If you live for the perfect outfit and love a bit of flamboyance, this may be the car for you. Even the base trim comes standard with stylish touches like a roofline spoiler and dual exhausts. Inside, a standard leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob add an upscale feel.

A wireless phone charger is available on all except the base trim and comes standard on the Touring Plus trim and higher.

4. Standard all-wheel drive

The Mazda CX-9 isn't just a beauty. It's also capable in all weather, thanks to the all-wheel drive that comes standard on all 2022 models. Whether you live in a snowy climate or navigate slick roads on weekend adventures, you'll have peace of mind knowing your Mazda is up for the job.
