Mazda CX-9 is the largest model of the japanese brand. This is a SUV of similar size to the Volvo XC90 or Audi Q7. It is a segment that, in Europe, is reserved to the premium but in north America it enjoys great acceptance. The new generation of the Mazda CX-9 has been presented at the Auto show in Los Angeles, one of the most important events of the year.
This new generation of the Mazda CX-9 debuts the design language of Kodo in the model, with shapes more fluid and modern that camouflage themselves in some way of their generous size of 5,06 meters in length, 3cm less than before. The battle, however, grows 55mm providing a best livability in the cabin which has space for seven passengers in three rows of seats and improves the levels of comfort thanks to a better insulation. The weight of the new CX-9 is also up to 130 pounds less.
In the interior Mazda has been working hard to give personality to the Mazda CX-9, with an inner more attractive design, and above all with the best materials, appearance more premium. In terms of equipment the model will be well-served by having technologies such as adaptive cruise control, detector angles dead, the wizard of involuntary change of lane, lights short-long automatic, braking, automatic and / or emergency Head-Up display among many other elements of comfort.
Engine 2.5 turbo 250 CV
One of the main changes to the Mazda CX-9 is its mechanics. The japanese have opted for the downsizing and the technology Skyactiv, leaving aside the engine 3.7 V6 277 and adopting a new 2.5 turbo four-cylinder with 250-hp of power and 420 Nm torque engine that consumes 20% less. The variant turbo has been developed from the engine 2.5 from the Mazda 6. It is the first turbocharged gasoline from the family Skyactiv Mazda.
250 horses declared are achieved using Premium gasoline 93 octane. With the normal (in north America) of 87 octane delivers 227 HP. The Mazda CX-9 will be offered in versions with front-wheel drive and intelligent awd.
will Not come to Europe
it Is shocking that the new generation of the Mazda CX-9 is not going to go to Europe, especially when, against all odds, a year ago marketed the outgoing model in Spain, with a very attractive price and a complete equipment. so far In 2015 have been sold in Spain 89 units the Mazda CX-9, a very good figure taking into account that the brand has never had a presence in this segment and that it is only offered with gasoline engine.
Mazda plans to sell a to 50,000 units per year of the new CX-9, concentrating 80% of sales in the north american market.
