More About the Mazda CX-9

Though few would think that any changes were needed for the 2018 Mazda CX-9, far fewer would consider arguing with the results. With the 2017 Mazda CX-9 landing in first place in the Mid-Size SUV category of Car and Driver’s 10Best Trucks and SUVs list, it would have been easy to stick with a winning formula, but Mazda isn’t about sticking with what works — they’re all about pushing things further. As such, the 2018 Mazda CX-9 redesign includes sharpened driving dynamics, increased customization options, added safety features, and even a reinvented interior.

Standard G-Vectoring Control

Car and Driver notes that a 250-hp 2.5L turbo engine helps the new Mazda CX-9 put “charisma into a three-row crossover.” It sure does, and performance is refined further with G-Vectoring Control technology, which now comes standard across all trim levels.

You might not have heard of G-Vectoring Control, but it’s part of what gives the latest Mazda lineup such a significant edge. Sophisticated sensors work with the motion of your steering wheel and the behavior of the vehicle to adjust torque intelligently for outstanding cornering stability.

Revised Interior

Changes to the Mazda CX-9 haven’t affected its exquisitely sculpted body, although a new exterior color option (Soul Red Crystal) is available.

The interior is a different story — it’s full of little updates that you’ll appreciate. Third-row access is easier, power front-seat adjustments are refined, and improved sound insulation keeps the whole cabin feeling like your own peaceful sanctuary, whether you’re cruising between Plainfield and Joliet or stuck in Aurora traffic. Opting for the 2018 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring will also get you heated second-row seats and a heated steering wheel.

New Sport Package

Perhaps the most significant 2018 Mazda CX-9 change is the new Sport package. It chiefly concerns itself with state-of-the-art safety features, including:

  • Automatic High Beam Control: Adjusts the intensity of your headlights as conditions — and other drivers — dictate.
  • Lane Keeping Assist: Applies corrective steering as needed to keep you from accidentally leaving your lane.
  • Rain-Sensing Windshield Wipers: These wipers automatically spring into action when the rain starts to fall.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control: Automatically adjusts your speed as necessary, within a range you specify.

You’ll also enjoy heated front seats to keep yourself warm and cozy when the chilly wind comes whipping off of Lake Michigan.
