Generation Overview

Unveiled at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show, the Mazda CX-9's second generation began with the 2016 model year. Designed on Mazda's SkyActiv platform and featuring engines shared with other post-2011 Mazda models, the CX-9 features a 2.5L inline-four turbocharged engine that produces different hp based on the fuel that is being used, ranging from 227 hp to 250 hp. Mazda's Kodo philosophy, which focuses on designing the vehicle based on the emotions of the observer, is apparent in the second-generation CX-9's interior, with a shorter vehicle length on a longer wheelbase, creating shorter overhangs in the front and rear. A wide range of passive and active driver-assist features were added to improve the driver's experience.

Awesome Family SUV with Serious Pep

Loving the room and zoom of this Mazda CX-9! Tech features are amazing, seating is comfortable and space inside with seats down can hold at least 30 bags of mulch which I learned first hand.


  • Power: Turbo is serious and will put heads back in seats. Great for accelerating to merge onto interstates and highways.
  • Interior Space: Easily handles 7 people, even with adults in the rear seats. Ample space for all with our usual 4 as well.
  • Styling: Love the aggressive styling and curves/lines. I've gotten many compliments too.

Luxury car at awesome price.

Very spacious, smooth ride, great pickup on highway, luxurious interior, lots of features. I do wish it had a better sound system and a digital speedometer with a number reading instead of a gauge.


  • Ride and Handling: Feels zippy and handles really well. I don't feel like I'm driving a big car.
  • Interior Space: Great for hauling all of my camera equipment and other cargo.
  • Seat Comfort: Super comfortable on short and long distance rides.


  • Visibility: Hard to see out rear window at times. A good amount of blind spots.
  • Technology and Entertainment: Room for improvement with media interface. Wish it had a number for speedometer and also better speakers.
  • Cabin Noise: A good bit of cabin noise.
