2018 Mazda CX-9: Three Rows of Comfort

The 2018 Mazda CX-9 has seating for seven people across three rows of seats. Even with that sleek and sloping roofline, you'll find plenty of headroom for easy entry, exit, and comfortable posture while seated inside. The front row offers 39.3 inches of headroom and the second row provides 38.5 inches of headroom-each ideal for adults. With 35.4 inches of headroom, the third row is a good fit for kids.

There's also quality materials abound, especially in the top-of-the-line Signature trim. Genuine Rosewood inlays grace the center console, pleasing to the touch and artfully shaped for a hand-carved look. A smooth, unbroken piece of aluminum brings shape and style to the dash, and the premium Nappa leather seats are plush, soft, and easy to clean.  

An Agile, Efficient Performance

The Mazda CX-9 is powered by a turbocharged 2.5L 4-cylinder engine, good for up to 227 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. You'll get a smooth city-driving experience with that powerhouse of an engine, and the Mazda CX-9's available predictive i-ACTIV AWD® (all-wheel drive) system enhances that further with smart power delivery for optimal traction in all kinds of conditions.

The Mazda CX-9 is quite the efficient midsize SUV, with an EPA-estimated 22 city/28 highway MPG in front-wheel drive versions.1 Wherever you and your family need to go in Cleveland, Bedford, or Lorain, the Mazda CX-9 can get you there with fewer stops at the pump.

Staying Safe Behind the Wheel

In the 2018 Mazda CX-9, a range of safety features comes standard-and more than ever before this year. Advanced Blind Spot Monitoring will alert you with audible and visual warnings when it senses vehicles in your blind spot (or if they're fast approaching it) when you've signaled a turn.

There are even more available features, should you opt to add them. Mazda Radar Cruise Control with Stop & Go can help you keep a set speed or set distance from the car in front of you-a simpler way to tackle highway driving. If the vehicle you're following slows down, even all the way to a stop, your Mazda CX-9 will slow or stop-and start again-as needed.
