2016 Mazda CX-9 pricing confirmed
Following the leak of an internal document listing indicative pricing for the new Mazda CX-9, Mazda has released official pricing undercutting the leaked pricing.
LAST WEEK, several publications were sent leaked documents listing details and indicative pricing for the new Mazda CX-9 and, let’s not beat around the bush here, the prices seemed high. Now, Mazda has released official pricing which undercuts that “indicative” pricing by a lot.
The four variant line-up is kicked off by the entry-level Mazda CX-9 Sport which replaces the outgoing Classic model and is available from $42,490 – a price reduction of $1280 compared to the Classic model. Next in line is the CX-9 Touring which starts from $48,890, the Mazda CX-9 GT from $57,390, while the range-topping Azami begins at $59,390.

“The Brand-New Mazda CX-9’s value proposition is a strong one,” said Mazda Australia marketing director Alastair Doak.
“Starting from $42,490 plus on roads, each grade offers something unique, we expect Brand-New Mazda CX-9 will appeal to a broad buyer group.
“When you consider the seven-seater SUV options available on the market, this is affordable luxury.
“I think we can now safely say that the Mazda CX-9 offers a premium ownership and driving experience without the price tag.”
In production now and launching here in July, the second-generation Mazda CX-9 features an all-new 2.5 litre direct-injection turbo charged petrol engine, with both i-stop and i-ELOOP technology, that outputs 170kW at 5000rpm and 420Nm at 2000rpm.
In terms of safety, for the first time on CX-9, Advanced Blind Spot Monitoring (ABSM), Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) and Smart City Brake Support [Forward/Reverse] (SCBS F/R) will be available across the entire CX-9 range. Additional “i-ACTIVSENSE technologies will make their debut on the top-of-the-range Mazda CX-9 Azami, including Adaptive LED Headlamps (ALH), which incorporates High Beam Control (HBC), Driver Attention Alert (DAA), Lane Keep-assist System (LAS) and Smart Brake Support (SBS)”.
