and materials make CX-9 lighter, safer and more rigid. Straight structural members, a continuous framework and extensive use of high-tensile steel achieve the contradictory requirement of lighter weight and greater collision-resistance, particularly in the occupant's area.


To deliver sporty Jinba-ittai driving, CX-9 features strut geometry at the front and a multi-link layout at the rear, specifically tuned to the requirements of an SUV of this size. Electric Power Assist Steering provides comfortable, responsive operation with positive feedback.


Mazda’s new-generation all-wheel-drive system i-Activ AWD works together with GVC Plus to offer confident driving on any road surface, while also contributing to environmental compatibility. It’s also at the heart of the newly adopted Off-Road Traction Assist. The system helps prevent tyre slippage and minimize energy losses enhancing both driveability in poor conditions and fuel economy by instantly distributing power optimally between the front and rear wheels. This is achieved by continuously monitoring road conditions according to various factors such as road gradient and outside temperature and weather, as well as detecting even minimal front wheel slippage. In addition, i-Activ AWD assesses your intentions via your driving operations to precisely adjust torque distribution. An active on-demand system automatically controls power distribution, requiring no decision-making from you and allowing you to maintain your focus on the road.

The touch of a switch engages Off-Road Traction Assist to help you get free when stuck in mud, sand or deep snow. The system optimizes torque distribution, suppressing wheelspin by sending motive power only to the wheels with grip to maximize their driving force and get you smoothly back in motion.


GVC Plus

Smooth transitions between G-forces when braking, turning and accelerating are an essential element of Jinba-ittai, and have been a major development focus at Mazda for many years. This unified feel to braking, steering and acceleration, along with consistent feedback, allows the driver to control the vehicle easily and precisely. And Mazda’s G-Vectoring Control (GVC) — the debut technology of Skyactiv Vehicle Dynamics — took this dynamic, unified feel to an even higher level. Now, advanced GVC Plus offers even greater capability. It’s a logical extension of Mazda’s human-centric design and engineering philosophy that not only concentrates on mechanical efficiency but also considers how a vehicle should be in light of human characteristics. GVC Plus is a new approach to controlling vehicle dynamics that uses the engine and brakes to enhance handling performance, and it gives Mazda vehicles even smoother transitions between G-forces in all driving scenarios.


Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM)

BSM uses 24GHz quasi-milliwave radar sensors to detect vehicles in the blind spots behind and to the side, and using a turn signal while BSM detects a vehicle triggers visual and audio warnings.

Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA)

RCTA uses the same sensors like BSM to alert the driver when it detects vehicles approaching from either side during reversing operations.

Smart Brake Support (SBS)

It uses milliwave radar to detect and measure the distance to a preceding vehicle. When the system judges CX-9 is closing too fast it first warns of danger, and if no action is taken, it then begins to apply the brakes. Works at speed between 15 and 145km/h.

Adaptive LED Headlights

ALH offers the driver greater support for recognizing potential hazards when driving at night. The system improves night visibility and helps the driver avoid hazardous situations by combining the use of Glare-free High Beam (featuring an adjustable illumination range) and Wide-range Low Beam.

Lane-keep Assist System (LAS)

A forward sensing camera detects lane markings and assists the steering to keep you in lane. The system also alerts you when it judges an unintended lane departure is imminent by vibrating the steering wheel or with an audible alarm. When the system determines lane departure is intentional (use of turn signals etc.) no warning are given. The system operates at speeds above approximately 60km/h.

Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS)

LDWS senses lane marking on the road surface. When the system predicts departure from the lane it issues an audible warning similar to the noise a car makes when it runs onto a rumble strip to prompt timely steering corrections. The system assesses driver inputs such as use of the turm signals to weed out false alarms.

Machine Grey Metallic

The Machine Grey Metallic body colour was developed as part of Mazda's unique TAKUMI-NURI (TAKUMI: master craftman, NURI: painting) painting technology, like the brand colour Soul Red Metallic. It achieves an unprecedented combination of colour, highlights, shade and depth to emphasize the dynamic body shape of KODO design, and makes CX-9 look as though it were carved from a single ingot of steel.
