Vehicle Overview

The Mazda CX-9 crossover seats up to seven in three rows and is available with front- or all-wheel drive. It competes with the Chevrolet Traverse, Hyundai Veracruz and Toyota Highlander.

New for 2012

  • Available power liftgate

The second row's backrest can recline or fold flat, and the seat can slide fore and aft to optimize legroom and cargo space. There's room for two in the 50/50-split third-row seat, which also can fold flat. Interior features include:

  • Standard three-zone automatic climate control
  • Cloth seats standard; leather optional
  • Optional powered front seats

An available Towing Prep Package for front-wheel-drive models includes a revised engine control module and a heavy-duty transmission oil cooler and radiator fan. It increases towing capacity from 2,000 to 3,500 pounds. Mechanical features include:
