New Mazda CX-9 to offer four grades… here later the year
The new Mazda CX-9 will arrive in Australia later this year, and the new seven-seater will be available in four trim levels with the Azami the new pinnacle model.
THE NEW MAZDA CX-9 will fall into line with the rest of its SUV siblings when it arrives in Australia later this year, available in four trim levels. These are: the entry-level Sport, the mid-spec Touring, the GT and the top-spec Azami.
The CX-9 will be available in both front- and all-wheel drive with eight models now available in the range, the largest ever in the CX-9s history. Some of the key mentionables include, 8.4L/100km in front-drive models, and 8.8L/100km in AWD models. This is a fuel consumption cut of almost 25% on the current car.
Mazda’s new 2.5-litre direct injection four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine offers 170kW and 420Nm and is capable of running on 91RON or E10 fuel. It offers both i-stop and i-ELOOP. What are they? i-stop is Mazda’s term for start-stop technology, and i-ELOOP is a capacitor-based brake energy generation system that stores energy which is used to power the vehicle’s electrical system.
“This is the most comprehensive Mazda CX-9 range ever,” said Mazda Australia marketing director Alastair Doak.
“Four grades in both Front and All-Wheel Drive, this brings the Mazda CX-9 range in line with the four distinct grades that we offer on Mazda CX-5 and Mazda CX-3. Both of which have proved to be very appealing to Australian car buyers.
“When the Brand-New Mazda CX-9 arrives, thanks to the strength of the range and the significantly improved fuel economy figures, there is certainly something for everyone.”
