Overview

What's New
The CX-9 crossover sport utility is the newest offering from Mazda and launches as a 2007 model. It is a 7-passenger vehicle and its chassis also provides the basis for the Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX .

Overview
For 2006, Mazda launched its CX-7 crossover sport utility vehicle and, for 2007, adds the larger CX-9 version that is built on a separate (not just lengthened) chassis and provides room for a third row of seating. The CX-9 is a midsize crossover utility with 17.2 cubic feet of cargo space between the upright third-row seat and the rear liftgate. To enhance passenger comfort, the second row slides fore and aft up to 5 inches. The CX-9 also comes with a larger and more powerful engine than the CX-7; while the CX-7 has a turbocharged 4-cylinder powerplant, the CX-9 gets a 263-hp, 3.5-liter V-6 linked to a 6-speed automatic transmission. The CX-9 is available with front- or all-wheel drive for enhanced traction in inclement weather or other low-traction conditions.

The CX-9 is available in Sport, Touring, and Grand Touring versions. All have standard air conditioning, power windows/locks and remote keyless entry, cruise control, six air bags (including side curtain air bags), and offer a choice of black or beige interior. The Sport rides on 18-inch wheels, has halogen headlamps, and comes with cloth seating surfaces. The Touring model adds leather, power front-seat adjustment and, for the first time on a Mazda, Bluetooth hands-free telephone capability. The Grand Touring adds 20-inch wheels, rain-sensing wipers, exterior mirrors with turn indicators, a memory driver's seat, an advanced keyless start system, wood trim, indirect blue interior lighting, and more.
