The attractive mid-sized crossover doesn’t just provide spacious three-row seating for seven but offers a true driver’s experience with its sporty chassis. Here’s your introduction to the 2022 Mazda CX-9!
BASICS ABOUT THE 2022 MAZDA CX-9
TURBOCHARGED POWERTRAIN AND ALL-WHEEL DRIVE
Under the hood of every CX-9 is a turbocharged 227-horsepower 2.5L inline-4 engine that also produces 310 lb-ft of torque. It pairs well with the SKYACTIV-Drive 6-speed automatic transmission, which features manual shifting and a sport mode to really make the CX-9 come alive. The drivetrain has also been enhanced with Mazda’s G-Vectoring system. This intelligent software improves turn-in feel by automatically adjusting engine torque.
For the 2022 model year, the i-ACTIV all-wheel-drive system now comes standard on every trim. Its Off-Road Traction Assist is capable of diverting extra power to help free any wheel that may become stuck in deep mud or snow.
Mazda has earned a reputation for producing automobiles with exquisite handling, and the story remains very much the same with the CX-9. Its independent suspension is made up of stabilizer bars, a MacPherson strut in the front, and multi-linkage in the rear. This setup greatly reduces body roll and improves stability as the vehicle travels through each turn. Steering is incredibly direct and provides an excellent road feel.
Though the CX-9’s suspension has been tuned with performance in mind, it still manages to deliver a smooth ride quality that you’ll appreciate on long trips.
Undoubtedly, one of the CX-9’s highlights is its brilliantly designed interior, which features sophisticated styling and a generous amount of premium materials. Inside the cabin, you’ll find beautiful details like the unique panel textures and brushed aluminum trim. The Signature model goes even further by adding genuine Santos rosewood and Napa leather upholstery with quilted patterning.
Passengers will be able to really stretch out with up to 135.8 cubic feet of space or you can easily fold down the rear seats for hauling large cargo. Creature comforts include standard tri-zone automatic climate control with air filtration, 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, and available heating for the front and second-row seats. The optional one-touch activation power moonroof allows occupants to enjoy a lovely view of the night sky.
INFOTAINMENT CENTER AND CONNECTIVITY
No matter which trim you choose, you’ll be able to access many convenient apps and features through a large 10.25-inch infotainment touchscreen system. Besides the ultra-responsive touchscreen, the system can be navigated with the help of Mazda’s multi-function Commander Control knob or intuitive voice commands. There are plenty of entertainment options, including HD Radio, Pandora streaming radio, and SiriusXM.
Smartphone integration through Apple CarPlay/Android Auto is standard and easy-to-reach USB ports are available for all three rows of seating. Many trims offer a wireless charging station for added convenience.
